There are no easy answers, but to recognize the complexity and paradoxical nature of the institution we call the law is crucial to operating successfully within it. Understanding the competing rhetoric used by those engaged in the legal process can help guide our decision-making, whether it is in deciding who to elect to create laws in our best interest or in determining our own courses of action in promoting causes we believe in, causes which most likely will involve legal issues and actions somewhere along the process. 032188194X / 9780321881946 Writing Process, The, with NEW MyCompLab -- Access Card Package Package consists of: 0205210090 / 9780205210091 Writing Process, The 020589190X / 9780205891900 NEW MyCompLab - Valuepack Access Card

Reading and Writing from Literature

View: 6628

Reading and Writing from Literature is ideal for instructors who wish to support students with significant writing instruction accompanied by a robust literary anthology that includes fiction, poetry, drama, and essays. Using an approachable, conversational tone, this thematic anthology and writing text emphasizes intertextuality—the way in which texts, including the student's own writing, grow out of other texts. Thirteen chapters of guidance on writing about literature (Parts I–III) cover such topics as planning, drafting, and revising essays on literature, research and documentation in a literature-based context, writing argumentative literary essays, and creating a writing portfolio. Part IV introduces students to the genres—short stories, poems, plays, and essays. Part V provides a thorough overview of figurative language. Part VI, the text's thematic anthology, is organized around themes of particular interest to students: Gender and Relationships, Families, Experience and Identity, Individual and Society, People and Cultures in Conflict and Change, and Work and the Quality of Life. New! Responding to the increased emphasis on visual literacy in many literature and literature and composition courses, a new four-color insert presents art and photography for analysis. Prompt questions encourage students to respond to the images with creative and analytical writings. New! "Writing Arguments" (Chapter 9) provides a thorough and nuanced definition of argument followed by a careful analysis of an argumentative essay (Barbara Kingsolver's "The One-Eyed Monster, and Why I Don't Let Him In") that takes into account issues such as persona, audience, and supporting evidence, then guides students through the argument writing process. The chapter concludes with a sample student argumentative essay analyzing William Blake's "The Clod and the Pebble." New! "Introduction to Figurative Language" (Part V, Chapter 19) explains and illustrates all of the major types of figurative language. Students learn how to identify and interpret metaphors, similes, paradoxes, irony, and other figures across literary genres and other contexts. This section features the most extensive and detailed treatment of figurative language of any composition text on the market. New! "Writing Literature-Based Research Papers" (Chapter 10) presents a thorough overview of the research process, including material on keeping a research log, narrowing focus, identifying and keeping track of source information, and citing outside sources. New! Concluding chapter, "Literature, So What?," addresses a question neglected in other literature and composition textbooks: Beyond preparing students for writing in the university and on the job, does literature have any value? Is the acquisition of "marketable skills" the ultimate and only aim of writing and reading literature? This essay argues that the writing and reading of literature also intensify the experience of living by fostering habits of contemplation and empathy in a hectic and often indifferent world. Revised! Part VI, "A Thematic Anthology of Readings" contains 45 new poems, essays/nonfiction writing, and short stories, with an emphasis on the contemporary. This edition features a stronger representation of international and multicultural authors, including such writers as Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Derek Walcott, Yusef Komunyaka, Sei Shonagon, and Allan Gurganus.

The Craft of Political Research is a non-technical introduction to research design and analysis in political science, emphasizing the choices we make when we design a research project and analyze its results. The book’s approach centers on asking an interesting research question, and then designing inquiry into the question so as to eliminate as many alternative explanations as possible. How do we develop theory, and what constitutes a good research question? How do we develop measures and gather evidence to answer a question? How do we analyze our findings? Students will be introduced to such topics as multidimensional concepts, levels of measurement, validity, reliability, random and non-random measurement error, sampling, case selection, causality, experimental and quasi-experimental design, statistical inference, and regression and correlation analysis. Throughout, the emphasis is on understanding the "back story" of analysis — why do we measure in a particular way, why do we choose one design as against another, why do we conduct our analysis as we do. Emphasizing the internal logic of research methods and the collaborative nature of the research process, the greatest strength of the book is its clarity and the large range of political science examples it provides. It works at a conceptual level, seeking an understanding of the principles that underlie techniques and the reasons that we choose them. New to this edition: Updated and international examples from the US, UK, Latin America and China amongst others, and international organizations such as the World Bank and the United Nations. New section, "Reading Political Science" reviews sources of published political research, with some broad principles for how to find good sources, and advises students on what to look for in reading a research report New section, "Gathering Accurate Information" reviews published sources of data, such as UNESCO, and offers advice about how to use such sources. It advises students on how to gather data in personal interviews and it acquaints them with publicly available data sets for secondary analysis. Online material featuring revised learning objectives for each chapter, and a new section offering projects and questions for each chapter.

