by William Strunk, Jr. - Bartleby.com
Asserting that one must first know the rules to break them, this classic reference book is a must-have for any student and conscientious writer. Intended for use in which the practice of composition is combined with the study of literature.
by Charles Bazerman - Parlor Press
This volume draws on work from the social sciences -- and in particular sociocultural psychology, phenomenological sociology, and the pragmatic tradition of social science -- to reconceive rhetoric around the problems of written communication.
by L. Josephine Bridgart - The Writer's Digest
The purpose is to induce the new writer to look at his profession in a business-like way and to go to work with his business sense fully awake. The book also seeks to answer some specific questions which usually rise up to vex the new writer.
by Richard Mitchell - Little, Brown
Author takes examples of bad writing and rips them to shreds. These mistakes are revelations about the mind that wrote them. The examples of bad writing that come from educators are given special attention. Mitchell's first book is also his best.
