The guiding principle behind this reader is that training in argument helps writers where they need it most: in focusing their sense of audience and purpose. This rich collection includes narrative as well as expository works, representing many different periods, cultures, and genres from Greek drama to American political speeches. With a balance of classic and contemporary selections, the readings clearly demonstrate the relevance of past arguments to present-day concerns. In organization, the text combines coherence with a high degree of flexibility. The first four chapters emphasize critical reading and writing. Each chapter introduces a fundamental concept for readers to consider as they react to the readings. The accompanying commentary and questions place an equal emphasis on critical analysis and the shaping of written arguments. In both cases, the authors focus on audience and intent. The final chapter brings together readings from many different periods and perspectives. For all professionals wishing to improve upon their writing skills.
