This anthology, intended for college freshman composition courses, is organized around eight "domains," each a major contemporary concern. The domains are "hot issues", feminism, ecology, student life, work, leisure, the arts, and "cold continuing causes" (issues that, while not "hot," are still important). The contents of each domain include examples from six genres, or approaches: graphics, advertisements, informative press (including commitment, slanted language, and definition), humor, literature, and music. Most of the selection here date from the last five years. The anthology is based on the premises that by looking at several objects in juxtaposition, the creative mind often arrives at new insights, and that one's ideas on a given topic are in large part the results of inputs from many sources.
