***UPLOADERS NOTES*** As the commercial copy below reads, the Diana Hacker Guide is the most commonly used

writers reference handbook in the United States. This specific addition is the MLA (Modern Language Association) seventh edition, published in 2011. Odds a re, anyone currently attending college, or who has done so in the past 25 years, was required to purchase a copy of this writer's guide. As an instructor of dev elopmental writing at a local community college, this textbook is not only REQUI RED, it is that rarest of all possible things - a legitimately useful and even i ndispensable college textbook. Any writer of the English language, no matter wha t their level of development, either has or should have a copy of this guide. Th e reason for the unusually large size of the PDF is that I have scanned it in fu ll color at high resolution. This is because a great deal of the content depends on multiple color markings to make its various points. I am choosing to make it available as a torrent because (at my local community college, anyway) the inco mpetence and malfeasance of our bookstore has made it increasingly difficult for financial aid students to get their hands on this textbook before the semester is half over. I have never felt any moral qualm about any of the myriad and dive rse media that I have uploaded as a pirate, but the Bedford St. Martin's publish ing company has done such an incredible job with this invaluable book (not to me ntion its supplemental workbooks and free online exercises), that I am quite loa the to deprive that wonderful company of even a single penny. I encourage anyone reading this to order supplemental materials and or to pay the online fee at th e Bedford St. Martin website for additional access. Furthermore, I have uploaded the INSTRUCTORS edition, which offers additional in sight into how to use and implement these materials. I realize that almost nobod y reading this is likely to be an instructor of English at the collegiate level, but any homeschooling parent, advanced high school student, or someone who eith er is or knows a learner with ESL (English as second language) difficulties lear ning written English, will be able to make great use of this book. This is very probably the single most useful thing I have uploaded to the Pirate Bay in three years of torrenting. It is my hope and wish that many, many of you find this PD F to be of great use.
