The Brief Bedford Reader by The first Bedford title ever published, The Brief Bedford Reader continues to make its mark. One of the most popular composition readers on the market, it combines timeless readings with the leading voices of our time. It takes a practical and flexible approach to the rhetorical methods, focusing on their uses in varied writing situations. The unique "Writers on Writing" feature connects reflections from professional writers with point-of-need advice for student writers, and the Kennedys' proven approach to instruction helps students connect critical reading to academic writing. The fourteenth edition has been thoroughly revised with engaging new readings by remarkable and diverse writers, a stronger foundation in reading and writing, and new graphic organizers to visually outline how to use each method.
