WRITING: A MANUAL FOR THE DIGITAL AGE, BRIEF 2nd Edition, is the rhetorical handbook for composing in the 21st century. Blakesley and Hoogeveen place students' writing front and center with an innovative page format that keeps students' attention focused on their own writing and on activities, checklists, projects, and visual aids that help them write. The page design and innovative visuals make information about writing, reading, research, documentation, technology, and grammar easy for students to access and understand. To accomplish their writing tasks, students are taught to ground their rhetorical decisions in the specific context in which they are writing. Because writing and reading occur both in print and online, WRITING: A MANUAL FOR THE DIGITAL AGE, BRIEF 2nd Edition, prepares students to work with images, audio, video, and print. Technology Toolbox features throughout, as well as two dedicated parts of the book (Parts 6 and 7), teach students how to compose with technology intelligently. A new chapter on Writing in Online Courses, the first of its kind in a handbook, will guide students in addressing this new but increasingly common context for writing.

Eine ungewöhnliche Familienchronik. »Liebeszauber« ist die Geschichte der Kashpaws und der Lamartines, zweier Familien, deren Schicksal unauflösbar miteinander verknüpft ist. Sie sind Nachfahren der Ojibwe-Indianer und Überlebende einer rauen Welt. Zwischen Tradition und Moderne, Abenteuerlust und Heimatverbundenheit erzählen die einzelnen Familienmitglieder mal unerbittlich und düster, mal humorvoll und lakonisch ihre Geschichten. Eine Mischung, die Louise Erdrichs Debütroman „schon nach wenigen Seiten unwiderstehlich“ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) macht. »Es gibt kaum eine so gefühlvolle und zugleich scharfsinnige Autorin wie Louise Erdrich.« Anne Tyler. »Nur die Schönheit dieses Romans rettet uns davor, von seiner gewaltige Kraft vollkommen erschüttert zu werden.« Toni Morrison.
