The anthology includes examples of academic writing, of writing for popular audiences, of journalism, of speeches, and of blog posts and other writing that originated on the web. Selections are arranged by author in rough chronological order; the book also includes alternative tables of contents listing material by thematic subject and by genre and rhetorical style. Each selection is prefaced by a headnote providing context, and followed by questions and suggestions for discussion. Explanatory annotations are provided at the bottom of the page, and paragraphs are numbered for ready reference during class discussions. Brief biographical notes appear at the back of the book."--"@en ;
