This multicultural, thematic reader takes on thought-provoking, global issues. "The New World Reader" presents first-year writing students with 66 timely essays by established writers on the most significant issues of the post-September 11th world. Working with recently published selections from well-known writers, students will have the opportunity to consider such strategic questions as the changing face of America, the challenges and consequences of globalization, the just response to terror, the international digital revolution, and the fate of the global environment. Challenged by notable contemporary thinkers and writers, students will be encouraged - individually and as members of a community - to come to grips with a world that is now subject to complex transformations.
