Now in its fourth edition, Popular Writing in America has been thoroughly revised to include more expository writing--essays and articles from magazines, newspapers, and bestselling books--and more argumentative material--clusters of readings, consisting largely of newspaper editorials, on controversial issues such as the death penalty. This popular anthology retains its successful mixture of excerpts from a broad spectrum of sources and its emphasis on the connections between style, subject, strategy, and intended audience. As in previous editions, the selections follow this principle of interconnection and are each related, either thematically or stylistically, to at least one other piece in the collection. An expanded "Table of Linked Selections" encourages students to explore the different ways that writers for the various media treat the same material.
