About the Author:

Stanley Chodorow is Professor Emeritus of History, University of California, San Diego. He has won four teaching awards and continues to teach undergraduates.

Review:

Writing a successful research paper is not easy, but Stanley Chodorow's book is so lucid and well organized that, with it as an aid, students will find the process less daunting--and perhaps even satisfying. The sixth chapter, on using evidence, is the best and most helpful thing I've ever read on that crucial topic. --Al Filreis, Kelly Professor of English, Faculty Director of the Kelly Writers House, and Director of the Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing, University of Pennsylvania



From freshman theme to graduate thesis, the research paper is a complex assignment. This readable and engaging book guides students through the process of producing one, explaining not only how to approach each step along the way but also how sound execution of each step contributes to a successful outcome. Its clear organization allows students either to dip into the book as needed or read it cover to cover. --Carolyn Lougee Chappell, Frances and Charles Field Professor in History, Martin Family Fellow in Undergraduate Education, and Director of Structured Liberal Education, Stanford University



At last!--a short and snappy book on how to approach writing research papers. This volume is a welcome alternative to the thick 'how-to' books that stress mechanics. Chodorow helps one think through the process of crafting a research paper. All else follows thereafter. --Carol DeBoer-Langworthy, Department of English, Brown University
