Andrea A. Lunsford's latest findings show that today's students write more than ever before -- and make rhetorically appropriate choices in texts they create outside the classroom. "We're in the midst of a literacy revolution the likes of which we haven't seen since Greek civilization," she notes.The St. Martin's Handbook, Seventh Edition is the first handbook to help students build on the smart decisions they make as recreational writers in order to succeed in their academic and professional work. And,The St. Martin's Handbookis the all-in-one teaching tool and reference that shows students how to write effectively for any purpose.
