Argument in America offers multi-sided dialogues on timeless issues fundamental to American culture and civic identity. The book introduces students to an historical dimension as well as contemporary perspectives from a wide range of authors writing in many genres: essays, speeches, poems, stories, and visual arguments. The final section of the anthology, Arguments on Argument, features several selections on the nature of argument itself. Helpful but unobtrusive editorial apparatus includes a brief general introduction, introductions to the seven sections, discussion questions, and headnotes for the selections, many of which explain how the selection contributes to the argumentative issue at hand.
