The "Research Guide" section includes three comprehensive chapters on the research process. The "Reader" section contains forty-four essays that illustrate the different writing strategies and display a wide variety of styles, tones, and themes. The "Handbook" section offers easy access to the major elements of grammar, punctuation, and mechanics, and includes a unit on spelling and a glossary of word usage.
