PREFACE

ASIDE from its primary purpose, as set forth in the definition of the term itself, the Argumentative Brief serves a distinctly disciplinary end. Experience in the college classroom, extending over nearly a score of years, has demonstrated to the compiler of the following pages that the analysis demanded by the process of brief-construction develops in a very high degree careful and logical methods of thought on the part of the student. To provide material suitable for exercise of this character and to set forth the principles underlying the brief as a form of composition, this work has been prepared.

Acknowledgment is hereby made to the publishers who have courteously allowed the use of copyrighted material; and also to various authors of textbooks on argumentation

particularly to Professors Baker and Foster, who have placed under deep obligations all subsequent writers on any branch of this extensive subject.
