Summary

For close to sixty years Kate L. Turabian'sManual for Writershas offered comprehensive and detailed guidance to authors of research papersterm papers, theses, and dissertations. Now the editors ofThe Chicago Manual of Stylehave revised Turabian'sManualto bring the details of style into conformity with the fourteenth edition ofThe Chicago Manual. This new edition ofTurabianalso 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 1 describes the parts of a long formal paper. Chapters 2-5 introduce the mechanics of writing style, from abbreviations to quotations. Chapters 6 and 7 show how to prepare and refer to tables and illustrations. The section on documentation, chapters 8-12, 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 two dozen sample pages illustrating ways of formatting some of the complex features found in many research papers.Authoritative, comprehensive, easy to use, and filled with good sense, this new edition will be the standard for yet another generation of students and their teachers.Kate Turabian (1893-1987) was dissertation secretary at the University of Chicago from 1930 to 1958. This manual and herStudent's Guide for Writing College Papersmade her name so well known that she has become "part of the folklore of American higher education" (Quill and Scroll).
