Andrea A. Lunsford's latest findings show that today's students write more than ever before -- and make rhetorically
appropriate choices in texts they create outside the classroom. “We're in the midst of a literacy revolution the likes
of which we haven't seen since Greek civilization,” she notes. The St. Martin's Handbook, Seventh Edition is the first
handbook to help students build on the smart decisions they make as recreational writers in order to succeed in their
academic and professional work. And, The St. Martin's Handbook is the all-in-one teaching tool and reference that shows
students how to write effectively for any purpose.
