The Canadian Writer's Handbook(CWH) is a comprehensive, college/university-level handbook designed to help students write with confidence in a variety of rhetorical situations. Building on the foundations laid by William Messenger and Jan de Bruyn over twenty-five years ago, Judy Brown and Ramona Montagnes have have completely updated this comprehensive and authoritative text, which features detailed descriptions and examples of the entire writing process, from basic grammar, to constructing sentences and paragraphs, to pre-writing, to composing, and finally to proofreading and editing. The fifth edition has been slightly reorganized, with the discussion of principles of composition moved to the start of the book to better suit the needs of instructors and students. EAL icons point to new material of particular benefit to students learning English as an additional language. The discussion on achieving academic integrity and avoiding plagiarism has been brought up-to-date, as have all examples in the section on documentation.
