With compelling selections by some of the world's most respected and critically acclaimed writers, THE NEW WORLD READER, Fourth Edition, encourages exploration of the significant global challenges of the 21st century. Students gain a deeper understanding of the topics that affect their lives, such as the challenges and consequences of globalization, global warming, bilingual education, and redefined gender roles. Challenged by such notable contemporary thinkers and writers as Elie Wiesel, Fareed Zakaria, Richard Rodriguez, Edwidge Danticat, and Jane Goodall, students develop their reading and critical-thinking skills. A consistent pedagogical apparatus includes brief chapter introductions, author headnotes, and pre-reading questions that offer students a preview of the central theme in each section. Exercise sets follow each essay, providing for deeper writing, reading, and discussion opportunities.

Gilbert H. Muller is a Professor Emeritus of English at LaGuardia Community College and the author of several college textbooks as well as scholarly books on William Cullen Bryant and Flannery O'Connor.Review:
"THE NEW WORLD READER is very appealing to college students because of the wide range of relevant, concise, and readable essays by influential contemporary voices. The variety of questions for discussion and writing build rhetorical strategies and challenge students to think critically about the rapidly changing world in which they are coming of age."
"This is an anthology which pushes students not only to think about their identities as Americans, but also as global citizens - and to encourage us not to fall into isolationism or self-absorption as a nation. It does this by exposing and discussing the positive and negative aspects of our (inter)national identity, without either demonizing or sugar-coating America."
