Janet Giltrow's Academic Writing: Writing and Reading in the Disciplines has been widely acclaimed in all its editions as a superb textbook―and an important contribution to the pedagogy of introducing university and college students to the conventions of writing in an academic milieu. Giltrow draws meaningfully on theory, especially genre theory, while using specific texts to keep the discussion grounded in the particular. Exercises throughout help students to interpret, summarize, analyze, and compare examples of academic and scholarly writing. The book is intended to demystify scholarly genres, shedding light on their discursive conventions and on academic readers' expectations and values. Academic Writing: An Introduction is a concise version of the full work, designed to be more compact and accessible for use in one-term writing courses. This new edition has been revised throughout and contains many new exercises, updated examples, an expanded discussion of research writing in the sciences, new glossary entries, and a new section on research ethics and the moral compass of the disciplines.

About the Author:

Janet Giltrow is a Professor of English and Associate Dean of Arts at the University of British Columbia.

Richard Gooding is a lecturer in the Department of English and in Arts Studies in Research and Writing at the University of British Columbia. Daniel Burgoyne is a professor in the Department of English at Vancouver Island University. They are the co-authors of the Canadian edition of the New Century Handbook. Marlene Sawatsky is a Senior Lecturer and teaches courses in Writing and Rhetoric in the English Department at Simon Fraser University.

Review:

"Like any complex rhetorical art, good academic writing is less a matter of conforming to rules than of exercising judgment, informed by a sense of audience expectations and developed by disciplined practice. Academic Writing: An Introduction is one of those rare guides that knows this, and helps students help themselves. Its discussions of academic genres, styles, and knowledge-making processes explain the complex cognitive and social principles of academic discourse with remarkable clarity. As students work through the book's many imaginative exercises, they will find themselves developing a new level of rhetorical judgment. Not only will they will they be better equipped to deal with writing assignments in a variety of disciplines; they will likely go on improving as writers after their introductory course has been completed." - Brian Turner, Centre for Academic Writing, University of Winnipeg
