What do you look for in a thematic composition reader? Certainly classic essays that every student should read, as well as fresh selections that showcase some of the best new writing; plus an array of engaging themes that point toward the disciplinary thinking and writing students will have to perform as undergraduates; and helpful support that moves students from critical reading to thoughtful writing to using sources and revising. The Arlington Reader: Themes for Writers offers all this—and more. It is the least expensive and most manageable full-service thematic reader on the market, with a price students can afford and in a size they'll be happy to carry in their backpacks. The fourth edition includes a substantial new mini-rhetoric, with three full chapters of critical reading and writing process instruction, as well as new topics and readings that will challenge students' assumptions and spark considered writing. The print text is now integrated with e-Pages for The Arlington Reader, designed to take advantage of what the Web can do.
