American Dreams: Readings for Writers
This text comprises contemporary and historical readings, mostly short essays, organized around nine themes relevant to various aspects of the American Dream. In addition to the 87 reading selections in Part II, this relatively compact reader offers five substantive chapters on reading and writing; each of these includes instruction, sample readings, and exercises. Substantial, unintrusive apparatus includes chapter introductions and suggested topics for writing, selection headnotes, vocabulary lists with definitions, and questions for discussion.
