The Craft of Argument: Concise a clear and brief argument rhetoric written by the authors of such successful composition titles as Style: Ten Lessons in Clarity and Grace (AWL) and The Craft of Research (Chicago UP), and based on the highly acclaimedThe Craft of Argument, Second Edition.
Presenting a revised version of the Toulmin model, The Craft of Argument, Concise offers what reviewers have called one of the most accessible and teachable presentations of Toulmin available. Focusing on problem finding and problem solving as the heart of planning, drafting, and revising written arguments, the first 11 chapters explain the nature of argument, how to develop your argument, and how to think about argument, using the revised Toulmin model. Chapters 12 and 13 discuss the language of argument, including a discussion on some of the basic elements of style.
