The New Century,Fifth Edition, provides the answers today's students need as writers and researchers in a digital age.  From databases to social networking, this handbook shows students how to use technologies to make appropriate rhetorical choices and to become more successful college writers in all of their courses, while also providing clear, comprehensive coverage of handbook basics–writing, grammar and usage, research, and documentation.  

Authors Christine Hult and Tom Huckin ground this book in the digital context, bringing their expertise in research, computers and writing, grammar, and linguistics and their extensive experience in teaching first-year composition to this remarkable handbook–a handbook that is accessible, flexible, comprehensive, and current, and that speaks to students in today’s language.  More than any other handbook, The New Century addresses the primary concerns of composition students: using digital tools to become more effective writers and researchers, writing for courses beyond English, making correct grammatical and stylistic choices, and avoiding plagiarism.
