Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415195608, Paperback)

Critical Reading and Writing is a fully introductory, interactive textbook that explores the power relations at work in and behind the texts we encounter in our everyday lives.
Using examples from numerous genres - such as popular fiction, advertisements and newspapers - this textbook examines the language choices a writer must make in structuring texts, representing the world and positioning the reader. Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, Critical Reading and Writing offers guidance on how to read texts critically and how to develop effective writing skills.
Features include:
* activities in analysis, writing and rewriting
* an appendix of comments on activities
* further reading sections at the end of each unit
* a glossary of linguistics terms
* suggestions for five extended writing projects.
Written by an experienced teacher, Critical Reading and Writing has multidisciplinary appeal but will be particularly relevant for use on introductory English and Communications courses.
