Overview

About the Product

Continuously evolving to address the needs of today's students, THE HODGES HARBRACE HANDBOOK, 19th Edition, guides student writers in developing their understanding of the rhetorical situation. This understanding enables even those students with minimal experience or confidence in their writing to learn to write more effectively--to choose the most pertinent information, arrange it well, and use the most appropriate language when writing for an audience. This grammar-first handbook provides comprehensive coverage of grammar, style, punctuation, mechanics, writing, and research--all presented in the context of rhetorical concerns, including the writer, reader, message, context, and purpose. Like all of its predecessors, the nineteenth edition provides both teachers and students the ease of reference and attention to detail that have made the HARBRACE handbooks THE standard of reliability since 1941.

Features

  • New color-coded citation maps show students where to find information needed to cite a source in MLA and APA style.

  • This comprehensive text situates all discussion of writing--grammar, mechanics, style, diction, invention, drafting, revising, and research--around rhetorical concerns, providing a unifying theme that is easy for students to follow and supports their development of essential writing skills.

  • The design of this visually engaging text makes it easy for students to access information quickly and accurately.

  • The text covers both MLA and APA styles of documentation, including guidelines to prepare students for classes using either style and sample research papers to provide examples of proper documentation.
