Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing is a compact but complete guide to critical thinking and argumentation. Comprising the text portion of the widely adopted Current Issues and Enduring Questions, it draws on the authors’ dual expertise in effective persuasive writing and comprehensive rhetorical strategies to help students move from critical thinking to argumentative and researched writing. With comprehensive coverage of classic and contemporary approaches to argument, including Aristotle, Toulmin, and a range of alternative views, as well as 35 readings and a casebook on the state and the individual, it is an extraordinarily versatile text. This affordable guide can stand alone or supplement a larger anthology of readings.

"This is a relatively small text that manages to cover more than enough material in enough depth to provide students with a solid grounding in argument." - Joanne Addison, University of Colorado

Once students realize how to identify various types of evidence and the key strategies to analyze and evaluate each type, they write with improved acuity and depth." - John Regan, Boston University, College of General Studies
