Comprising the textbook portion of the widely adopted Current Issues and Enduring Questions, it draws on the authors’ dual expertise in comprehensive rhetorical strategies and effective persuasive writing to help college students move from critical thinking to argumentative and researched writing. This extraordinarily versatile textbook includes comprehensive coverage of classic and contemporary approaches to argument, from Toulmin to Aristotelian, to a new chapter on rhetorical analysis of pop culture texts, as well as 35 readings (including e-Pages that allow college students to take advantage of working with multimodal arguments on the Web), and a casebook on the individual and the state. This affordable guide can stand alone or supplement a larger anthology of readings.
