For courses in English Composition.   This version of Student’s Book of College English has been updated the reflect the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016) *
A complete course in writing, in one comprehensive volume Acclaimed for its clarity and accessibility, Student’s Book of College English, Fourteenth Edition offers a rhetoric, reader, research guide, and handbook in one cohesive and efficient presentation. The rhetoric appeals to students with its straightforward and jargon-free style. Instructors appreciate its coverage of the writing process, the rhetorical modes (including argumentation), and its chapter on writing about literature.  The reader includes selections from sources ranging from academia to the Internet on timely topics that pique students’ interest. The in-depth coverage of research methods, as well as the complete treatment of grammar and usage, make an ancillary handbook unnecessary, a cost-savings enjoyed by students and teachers alike. 
*The 8th edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.
