NEW!-Running marginalia throughout the text highlight issues related to new media, cultural context and problem-solving. Many assignments allow students to conduct research using InfoTrac- College Edition. With each new copy of the book students will receive a passcode, allowing them FREE access to 10 million full-text articles from scholarly and popular periodicals.
A new website features four online casebooks with video clips from CNN. The casebooks expand upon the major themes of the reading section.
An accessible overview of the traditional elements of argument, including classical and Rogerian argument as well as the Toulmin model are included.
NEW!-A completely revised section now in Chapter 5, "Constructing Arguments," expands the discussion of the traditional elements of argument, while asking students to consider design and visual elements.
NEW!-A refocused Part IV, "Negotiating Differences," now presents controversial topics that resist a simple pro/con, win/lose stance; instead the focus shifts to analyzing and constructing argument in order to reach common ground. The book also teaches students to decide when it is appropriate to engage in arguing an issue and how to arrive at satisfactory conclusions.
NEW!-A new Chapter 3, "The Contexts of Argument," thoroughly details the rhetorical and historical contexts of argument, as well as the influence of cultural differences on its development.
NEW!-Virtually all of the 90 readings in the full version are new and include academic essays, newspaper articles and online publications on current themes such as globalization, nature of community, free enterprise, and the American national identity.
NEW!-A new Chapter 4, "The Media for Argument," focuses on visual and electronic media and includes a full-color section. Negotiating Differences boxes in the reading section contain assignments directing students to write about issues that resist simple pro/con formulation.
NEW!-The apparatus presents the context in which the original argument appeared and, in some of the Questions for Discussion, asks how that context affects the argument. Other questions invite students to think about the ways in which the medium affects the argument.
NEW!-"Complication" questions provide students with information that does not appear in the reading itself, but may complicate how the reader interprets that argument. Examples of this information include the background of an author, how the essay came to be published, or what historical event impelled the argument.
