The second edition of this handbook for college students maintains its focus on the rhetorical demands of writing and its emphasis on writing in the disciplines.
Providing a reliable standard for writing students and teachers, this text is based on the Harbrace Handbook of English (1941), the perennial college grammar and writing guide that grew from a systematic analysis of errors in some 20,000 college papers. In addition to a cleaner and clearer design, the second edition offers new emphasis on the rhetorical situation; revamped chapters on drafting and revising essays, e-designing, and writing arguments; new chapters on e-writing and evaluating online and print sources; coverage of writing for academic discourse, social and natural sciences, and business; and expanded style guides for researched writing.
