Summary

The first situation-based 3-in-1 writing guide (including a rhetoric, reader, and research manual), THE HARBRACE GUIDE TO WRITING, CONCISE 2nd Edition, brings the rhetorical situation to life. Renowned author and educator Cheryl Glenn translates rhetorical theory into easy-to-follow (and easy-to-teach) techniques that help sharpen students' ability to observe what words, assertions, or opinions might work best with a particular audience in a specific situation.
