    Anthony Weston

    A Rulebook for Arguments (Fourth Edition)

    "This is the ultimate 'how-to' book for anyone who wants to use reasons and evidence in support of conclusions, to be clear instead of confusing, persuasive instead of dogmatic, and better at evaluating the arguments of others.  No one outgrows its forty-five timeless rules, all explained and illustrated with vivid examples.  The fourth edition, even more elegantly organized and concise than before, adds new material on oral presentations and Web sources that everyone needs."
         —Debra Nails, Michigan State University

  3. Gorgias (Zeyl Edition)

    Translated by Donald J. Zeyl

    Gorgias (Zeyl Edition)

    “This is an excellent translation. It achieves a very high standard of accuracy and readability, two goals very difficult to attain in combination when it comes to such a master of prose and philosophical argument as Plato. Because of this the book is suitable for courses at all levels in philosophy, from introductory courses on Plato, or problems in Philosophy, to graduate seminars.”
         —Gerasimos Santas, Teaching Philosophy

  4. Persuasion: History, Theory, Practice

    George Pullman

    Persuasion: History, Theory, Practice

    George Pullman's lively and accessible introduction to the study of persuasion is an ideal text for use in courses where the understanding and practice of argumentation, rhetoric, and critical thinking are central.

  5. Plato: Gorgias & Aristotle: Rhetoric

    Plato & Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction, by Joe Sachs

    Plato: Gorgias & Aristotle: Rhetoric

    By pairing translations of Gorgias and Rhetoric, along with an outstanding introductory essay, Joe Sachs demonstrates Aristotles response to Plato. If in the Gorgias Plato probes the question of what is problematic in rhetoric, in Rhetoric, Aristotle continues the thread by looking at what makes rhetoric useful. By juxtaposing the two texts, an interesting "conversation" is illuminated—one which students of philosophy and rhetoric will find key in their analytical pursuits.

  6. The English Language

    Jack Lynch

    The English Language

    Updated and expanded from one of the most popular grammar sites on the web, this book provides a modern guide to English usage for the 21st century. With topics arranged alphabetically and written in an enjoyable and readable tone, The English Language: A User's Guide will help students and writers understand the nature of the language, explaining the "why" of the rules as well as what constitutes good grammar and style. Going beyond the prescriptive wrong /right examples, Jack Lynch includes examples of weak/strong, good/better, disputed/preferred, and informal/formal usage.

    Michael Harvey

    The Nuts and Bolts of College Writing (Second Edition)

    "This wonderful little book has helped improve the level of writing in all the courses I teach. No one should graduate from college without having used it."
         —Gonzalo Munevar, Lawrence Technological University

  8. Writing a Successful Research Paper: A Simple Approach

    Stanley Chodorow

    Writing a Successful Research Paper: A Simple Approach

    "Writing a successful research paper is not easy, but Stanley Chodorow's book is so lucid and well organized that, with it as an aid, students will find the process less daunting—and perhaps even satisfying. The sixth chapter, on using evidence, is the best and most helpful thing I've ever read on that crucial topic."
       —Al Filreis, Kelly Professor of English, Faculty Director of the Kelly Writers House, and Director of the Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing, University of Pennsylvania

  9. PNG

    Gordon Harvey

    Writing with Sources (2nd Edition)

    "The best little book for college writers. Harvey understands the writer's position—and plight—when composing essays that must respond to texts yet make independent assertions. Writing with Sources not only provides clear rules of citation for papers in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, but it also shows how writers can incorporate and advance ideas learned from other writers, while avoiding the bad habits of composition that can lead to plagiarism. It's the one book to keep on your desk."
         —David Gewanter, English Department, Georgetown University
