A Book of Essays Revised 25th Edition 2017
This new edition comes in a new size, and has been revised and
modified to incorporate fresh facts and figures,
even as obsolete information has been discarded.
In the process, several essays have been rewritten.
Several new topics have been added; there is also
a new set of topics on issues of current importance.
For the rest, the book covers a wide range of
topics as well as styles, and acquaints the reader with
the nuances of writing an essay.
A special feature of the book is the section
containing a large selection of quotations from
various famous people and their works. These have
been classified alphabetically by subject to allow
easy access. They will be of help to students—if
used with caution, in context and with the full understanding
of the meaning.
The earlier editions of this book have met with
wide appreciation and we hope readers find this
new edition even more intellectually stimulating.
