The Bedford Guide for College Writers with Reader, Research Manual, and Handbook 8th Edition


More Description

When it was first published twenty years ago, "The Bedford Guide for College Writers" brought a lively and innovative new approach to the teaching of writing. Since that time, authors X. J. and Dorothy M. Kennedy have won praise for their friendly tone and their view, apparent on every page of the text, that writing is the "usually surprising, often rewarding art of thinking while working with language." More recently, experienced teacher and writer Marcia F. Muth joined the author team, adding more practical advice to help all students -- even those underprepared for college work -- become successful academic writers. While retaining the highly praised "Kennedy touch," "The Bedford Guide" continues to evolve to meet classroom needs. The new edition does even more to build essential academic writing skills, with expanded coverage of audience analysis, source-based writing, argumentation and reasoning, and more.
