Editorial Reviews

Review

"I appreciate the way the readings are in conversation with each other -- even the ones that are not a specific pro-con debate. Students can see links and ties across disciplines and boundaries.

-- Jamili Omar, Cy-Fair College

The Presence of Others : Voices and Images That Call for Response
by Andrea A. Lunsford (Editor), John J. Ruszkiewicz was use in my freshman English course. In the beginning I was not too enthusiastic about the book. It took some time to get used to. Now it has become part of my growing home library. It has great essays ranging from John Henry Newman to Bell Hooks. I love the diversity.Lunsford and Ruszkiewicz did a great job putting this book together. There are subjects that everyone can relate to. Since using the book in my English class I have become a both critical reader and thinker that John Henry Newman had a vision of.

I rented this product for my Freshmen English class. It is way cheaper to rent, and it looks brand new! There aren't even any "RENTED" stickers on the book. It is in perfect condition.

I bought this book my freshman year and now my brother uses it for his freshman year. Can't really say much about it since it was mandatory to have for English class. It did help me when writing my essays. I got good grades with the guidlines in here and now my brother uses for same purpose.

Was purchased for my daughters college class. It was an interesting read. She will purchase future books from Amazon as she found the books less expensive than other places.
