Holt Handbook 6E

Front Cover
The goal for the sixth edition of THE HOLT HANDBOOK is the same as it was for the first edition: To create a writer's handbook that serves as a classroom tool, a comprehensive reference, and a writer's companion. In preparing for the first edition, the authors concentrated on making the book inviting, accessible, useful, and clear for both teachers and students. In the sixth edition, they have kept these goals in mind, adding distinctive new design features, and fine-tuning established ones in order to make information even easier to locate than before. As a result, the sixth edition of THE HOLT HANDBOOK is the most accessible hardback college handbook currently on the market. THE HOLT HANDBOOK, Sixth Edition, puts writing first. It is a classroom text, a reference book, and -- above all -- a writing companion that students can turn to again and again for advice and guidance as they write in college and beyond.
