about this item

With compelling selections by some of the world's most respected and critically acclaimed writers, THE NEW WORLD READER, 5th Edition, encourages exploration of the significant global issues of the 21st century. Students gain a deeper understanding of the topics that affect their lives, such as the challenges and consequences of globalization, global warming, bilingual education, and redefined gender roles. Challenged by such notable contemporary thinkers and writers as Jhumpa Lahiri, Atul Gawande, Niall Ferguson, Edwidge Danticat, and Jane Goodall, students develop their reading and critical-thinking skills. A consistent pedagogical apparatus includes brief chapter introductions, author headnotes, and pre-reading questions that offer students a preview of the central theme in each section. Exercise sets follow each essay, providing opportunities for deeper writing, reading, and discussion.
