The New Composition by Logic, Revised Edition (Hardcover)

The New Composition by Logic, Revised Edition By Carolyn J. Moss, B.A., M.A., Ph.D., Sidney P. Moss Cover Image


English composition “ranks among the most important courses in the cur­riculum,” the authors note in their Preface to this new edition, a conviction evident both in the authors’ emphasis on methodology and in the renewed at­tention the subject is receiving in col­leges and universities today.

The book is a fresh version of a text that for nearly a decade has been widely adopted and much respected in the United Statesand abroad. As previoususers will know, it is self-contained, re­quiring no “reader,” and is sequential in exposition, one chapter deriving from another with logical inevitability, thus rendering a syllabus unnecessary. In addition, it requires only session-by-session assignments, thereby simpli­fying the planning of its use as a text.

The revised edition continues the original organization: the book is di­vided into two major parts—(1) The Organization of Themes and (2) The Development of Paragraphs and the Natureof Evidence. New examplesand exercises have been added, and scrupu­lous revision has been made to clarify points which may have been in the slightest degree ambiguous in the previous version.
