This immediately engaging composition resource features a thematically-organized collection of readings, a modes-based rhetoric, and a concise handbook.

Between Worlds opens with more than 75 multi-genre readings reflecting the human condition of being “in between”—generations, cultures, genders, perceptions, points of view. A research chapter with information on using and documenting sources in MLA and APA style and a brief handbook section are also included.

Between Worlds emphasizes the importance of reading, critical thinking, and analysis in all writing.

Very interesting March 12, 2011
I rented this textbook for class and and I liked it so much. It contains very good essays for great reading. I use this book for class but I've found myself reading it on my down time because of the content. This book is reflecting the human condition of being "in between "generations, cultures, genders, perceptions, points of view. It's so much more interesting than a standard English comp textbook.
