Summary

Continuously evolving to address the needs of students, the Hodges' Harbrace Handbook, Sixteenth Edition, guides student writers in developing their understanding of the rhetorical situation. Through this understanding, they learn how to write effectively-how to choose the most effective information, how to arrange it effectively, and how to decide on the most appropriate language to use when writing for any audience. This grammar-first handbook comprehensively covers grammar, style, punctuation, and mechanics as situated around rhetorical concerns-the writer, reader, message, context, and exigence (the reason for writing).
