In simple terms an essay can be defined as a write-up on a topic. Its length varies according to need and purpose-from a few hundred words-to a few pages. The style, therefore, may also vary from terse and pithy, as in a short composition, to descriptive as in a long composition. Various types of topics-social, economic, political, scientific, legal and literary are covered in a book on essays. In the present times there is a tendency to include current events in essay books because short to medium write-ups on various burning issues are required to be written in many competitive examinations. However, essays on general socio-economic problems are the favourites of essayists and paper setters of academic as well as competitive examinations. Several books on essays are available in the market. But the book Advanced Essays is different from similar other books because of its comprehensive coverage. It covers a wide range of topics and deals with each one of them analytically, giving latest facts and positions. The tone of each essay is suggestive, not critical. An attempt has been made to give the students sufficient material on a large variety of topics so that they are well-equipped to come out with flying colours in the examination they take.
