Built on Diana Hacker's vision and developed with the help of expert composition teachers, the seventh edition of The Bedford Handbook is the indispensable classroom and reference tool it always was -- only better. Now with the strongest coverage of research writing in a full-sized handbook, the seventh edition helps students meet one of the core challenges of academic writing: maintaining their own voice while writing from sources. This edition also adds innovative tips from writing center tutors, sound advice for writing across the curriculum, and substantially more help for writing with and writing about visuals.
