The Bedford Spotlight Reader Series is an exciting new line of single-theme readers, each featuring Bedford s trademark care and quality. The readers in the series collect carefully chosen readings sufficient for an entire writing course about 30 selections to allow instructors to provide carefully developed, high-quality instruction at an affordable price. Bedford Spotlight Readers are designed to help students make inquiries from multiple perspectives, opening up topics such as money, food, sustainability, and gender to critical analysis. The readers are flexibly arranged in thematic chapters, each focusing in depth on a different facet of the central topic. An Editorial Board of more than a dozen compositionists at schools focusing on specific themes have assisted in the development of the series."
