THIS TITLE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE 2016 MLA UPDATES! Our editorial team has updated this text based on content from The MLA Handbook, 8th Edition. Browse our catalog or contact your representative for a full listing of updated titles and packages, or to request a custom ISBN. In a striking full-color visual format, The Bedford Book of Genres collects compelling examples that tell stories, report information, and persuade their audiences and then invites students to unpack how they work in order to experiment with their own compositions—not only through writing, but through photography, sketching, audio recording, and other creative forms. The Guide presents a simple rhetorical framework for reading in any genre and supports students through every step of the composing process, from finding a topic and sources to choosing a genre, presenting your work, and creating an author’s statement about your composing choices. Guided Readings—in print and e-Pages—map out the rhetorical situation and conventions of common public and academic genres, while Guided Process sections follow the decisions that 5 real students made as they worked in multiple genres and media. With 16 topic clusters and a range of readings from short visual arguments to longer, more complex pieces, the Reader gives students a wealth of sources, models, and inspiration for their own compositions.

With a concrete, accessible approach to teaching writing with a purpose, Joining the Conversation helps your students become active participants in the exchange of ideas—with their peers, in academic communities, and in the world. Every chapter integrates advice about using technology that will help students build on the digital skills and genre awareness they already have in order to read, write, research, and respond in academic conversations. New e-Pages feature engaging selections in a range of academic and public genres, from literacy narratives and blogs to infographics and online reviews, bringing to life some of the topics students care about most. Choose Joining the Conversation with a new handbook section written by The Atlantic’s Barbara Wallraff, or add a Bedford Select e-Book to Go for even more readings. As accessible and student-friendly as the successful first edition, Joining the Conversation helps student writers gain a better understanding of—and confidence in—their own writing processes.

'Nackt' war erst der Anfang - jetzt kommt die Fortsetzung! David Sedaris schreibt hier seinen mit dem Erfolgstitel 'Nackt' begonnenen 'Roman in autobiographischen Geschichten' fort. Noch einmal wirft der Autor einen Blick zurück in die Kindheit. Wir erleben Davids Vater und dessen Jazz-Leidenschaft, gehen mit Klein David zur Logopädin, begleiten den Kunststudenten David zum ersten Mal in den Aktsaal und beobachten, wie aus David 'Mr. Sedaris' wird. David Sedaris, geboren 1956 in Johnson City, New York, aufgewachsen in Raleigh, North Carolina, lebt abwechselnd in England und den USA. Er schreibt u. a. für 'The New York Times', 'The New Yorker' und 'Esquire'. Mit seinen Büchern 'Naked', 'Fuselfieber', 'Ich ein Tag sprechen hübsch' und 'Schöner wird's nicht' wurde er zum Bestsellerautor. Zuletzt erschien im Blessing Verlag 'Das Leben ist kein Streichelzoo. Fiese Fabeln' (2011).

Wo immer die Frauen der "Gulabi Gang", der "pinkfarbenen Bande", in Aktion treten, sind sie eine eindrucksvolle Erscheinung mit ihren leuchtenden Saris – und den Bambusstöcken, die sie, wenn nötig, auch einsetzen. Sie wehren sich gegen die massive Gewalt, der Frauen in Indien oft ausgesetzt sind – im privaten wie im öffentlichen Raum. Gründerin und Anführerin der über 20.000 Mitglieder zählenden Selbstschutzgruppe ist Sampat Pal, Ende vierzig, charismatisch und unerschrocken. Fesselnd wie ein Roman erzählt Amana Fontanella-Khan die faszinierende Geschichte dieser unkonventionellen Frau und ihrer Gang.

Entsage dem Getümmel, zieh' den Fernsehstecker, kündige deinem Internetprovider, stell' das Radio aus ... reise weniger, kauf' weniger Plunder, meide das Einkaufszentrum, schalte den Anrufbeantworter ab, wirf dein Handy weg, vereinfache dein Leben ... Diese Botschaft vermitteln der Wirtschaftsprofessor Thomas H. Naylor, der Kulturkritiker John de Graaf und der Umweltexperte David Wann auf unterhaltsame Weise, indem sie Ursachen und Wirkung des Konsumverhaltens als Krankheit (eben Affluenza) mit vielfältigen Symptomen (Stress, Überschuldung, Umweltverschmutzung, Bindungsverlust etc.) beschreiben. Basierend auf einem Dokumentarfilm im staatlichen Fernsehen der USA von 1997, werden die materiellen, psychischen und ökologischen Kosten unserer 'Überflussgesellschaft' belegt und Gegenstrategien (Therapien) entwickelt, wie man sich als Individuum dem Konsumdruck entziehen kann. Ein radikaler Ansatz zu einer anderen Lebensqualität, der manchen Lesern weltfremd, anderen doch recht lebensnah vorkommen wird.
