product image
Price
42.00 BBD

Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott is one of the Caribbean's most famous writers. His unique voice in poetry, drama and criticism is shaped by his position at the crossroads between Caribbean, British and American culture and by his interest in hybrid identities and diaspora. Edward Baugh's Derek Walcott analyses and evaluates Walcott's entire career over the last fifty years. Baugh guides the reader through the continuities and differences of theme and style in Walcott's poems and plays. Walcott is an avowedly Caribbean writer, acutely conscious of his culture and colonial heritage, but he has also made a lasting contribution to the way we read and value the western literary tradition. This comprehensive survey considers each of Walcott's published books, offering a guide for students, scholars and readers of Walcott. Students of Caribbean and postcolonial studies will find this a perfect introduction to this important writer.

Reflecting a unique collaboration between a distinguished teacher and a practicing technical writer, Technical Communication: Strategies for College and the Workplace prepares students to communicate effectively in college and on the job. Technical Communication is written for college students, regardless of their majors, who want to sharpen their communication skills and their knowledge of a wide range of technical documents. Acknowledging that students are soon to join the workforce, Jones and Lane place special emphasis on job-related topics: the job search itself, electronic communication, collaboration and teamwork, peer review, online publication, professional development, and ethics and professionalism. Coverage of the job search includes detailed discussions of job correspondence, resumes, portfolios, interviewing, professional organizations and meetings, online forums, conferences, and opportunities for continuing education. Throughout the text, the authors' discussions are accompanied by "sidebars" presenting the personal observations and profiles of actual technical professionals working in a variety of industries and job positions: real people talking about real jobs and the skills necessary to do those jobs successfully.

For one-semester freshman/sophomore-level courses in Technical Writing; and an excellent reference for any course that requires technical writing.Using a reader-friendly approach that is incremental and cumulative, this short, uncluttered guide to technical writing shows students how to take the structures, patterns, and strategies of writing learned in a Basic Composition course (summary, process, analysis, and persuasion) and apply them in different kinds of technical documents. Direct practical explanations, copious real-world examples, and a variety of "role-playing" exercises lead students through the process of document production and assessment--or what the author calls "transactional" writing: getting another person to read one's material, presenting such material clearly and accurately, and adhering to standards of format acceptable in the field. Unlike most other texts (which focus on the writing needs in the executive domain of the major corporation only), this guide covers a variety of non-corporate working environments that also require skill in technical communications (e.g., social service agencies, institutions, and small businesses).
