Known for its upbeat approach, MULTITUDE brings together a diverse spectrum of voices and issues that reflect our society.

The second edition features 40% new selections and more writing activities and assignments that incorporate collaboration and research.

From the Publisher:

1. Without trivializing the issues of diversity or glossing over problems, MULTITUDE focuses on the positive nature of the experience of diversity, and balances serious or tragic readings with positive, life-affirming ones that assert the common humanity we all share.

2. Features 84 outstanding selections, both classic and contemporary, from many cultures both within the United States and other countries to provide contrasting perspectives that help students examine and understand our similarities and our differences.

3. Provides extensive teaching apparatus with each selection including prereading questions geared to different learning styles, biographical headnotes to aid the studentÆs understanding of the writerÆs background, and a variety of analysis questions and writing assignments that make strong reading/writing connections and challenge students to think critically.

4. Although thematically arranged, selections were carefully chosen to cover all the rhetorical modes, from narration to argument. An alternate table of contents is provided.
