Reviews

"A mainstay in high-school and college libraries."--Praise for a previous edition "Booklist "
"This definitive handbook supplies information on about everything any student or teacher may desire to know concerning paper writing."--Praise for a previous edition "Quill and Scroll "
"Kate L. Turabian was our trusted guide and mentor, the absolute authority, the one who knew all there was to know about the strange world of proper term papers. . . . To write a term paper without a well-worn copy of Turabian handy was unthinkable. Our writing on term papers might be weak, our research haphazard, our insights sophomoric, but, thanks to Kate L. Turabian, our footnotes could always be absolutely flawless."--Praise for a previous edition "Seattle Post-Intelligencer "
"Without doubt, for anyone interested in learning about research--what it is, where one goes to pursue it, how to do it, what it entails and means, why it is important (now more so than ever before)--A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers is the place to begin. It will likely show people new to the field a way forward and offer experienced researchers the means to test established modes of operation. This book will not fail you, today or tomorrow, at home or in the library. Look for it at a bookstore near you or online."--Thomas R. Claire "Publishing Research Quarterly "
"Turabian's A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations continues a tradition of providing one of the best interpretations of The Chicago Manual of Style for higher education students and researchers in this ninth edition. The writing style is clear and easy to read, with examples illustrating proper formatting of items."--Cynthia Goode "American Reference Books Annual "
