    "They Say/I Say" is the best-selling book that demystifies academic writing.
    This book identifies the key rhetorical moves in academic writing. It shows students how to frame their arguments as a response to what others have said and provides templates to help them start making the moves. The fourth edition features many new examples from academic writing, a new chapter on Entering Online Discussions, and a thoroughly updated chapter on Writing in the Social Sciences. Finally, two new readings provide current examples of the rhetorical moves in action. (Publisher)
