The authors identify the key rhetorical moves in academic writing, showing students how to frame their arguments in the larger context of what others have said and providing templates to help them make those moves. Because these moves are central across all disciplines, the book includes chapters on writing in the sciences, writing in the social sciences, and writing about literature.
