"Like all writers, intellectuals need to say something new and
say it well. But unlike many other writers, what intellectuals have
to say is bound up with the books we are reading . . . and the
ideas of the people we are talking with."
What are the moves that an academic writer makes? How does
writing as an intellectual change the way we work from sources? In
Rewriting, a textbook for the undergraduate classroom,
Joseph Harris draws the college writing student away from static
ideas of thesis, support, and structure, and toward a more mature
and dynamic understanding. Harris wants college writers to think of
intellectual writing as an adaptive and social activity, and he
offers them a clear set of strategies-a set of moves-for
participating in it.
