The New Century, Fourth Edition, meets students where they are–as writers and researchers in an electronic age. This handbook shows students how to use new technologies to make appropriate rhetorical choices and to become more successful college writers in all of their courses, while also providing clear, comprehensive coverage of handbook basics–writing, grammar and usage, research, and documentation.

Recognizing that most writers today use computers and the Internet for composition, The New Century Handbook, Brief Edition is the first short handbook to fully integrate computer use into the writing and research process.
Chapters on writing not only explain the various stages of creating a paper, but also incorporate instruction on how to use word processors to create better developed, well-written essays. Likewise, the research section acknowledges users' varying experience with computers and the Internet, so it illustrates how to find and evaluate print and electronic sources to formulate thoughtful and carefully documented research papers. The chapters on grammar and mechanics offer a complete reference guide and include tips on how to work with grammar- and spell-checkers.
For anyone who uses the internet for research and writing.About the Author:
