Summary
The authors identify the key rhetorical moves in academic writing, showing students how to frame their arguments in the larger context of what others have said and providing templates to help them make those moves. Because these moves are central across all disciplines, the book includes chapters on writing in the sciences, writing in the social sciences, and writing about literature

Demystifying academic conversation -- Entering the conversation -- They Say. They say: starting with what others are saying -- Her point is: the art of summarizing -- As he himself puts it: the art of quoting. -- I Say. Yes/no/okay, but: three ways to respond -- And yet: distinguishing what you say from what they say -- Skeptics may object: planting a naysayer in your text -- So what? Who cares? : saying why it matters. -- Tying it All Together. As a result: connecting the parts -- Ain't so/is not: academic writing doesn't always mean setting aside your own voice -- But don't get me wrong : the art of metacommentary -- He [says] contends: using the templates to revise. -- In Specific Academic Contexts. I take your point: entering class discussions -- IMHO: is digital communication good or bad-or both? -- What's motivating this writer? : reading for the conversation -- On closer examination: entering conversations about literature -- The data suggest: writing in the sciences -- Analyze this: writing in the social sciences. -- Readings. Don't blame the eater / David Zinczenko -- Hidden intellectualism / Gerald Graff -- Nuclear waste / Richard A. Muller -- The (futile) pursuit of the American dream / Barbara Ehrenreich -- Everything that rises must converge / Flannery O'Connor
