The Writing of Business sees writing as an essential tool for creating personal and organizational strategies for managing an increasingly complex workplace. To help students use their writing to attain these goals, the authors have employed a powerful heuristic: GRACE. GRACE represents five essential kinds of generative questions - Goals, Readers, Arguments, Conventions, and Expression - for analyzing a writing situation and generating specific questions leading to effective written documents. Grounded in rhetoric, The Writing of Business contextualizes traditional sentence and paragraph conventions within the realities of the business world, such as globalization, outsourcing, and constantly changing technology. A business writing text that is reader-friendly in both content and voice, The Writing of Business equips students for a radically changed workplace. This book presents a vision of writing as an activity that is central and essential to doing business in the 21st Century.

An invaluable handbook, How to Write Art History enables students to get the most from their art history course. In a clear and engaging style, Anne D'Alleva empowers readers to approach their coursework with confidence and energy. The book introduces two basic art historical methods – formal analysis and contextual analysis – and this second edition provides even more step-by-step guidance about how these methods can be used in class discussion and in writing essays and papers. The common strengths and weaknesses of an art history essay are highlighted by using real examples of written work, and at each stage of the writing process D'Alleva offers valuable advice on developing an argument convincingly. Providing a fascinating view of the study of art history within its historical context, this book will be particularly helpful for those considering a career in this rewarding discipline.
