For junior/senior-level courses in Writing-in-the-Disciplines or Writing-Across-the-Curriculum programs. This text provides social science majors with a systematic way of learning to write in their fields. It is based on the assumption that such writing is not a mechanical process, but a kind of rhetoric social scientists use to persuade each other of the validity of their research. Using both professional and student examples, detailed discussions and guidelines, and collaborative and individual exercises, the text shows students how to use the language of their fields to propose, report, and criticize their research.
