Remaining one of the best-selling interdisciplinary composition texts for over twenty-five years, Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum helps students of all majors and interests learn to write effectively for college.


This rhetoric and reader guides students through the essential college-level writing skills of summary, critique, synthesis, and analysis. A brand new section called Short Takes bridges the gap between writing instruction and readings with a series of step-by-step exercises. The anthology in Part III provides a wide range of carefully-selected, cross-disciplinary readings, including two new chapters on rumor and advertising.
