Review:

Newly revised to conform with the Chicago Manual of Style, Turabian's Manual for Writers provides comprehensive, detailed, superior guidance to writers of research papers. From "Parts of the Paper" (including the niceties of copyrights and dedications) to "Sample Layouts," everything to do with format is covered. Mechanics of style (abbreviations to quotations) are reviewed, there's help on tables and illustrations, and chapters on bibliographies, parenthetical references, note taking, and citations. There are suggestions for manuscript preparation, hints on word-processing software, and formatting for research papers' more complex features. When you're up to your eyebrows in research data, it's a vast relief to have quick, accessible, reliable answers to your questions of structure, scholarly propriety, and academic style. --Stephanie Gold

From Booklist:

A mainstay in high-school and college libraries for nearly 60 years, Turabian has now been updated to incorporate references to the fourteenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style [RBB O 1 93]. Founding author Turabian died in 1987; this edition was revised by John Grossman and Alice Bennett, who edited the most recent edition of The Manual of Style. The arrangement of the book remains the same. Chapters 13 and 14 show the ubiquity of computers. It is assumed that students now write their papers on a PC; typewriter users are referred back to the previous edition. The documentation chapters tell how to cite CD-ROM and online sources, and the bibliography at the end of the book has been updated. However, much of the book is unchanged. Librarians will want to see what kind of condition their 1987 edition of this book is in when deciding whether to purchase this new one. Sandy Whiteley
