When first published in 1985, Elements of Argument changed the way that argument was taught in college composition courses through its pioneering emphasis on the easy-to-teach Toulmin model of argument. The book quickly became the best-seller in its market and has maintained its popularity with a mix of accessible instruction, lively examples, and compelling readings. Thorough but not intimidating, Elements of Argument presents everything students need to learn about, research, and write arguments. A new coauthor, Donna Haisty Winchell, draws on her own experience teaching with Elements of Argument to enhance the writing instruction and bring in a fresh group of readings and topics that will appeal to a new generation of students.
