The Argument Handbook

The Argument Handbook is a reference tool and classroom text designed to help students understand complex rhetorical situations and navigate the process of transforming private thoughts into persuasive, public statements. The book is organized around three lenses that help students focus on the practical challenges of persuasive writing. Its modular organization makes it easier for students to find what they need and easier for instructors to assign the content that fits their course.