Praised for the clarity of its writing, careful research, and distinctive theme – that urban politics in the United States has evolved as a dynamic interaction between governmental power, private actors, and a politics of identity – City Politics remains a classic study of urban politics. Its enduring appeal lies in its persuasive explanation, careful attention to historical detail, and accessible and elegant way of teaching the complexity and breadth of urban and regional politics which unfold at the intersection of spatial, cultural, economic, and policy dynamics. Now in a thoroughly revised 10th edition, this comprehensive resource for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as well-established researchers in the discipline, retains the effective structure of past editions while offering important updates, including: All-new sections on immigration, the Black Lives Matter Movement, the downtown condo boom, and the impact of the sharing economy on urban neighborhoods (especially the rise of Airbnb). Individual chapters introducing students to pressing urban issues such as gentrification, sustainability, metropolitanization, urban crises, the creative class, shrinking cities, racial politics, and suburbanization. The most recent census data integrated throughout to provide current figures for analysis, discussion, and a more nuanced understanding of current trends. Taught on its own, or supplemented with the optional reader American Urban Politics in a Global Age for more advanced readers, City Politics remains the definitive text on urban politics – and how they have evolved in the US over time – for a new generation of students and researchers.

An anthology like this has been a long time coming. For the last fifteen years, every place we come together, whether it was The World Stage, or someones party, a birthday gathering, a childs naming ceremony, a funeral or a home-going, whether it was a cement corner or Fifth Street Dicks (Richard Fultons place) backed up by a jazz band, we have always brought words. We all knew Ýthis anthology ̈ needed to happen, but we were busy living and loving, making babies and building careers. And, of course, we were writing. Yet, we knew a renaissance was happening in Los Angeles, akin to the Harlem Renaissance. But we were caught up in it, shaking, grinding our pencils down, downing endless cups of coffee at a table outside Fifth Street, trying to find the words to say it precisely the way our heart was beating the sounds out. Blurbs: "There are convergences - spatial, political, cultural and artistic - that define a people's spirit and leave an indelible mark on the world's psyche. To say that this anthology is important or a landmark moment is to state the obvious. The work in this anthology weaves a tight rope around power and proves that the particular is the universal, the historical is the eternal and the ancestral soul is the dance of art. With the delicacy of an old school album, the music here is all flame and these poets are all fire people. Surrender to the sweet burn." - Chris Abani, author of The Virgin of Flames and GraceLand. "These Shaman Poets continue to renew and resurrect the power of verse, the sacredness of truth, and the eternal dance of words on pages and stages, as poets do everywhere, in righting and re-writing the world. If there were ever a time for such courageousword weavers, it's now." - Luis J. Rodriguez, acclaimed poet and founder/editor of Tia Chucha Press. About the Editor: Shonda Buchanan, poet and journalist, is a fellow of the Sundance Institute, PEN Center USA West Emerging Voices and the California Community Foundation. An assistant professor of English at Hampton University, Shonda is currently editing a novel, a memoir, a collection of poetry and a novella.

On the Writing Process

View: 2674

The long-awaited guide to writing long-form nonfiction by the legendary author and teacher Draft No. 4 is a master class on the writer’s craft. In a series of playful, expertly wrought essays, John McPhee shares insights he has gathered over his career and has refined while teaching at Princeton University, where he has nurtured some of the most esteemed writers of recent decades. McPhee offers definitive guidance in the decisions regarding arrangement, diction, and tone that shape nonfiction pieces, and he presents extracts from his work, subjecting them to wry scrutiny. In one essay, he considers the delicate art of getting sources to tell you what they might not otherwise reveal. In another, he discusses how to use flashback to place a bear encounter in a travel narrative while observing that “readers are not supposed to notice the structure. It is meant to be about as visible as someone’s bones.” The result is a vivid depiction of the writing process, from reporting to drafting to revising—and revising, and revising. Draft No. 4 is enriched by multiple diagrams and by personal anecdotes and charming reflections on the life of a writer. McPhee describes his enduring relationships with The New Yorker and Farrar, Straus and Giroux, and recalls his early years at Time magazine. Throughout, Draft No. 4 is enlivened by his keen sense of writing as a way of being in the world.
