THE MAKING OF ARGUMENTS
By John HAYS GARDINER, late of Harvard University A BRIEF course in argumentation to meet the needs of the future average citizen rather than of the few who go on to law or political life. The examples used throughout the book and the exercises and questions suggested for argument are drawn from matters in which young people from eighteen to twenty-two have a natural, lively interest and which they argue about in real life. The aim of the book is to develop habits of analysis and effective presentation of facts which will serve the student in the practical concerns of later life. 290 pages, $1.00.
(Revised and Enlarged Edition)
H. B. HUNTINGTON, Brown University This book holds an established place as one of the standard textbooks in the subject. Fundamental matters of analytical investigation, sifting of evidence, brief-drawing, and persuasive adaptation are clearly illustrated by numerous extracts and are made teachable by varied practical exercises. The book as a whole develops intellectual power and avoids that "predigested” argumentative material which enables a student easily to remember — and surely to forget — " how to argue.” 677 pages, $1.25.
By John M. BREWER, Harvard University This textbook treats oral English as a subject independent both of literature and of written composition. It furnishes the student brief directions, detailed exercises, and suggestive lists of topics of everyday interest which will provide material for doing with conscious direction of thought the things which unconsciously are done in the pursuit of every other study — arguing, explaining, and telling. It embodies the latest ideas in the teaching of this subject by substituting for imitation of masterpieces of eloquence a direct and effective way of speaking without unnecessary adornment, more fitted to be of practical use to the active man or woman of to-day. 396 pages, $1.00.
