With its unique, 8-chapter opening sequence, The Scribner Handbook for Writers, 3/e offers the most comprehensive coverage of essays and the writing process available in a college handbook. Offering accurate and comprehensive demonstrations of how writers actually write, this handbook includes a discussion of the kinds of reading and thinking required of college students in conjunction with their writing activities and is based on the authors' premise that these processes are interrelated and support each other. The first part shows key relationships among the processes of writing, reading, and thinking creatively and logically, and provides strategies for developing the ideas that will make a good essay. The coverage of essay writing is the most detailed and descriptive section on writing essays among college handbooks. Separate chapters treat writing exploratory, analytical, and argumentative essays. These chapters offer student work with an emphasis on academic writing in response to texts. To connect grammar and usage principles to good writing practice, the grammar and usage chapters offer "writing hints" to apply correct grammar to good writing. In addition, the book offers current coverage on research using the Internet, ESL and language issues, and writing in the disciplines and for business. [via]
