About this item
Packed with readings on current -- and often controversial -- topics from across the disciplines, PERSPECTIVES ON CONTEMPORARY ISSUES, 8e, equips you to think, read, and write critically. Part I emphasizes writing and research, with separate chapters on reading critically, the writing process, writing a summary, the critique, argumentation, synthesis requiring documentation, and the research paper. The sometimes provocative -- always intriguing -- readings include questions at the end that help you make a personal connection by applying the topic to your life. Unique "Responding to Visuals" sections prompt you to analyze images. In addition, the reader explains the latest MLA guidelines.
