The Longman Reader

Front Cover
Featuring the same superior teaching apparatus and thought-provoking selections as its widely-praised parent text, The Longman Reader, Brief Edition is a shorter and even more economical alternative to the best-selling, rhetorically-organized original, The Longman Reader. The Seventh Edition offers fresh examples of professional essays that range widely in subject matter and approach, from the humorous to the informative, from personal meditation to argument. Each selection captures students interest and clearly illustrates a specific pattern of development. The text also includes separate chapters on reading and writing, detailed introductions to the patterns of development, before and after student essays for each pattern, and more activities and assignments than any comparable reader.
