Title: The Grammar of Raising and Control
Subtitle: A Course in Syntactic Argumentation
Written By: William D. Davies
Stanley Dubinsky
URL: http://blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=0631233016&site=1
Description:

The Grammar of Raising and Control surveys analyses across a range of
theoretical frameworks from Rosenbaum's classic Standard Theory analysis
(1967) to current proposals within the Minimalist Program, and provides
readers with a critical understanding of these, helping them in the process
to develop keen insights into the strengths and weaknesses of syntactic
arguments in general.

- Distils a very successful graduate course in syntax from two prominent
figures in the field, covering analyses from a range of theoretical frameworks.

- Provides readers with an understanding of the various perspectives
represented in generative syntax, using a particular class of grammatical
constructions as a means of examining the evolution of syntactic theory
over the last thirty years.

- Helps students to develop keen insights into the strengths and weaknesses
of syntactic arguments.

- Includes excerpts from six important works that allow students to
familiarize themselves with the original literature while also providing
discussion of the theoretical context in which they were written.
