Description

The Introduction explains the key premises of the textbook, including the importance of understanding the writing of argumentative essays as a process and the simple rhetorical methods upon which the book relies and reassuring them that the ways in which the book will encourage them to achieve the circular and reiterative structure that characterises the best argumentative essays will not require wholesale changes to their current methods of writing as long, that is, they are willing to commit themselves to revising their initial drafts.
