Summary

Alive with the inimitable Kennedy wit, wisdom, and grace, The Bedford Reader has since its first edition been distinguished by its well-chosen selections that students truly enjoy reading, and by its lively instruction in reading and writing. The ninth edition retains the trademark features -- such as writer's commentaries, an anthology of classic essays that combine the methods, and student casebooks on using the methods in practical situations -- that have made its predecessors a consistent favorite of both instructors and students.
