Training in public speaking is not a matter of externals--primarily; it is not a matter of imitation--fundamentally; it is not a matter of conformity to standards--at all. Public speaking is public utterance, public issuance, of the man himself; therefore the first thing both in time and in importance is that the man should be and think and feel things that are worthy of being given forth. Unless there be something of value within, no tricks of training can ever make of the talker anything more than a machine--albeit a highly perfected machine--for the delivery of other men's goods. So self-development is fundamental in our plan.

American Rhetorical Discourse, Third Edition continues to build on the success of previous editions. This expanded collection reflects the diversity, significance, and method of speakers throughout American history by illuminating the evolution and accomplishment of rhetorical practice in American society. Rhetorical discourse engages the concerns that define public life, revealing a record of responses to the American experience that enrich the possibilities for future rhetoric. The variety of speakers in this volume emulates a spectrum of achievement and influence throughout American discourse. Each of the discourses presented in this distinguished collection is preceded by an informative and provocative commentary. These commentaries provide biographical information on the speaker, locate the speech in its historical time, and sketch the rhetorical situation to set the speech into its historical context. By highlighting the content of individual discourses, each commentary creates a solid basis for students to enlarge their understanding of history, broaden their perspective on the importance of the rhetorical moment, and improve their own rhetorical skills. The combination of commentary and speech provides an opportunity to explore a more sensitive analysis of a discourse, engaging and connecting the reader to the power and momentum of rhetoric.

Biology focuses on evolution as a unifying theme. In revising the text, McGraw-Hill consulted with numerous users, noted experts and professors in the field. Biology is distinguished from other texts by its strong emphasis on natural selection and the evolutionary process that explains biodiversity. The new 8th edition continues that tradition and advances into modern biology by featuring the latest in cutting edge content reflective of the rapid advances in biology. That same modern perspective was brought into the completely new art program offering readers a dynamic, realistic, and accurate, visual program. Entirely NEW Visual Program! The entire art program was redone involving a variety of specialists, artists, and medical illustrators who worked very closely with the author team to provide a phenomenal visual program for readers. This new art program focuses on providing images that focus on difficult concepts and provide a clear, consistent, accurate and easy-to-follow visual explanation. Experimental Focus -- Another theme of Biology is that knowledge arises from experimental work that moves us forward. The use of historical and experimental approaches throughout allow the student to not only see where the field is now, but more importantly, how we arrived there. The authors have tried to keep as much historical context as possible and provide information within an experimental framework throughout the text. Strengthened Evolutionary Emphasis -- From the inception of Biology, evolution has been the underlying theme of the text. The Eighth edition has been written with an even greater focus on evolution, with a significant increase of coverage at the molecular level, a good example is the two new chapters dedicated to molecular evolution. This emphasis creates more depth, balancing the amount of evolutionary coverage throughout. Includes print student edition

From "America's nerviest journalist" (Newsweek)--a breath-taking epic, a magnificent adventure story, and an investigation into the true heroism and courage of the first Americans to conquer space. "Tom Wolfe at his very best" (The New York Times Book Review) Millions of words have poured forth about man's trip to the moon, but until now few people have had a sense of the most engrossing side of the adventure; namely, what went on in the minds of the astronauts themselves - in space, on the moon, and even during certain odysseys on earth. It is this, the inner life of the astronauts, that Tom Wolfe describes with his almost uncanny empathetic powers, that made The Right Stuff a classic.
