"Academic Writing" offers a guided process-writing course in the most common expository text types and genres, including research papers, that students need at university and in their future professional careers. In addition, one chapter is devoted to the problem of creating coherent texts and another to business correspondence, including job application letters. The third edition has been thoroughly revised. Over twenty essays and articles offer extensive reading practice. Close and guided reading of these texts will help students become better critical and analytical readers, which in turn will support their own writing. At the same time they will improve their general language proficiency in English. The book is informed by the insight that writing is a thinking tool; that writing can be a tool for language development, for critical thinking and, consequently, for learning in all disciplines.
