The Bedford Handbook (Seventh Edition) The Bedford Handbook, Seventh Edition
As always, The Bedford Handbook works both as a classroom text and as a reference students can use on their own. Now with the strongest coverage of research writing in a full-sized handbook, the seventh edition helps students meet one of the core challenges of academic writing: maintaining their own voice while writing from sources. Newly redesigned and including innovative tips from writing tutors, The Bedford Handbook is still easy to use and easy to understand.
