The expert team of Annette T. Rottenburg and Donna Haisty Winchell provides a helpful resource in their book Elements of Argument: A Text and Reader, ISBN 9780312646998. Comprehensive coverage of modern and classical issues is featured through the lens of critical thinking, reading, writing, and research in this text. Strategies are presented to students on how to analyze, research, and write arguments through the use of new and updated features boasted in this latest edition. The first half of this writing duo is that of Annette T. Rottenberg. Formerly serving as assistant director of the writing program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, she has also taught composition and literature at Chicago City College, SUNY at Buffalo, Duke University, and schools abroad. The second contributor to this text is Donna Haisty Winchell. Currently she is serving as Professor of English at Clemson University where she also, formerly, directed the Freshman Composition program and co-directed Digital Portfolio Institutes. Winchell has also edited several freshman writing anthologies and is a frequent presenter at professional conferences. Rottenberg and Winchell strategically organize the contents of Elements of Argument: A Text and Reader across five parts and 20 chapters. Part 1 provides students with an introduction to 'Understanding Argument' including such topics as approaches to argument, critical reading, and analytical writing. Part 2 guides readers in 'Analyzing the Elements' with a look at definition, claims, support, warrants, logic and language. Part 3 delves into concepts surrounding 'Researching, Writing, and Presenting Arguments.' Chapters within this section provide students with information on all aspects of an argumentative paper including the steps of planning and researching, writing and documentation, and oral presentation. Part 4 is entitled 'Multiple Viewpoints' and includes chapters that explore various questions including 'How are social networking sites affecting human interactions?' and 'What is the role of sex and violence in popular culture?' The final section of this book, part 5, devotes itself to 'Classic Arguments.' This section provides arguments from such famous writers as Plato, Henry David Thoreau, and George Orwell.
