The People and Promise of California - Paperback

ISBN: 9780321434890

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: LONGMAN], emThe People and Promise of California /emuses an exciting collection of readings focusing on the unique, diverse, and cutting edge culture of California to help students understand the strategies and skills of good writing. This inexpensive reader includes famous essayists as well as new, diverse voices whose work reflects both the culture, economics, and demographics of "the final frontier," as well as the intimate experiences of individuals coping with one of the world's most intense experiments in diversity. Challenging topics include everything from gang culture and casinos to labor's contributions and the various geographic regions that make up California-the deserts, mountains, coastline, and valleys, and the newly defined "Third California." This flexible text will prove useful not only in composition courses, but also in sociology, political science, cultural anthropology, and many other disciplines. Product Description emThe People and Promise of California /emuses an exciting collection of readings focusing on the unique, diverse, and cutting edge culture of California to help students understand the strategies and skills of good writing. Features + Benefits A wide range of topics from the California dream through the immigrant experience makes this text flexible for instructors and compelling for students. Voices range from the best-known California writers (Didion, Starr) to new voices, and a number of essays are exclusive to this text. A balance of long and short readings provides a range of good writing models. Two sets of questions end each chapter-one encouraging students to synthesize the readings with other public culture (film, music, online content) and the second asking students to synthesize readings within the chapter.
