The new title, Dialogues: An Argument Rhetoric and Reader, 3/e (formerly Crossfire), represents argument not as a battle to be won but as a process of dialogue and deliberation among people with diverse values and perspectives. The Third Edition places a new emphasis on finding common ground, encouraging students to listen and respond to those who hold different views, and to carefully deliberate about these multiple perspectives before arriving at a position. Part One contains succinct instruction on analyzing and developing arguments, from critical reading to source documentation. Part Two offers a diverse collection of provocative essays from both the popular and scholarly medium. The writing in this text is lucid, lively, and engaging as it addresses students as writers and thinkerswithout overwhelming them with unnecessary jargon or theory.
