Summary

Unrivaled in the high quality of its selections, this contemporary reader presents 36 diverse and provocative essays drawn from the widely respected Houghton Mifflin/Ticknor & Fields Best American Essays series. A thoughtful introduction by Atwan on the essay and additional reflections on the genre by famous essayists provide students with a solid foundation. Biographical notes and brief questions for discussion or written response accompany each reading, and an Instructor's Resource Manual offers additional pedagogical tools. The book's organization reflects the types of writing most often taught in introductory writing courses personal, informative, and argumentative and selections within those categories reflect many of the issues that currently enliven campus discussion and debate.

* Two alternative organizations feature arrangement by 10 traditional rhetorical methods and a topical grouping that links essays to current issues for argument and debate.
* A fascinating prologue integrates 25 incisive excerpts from all the guest- editor introductions to the series, including such renowned contemporary writers as Joseph Epstein, Annie Dillard, Justin Kaplan, and Elizabeth Hardwick.
