9780155050150: A Practical Handbook for Writing in the Humanities

A PRACTICAL HANDBOOK FOR WRITING IN THE HUMANITIES is an inexpensive concise guide to composition for students in the humanities. This simple, straightforward guide to the structure and style of college writing is meant for students of Humanities instructors who require writing assignments but have little time to give formal instruction in composition.

About the Author:

Michael C. Milam received a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Indiana University, concentrating in literature and philosophy. He is a former Fulbright scholar and National Endowment for the Humanities fellow who has studied and taught in Western Europe and Russia. Dr. Milam has taught Humanities, literature, and composition at Indiana University, Tampa College, St. Petersburg College, and the University of South Florida, and does research in intellectual history and aesthetics.

Review:

"I LOVE this text, and want it immediately! It fills such a need for students, almost all of who struggle with writing papers in college. I have nothing but the highest praise for what this book accomplishes and achieves so effortlessly and with such fluidity."

"I think this handbook is fantastic because of the way rules are illustrated with excellent, specific examples. I would adopt this text in a minute because Professor Milam has put his finger on a very serious problem in the Humanities... I am constantly frustrated with my students' writing level and I try to help them improve. If I had a text like this one I would put it to very good use."

"I found myself wishing that my students had used this handbook before they wrote their papers, for it addresses many of the typical weaknesses that I saw in the papers."
