Summary

The Little, Brown Handbook has always addressed both the most current and the recurrent needs of composition teachers and students while remaining an accessible reference and a comprehensive classroom text. The eighth edition continues that tradition by offering greatly expanded coverage of writing and researching with computers, smaller chapters for large subjects such as the writing process and research writing, and in numerable improvements in all other material.
