Janet Giltrow's Academic Writing has been widely acclaimed in all its editions as a superb introduction for student readers. Giltrow draws meaningfully on theory, especially genre theory, while using specific texts to keep the discussion grounded in the particular. This new edition has been revised throughout and contains many new exercises, updated examples, a new section on research proposals, and wider disciplinary coverage.
