View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This topic-oriented, interdisciplinary rhetoric/reader text combines thematically-grouped readings and a hallmark writing approach. Presented in two parts, the book begins by focusing on the three skills that are the key to writing in all disciplines - summary, synthesis and critique. It then features clusters of readings on interdisciplinary topics. Organized by theme, as well as by discipline, these readings represent the different writing styles and approaches taken by academics and professionals in a variety of fields. This edition is updated to include new material on conducting research and writing research papers, a new "practice chapter" that acts as a bridge between the writing coverage and reading chapters, and more than 60 new reading selections, including new model student essays.
