From the Preface of this 544 page book: "[This book] is a compact collection of classic and contemporary essays, most of which have already proven popular in hundreds of classrooms and with thousands of students. Learning how to read good writing effectively is crucial to learning how to write and think critically - and '50 Essays' is full of exceptional prose and many opportunities to practice reading, thinking, and writing about it. [This book] includes a core of classic essays by Maya Angelou, E.B. White, Malcolm X, and more, accompanied by fresh recent selections by David Sedaris, Eric Liu and more. For such a compact volume, '50 Essays' represents an extraordinary diversity of voices and genres - from polemical exhortations to personal narratives, from speeches to meditations, from nuanced arguments to humorous articles. Of varied length and complexity, the essays should stimulate ideas for students' own writing as they provide models for rhetorical analysis." Other authors include: Sherman Alexie, Natalie Angier, Gloria Anzaldua, Barbara Kazear Ascher, James Baldwin, Dave Barry, Susan Bordo, Bill Bryson, William F. Buckley, Jr., Stephen L. Carter, Judith Ortiz Cofer, Bernard Cooper, Joan Didion, Annie Dillard, Frederick Douglas, Barbara Ehrenreich, Lars Eighner, Stepanie Ericsson, Stephen Jay Gould, Vicki Hearne, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Maxine Hong Kingston, Nancy Mairs, N. Scott Momaday, Bharati Mukherjee, George Orwell, Plato, Richard Rodriguez, Mike Ros, Edward Said, Scott Russell Sanders, Peter Singer, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Brent Staples, Jonathan Swift, Amy Tan, Henry David Thoreau, Sojourner Truth, Sarah Vowell, Alice Walker, Marie Winn, and Virginia Woolf.
