Synopsis

Readings for the 21st Century Issues for Today's Students by William Vesterman

This composition reader invites students to consider themselves in the context of the new century-the academic issues, social problems, and popular culture that already define their generation and the issues and problems that their generation will have to face: from a new economy to a new technology and a new terrorism. The essays offer a lively mixture of lengths, styles, and points of view. The authors range from classic to contemporary figures, from Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Rachel Carson to Bill Gates, Neil Postman, Tipper Gore, and William Raspberry. From Tom Wolfe to Maureen Dowd, Amy Tan, and Susan Faludi. From Frank Zappa to Chuck D., from Natalie Angier to Annie Dillard, Nat Hentoff and Linda Chavez.
