The Hodges Harbrace Handbook
Continuously evolving to address the needs of today's students, THE HODGES HARBRACE HANDBOOK, 18E, guides student writers in developing their understanding of the rhetorical situation. This understanding enables even those students with minimal experience or confidence in their writing to learn to write more effectively--to choose the most pertinent information, arrange it well, and use the most appropriate language when writing for an audience. This grammar-first handbook provides comprehensive coverage of grammar, style, punctuation, mechanics, writing, and research--all presented in the context of rhetorical concerns, including the writer, reader, message, context, and purpose. Like all of its predecessors, the 18th edition provides both teachers and students the ease of reference and attention to detail that have made the HARBRACE handbooks THE standard of reliability since 1941.
