Summary

The first situation-based 4-in-1 writing guide (including a rhetoric, reader, research manual and handbook), Cheryl Glenn's THE HARBRACE GUIDE TO WRITING infuses the common genres and strategies with a rhetorical awareness in the context of actual local situations. THE HARBRACE GUIDE TO WRITING translates rhetorical theory into easy-to-follow (and easy-to-teach) techniques that help sharpen your ability to observe what words, assertions, or opinions might work best with a particular audience in a specific situation.
