Book Description

11 April 1996 0226816273 978-0226816272 6th Revised edition
For close to 60 years, Kate L. Turabian's "Manual for Writers" has offered detailed guidance to authors of research papers - term papers, theses and dissertations. Now the editors of "The Chicago Manual of Style" have revised Turabian's work to bring the details of style into conformity with the 14th edition of "The Chicago Manual". This edition of Turabian also reflects the way students work today, taking into account the role of personal computers in the preparation and presentation of their papers. The familiar organization of this popular book remains largely unchanged. Chapter one describes the parts of a long formal paper. Chapters two-five introduce the mechanics of writing style, from abbreviations to quotations. Chapters six and seven show how to prepare and refer to tables and illustrations. The section on documentation, chapters eight-twelve, describes two of the most commonly used systems of citation; these chapters provide many examples including guidance on how to cite electronic documents. Chapter 13, on manuscript preparation, shows how to take advantage of word processing software to present the elements of a paper clearly and effectively. Chapter 14 offers more than 24 sample pages illustrating ways of formatting some of the complex features found in many research papers.

Format:Paperback
I have been using the Terabian style book for about ten years. Though Kate Terabian passed away several years ago, her legacy lives on in her style book. The book is well-organized, and covers every question I have ever had regarding punctuation, formatting, and style. The proliferation of examples is what makes it easy to use. I would recommend it, especially for serious academic writers, both students and teachers. The only caution I have is that a casual writer may find it too technical.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any serious graduate student. 20 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As a new graduate student I found myself overwhelmed by the requirements of the standard research paper. Having little knowledge of the proper way to reference and list bibliographies, I went to the local library for help. The librarian suggested Turabian's book. Needless to say I took her advice and brought the book home with me. I found this book to be an invaluable tool. So much in-fact that I decided to purchase a copy for myself. No student library is complete without this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an absolutely essential book. 23 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Turabian's book has been an essential item on my reference shelf for the past fifteen years. It answers the most frequently asked questions about academic writing, but is much easier to consult than the weightier Chicago Manual of Style.

This is a must for the college student or research paper writer. It gives line by line examples for how to correctly include footnotes, endnotes, etc. into your paper. I recommend it to all my students.

4.0 out of 5 stars Always a very useful reference tool, but needs to be updated 30 April 2000
By Francoise Labrique - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A must have for all college and graduate students. Turabian answers all questions regarding proper citation, organization, and formatting. The only downside is that research has changed dramatically since this issue was published and the book is not too helpful in dealing with electronic/internet resources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Commendable Book for Research Writers 24 Jan 2007
By Elijah Chingosho - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have used this book in my project and dissertation research as well as writing papers and the book met all my needs. I found the book to contain detailed guidelines that facilitated my writing exercises, including paper layouts, formatting, citing references, manuscript preparation, advice on word-processing software, among several other tips and hints. The book is suitable for those undertaking undergraduate or postgraduate research studies or anyone wishing to produce a high quality piece of writing.

Although there is room for updating the book to meet the latest technological developments, this does not detract from the fact that this is one of the best books around on guidance on writing papers, theses and dissertations. The book is highly recommended for those writing academic or professional papers and projects, including publishing articles in journals and periodicals.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations 20 Oct 2005
By Angelo J. Spadaro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The text is exactly what it claims to be. I purchased this book for a course in Historical Methods and I've used it to the point of needing a second copy. This manual is so incredibly detailed and concise that I wouldn't think of writing a paper (in any course or context) without it! I love it, it gives detailed instructions and examples for just about every scenario one might stumble upon in writing, whether it be research or not. I'd definately recommend this manual to anyone, academic, professional, or anyone else; who writes in any form.
