The Little, Brown Compact Handbook packages the authority and currency of its best-selling parent, The Little, Brown Handbook, in a briefer book with a comb-binding and tabbed dividers. Concise and accessible, The Little Brown Compact Handbook helps writing students find what they need and then use what they find. It provides clear explanations of handbook basics--the writing process, grammar and usage, and research writing--along with coverage of critical thinking and argument, writing across the curriculum, using computers and the Internet for writing and research, and the latest guidelines for citing sources in MLA, APA, Chicago, and CSE. The fifth edition builds on the handbook's best-selling features with a stronger emphasis on academic writing, new "Culture and Language" notes that encompass both ESL and dialect issues, new material on critically reading images, and thorough integration between the handbook and its vastly expanded Web site. Revamped coverage of research writing provides the latest MLA documentation guidelines, stresses the library as Web gateway, shows how to use and document subscription services, provides a case study in evaluating a Web site, and covers plagiarism more extensively in a chapter of its own. A fully interactive CD-ROM can be packaged with the text.
