Decker's Patterns of Exposition is a modern classic - an accessible collection of quality essays which aptly illustrate the rhetorical modes and reflect the diversity of our culture, and the changes and challenges of our times. Practical, concise writing apparatus includes chapter openers that introduce each rhetorical mode. An emphasis on critical reading and writing is demonstrated through the "Ways of Writing" section and an all new section, "Becoming a Critical Reader." Within chapters, some essays have been grouped into thematic clusters on provocative topics to show how writers use multiple patterns to address the same theme.
