about this item

For courses in Argument.


A practical, visually engaging introduction to argument supported by provocative readings on contemporary issues

Nothing you learn in college will prove to be more important than the ability to create an effective argument. That’s the philosophy embodied in Good Reasons with Contemporary Arguments, 7th Edition, an argument rhetoric/reader which avoids complicated schemes and terminology in favor of providing readers with the practical ways of finding "good reasons" to argue for the positions they take. The text uses lively, nontechnical language, an attractive visual design, numerous examples, and fresh, timely readings to engage readers’ interest. The revised 7th Edition includes more than 40 new readings, along with new case studies, chapters, and projects.


Good Reasons with Contemporary Arguments, 7th Edition is also available via Pearson Revel™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience. Learn more.
