Over the years, I have kept my old copy of the Random House Handbook. I am not aware how many institutions still use it, or whether the "Crews Handbook" is still recommended by anyone.

Few figures loom as large in European history as Frederick the Great. When he inherited the Prussian crown in 1740, he ruled over a kingdom of scattered territories, a minor Germanic backwater. By the end of his reign, the much larger and consolidated Prussia ranked among the continent’s great powers.

Flash_back
When I attended Cal in the Eighties, Frederick Crews was a larger than life figure. He was, it seemed, already at the end of his career. One had the sense that he felt a little out of place in the English department. As young English majors, we all had to labor through his Random House Handbook. I am not sure how many of my fellow students appreciated it. I did. It was clear, concise and comprehensive.

When I graduated in 1990 in German and English, I was happy that Professor Crews gave the Commencement Address to the Foreign Languages departments. The day before I attended the massive English Department graduation and was embarrassed by the speakers who all hinted at the coming PC onslaught which ravaged the Humanities in the Nineties. In comparison, Frederick Crews gave a witty, down-to-earth and inspiring speech to the Foreign Languages students. He spoke about coming to California as a young man and the promise it gave, he spoke funnily about commencement speeches ("here we embark together on the ship of life,etc."), and he discussed our experience as students at Cal. I loved him for such a wonderful speech!

Over the years, I have kept my old copy of the Random House Handbook. I am not aware how many institutions still use it, or whether the "Crews Handbook" is still recommended by anyone. But, as I teach Business Communications, I refer to it more than any other reference book - including whatever assigned textbook is being read by my students.

I hope others will use, as I have!

Great book to learn English grammar for, especially for someone with English as a second language program. It looks old and might have outdated examples in it, but it is a really good book to study and get your work done. Enjoyed this book tremendously and would recommend it to anyone.

I used this in the 1970s when teaching comp as a grad student at Berkeley, and where Crews was on the faculty. I have yet to find a better handbook. Though the humor of the examples is now out of date in some cases, the tone and clarity of the book have never been topped.

Most major publishers produce a writing handbook, typically oriented toward college compostion classes. Most of them are very good or better. But among this tough competition, this is the best of the bunch. I teach advanced writing skills to professionals, mostly lawyers, and tell them to buy this book right after Strunk & White and Garner's Modern American Usage. After using Crews's book they all agree. (If you're wondering about "But" in the third sentence, "Crews's" in the fifth, and the placement of the period in the last sentence, below, look them up; Crews is glad to help.)
I agree completely with the anonymous reviewer in "My teaching "bible."
An outstanding manual of style for writers of essays or books, fact or fiction; extensive; well-written; easy to follow; exercises; index
