Mirroring the chronology of the U.S. history survey, each of the main chapters employs a single type of source — from personal letters to political cartoons — while focusing on an intriguing historical episode such as the Cherokee Removal or the 1894 Pullman Strike. A new capstone chapter in each volume prompts students to synthesize information on a single topic from a variety of source types. The wide range of topics and sources across 28 chapters — 6 of them new — provide students with all they need to become fully engaged with America’s history.

When it was first published twenty years ago, The Bedford Guide for College Writers brought a lively and innovative new approach to the teaching of writing. Since that time, authors X. J. and Dorothy M. Kennedy have won praise for their friendly tone and their view, apparent on every page of the text, that writing is the "usually surprising, often rewarding art of thinking while working with language." More recently, experienced teacher and writer Marcia F. Muth joined the author team, adding more practical advice to help all students — even those underprepared for college work — become successful academic writers. While retaining the highly praised "Kennedy touch," The Bedford Guide continues to evolve to meet classroom needs. The new edition does even more to build essential academic writing skills, with expanded coverage of audience analysis, source-based writing, argumentation and reasoning, and more.

From memes to resumes, fairy tales to researched arguments, in a striking full-color visual design, The Bedford Book of Genres invites students to unpack how genres work in order to experiment with their own compositions. After capturing the imagination of instructors and students in its successful first edition, the second edition incorporates extensive reviewer feedback to better teach students the rhetorical analysis skills they need to read and compose in any situation. To start the text, the Guide now includes a new Part One that lays out the book's key concepts--rhetorical situation, the elements of a genre, and multimodal composing--and a substantially revised Part Two with examples arranged by academic, workplace, and public contexts. Throughout the text, Guided Readings provide opportunities to analyze the rhetorical situations and conventions of common public and academic genres, while Guided Process sections follow the decisions that five real students made as they worked in multiple genres and media. With a range of readings from short visual arguments to longer, more complex pieces, the Reader gives students a wealth of sources, models, and inspiration for their own compositions. Now available with Launchpad for The Bedford Book of Genres, the second edition offers a compelling digital option with a complete, interactive, assignable e-book.
