Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The Style Manual describes the Modern Language Association's current procedures for citing and documenting sources in scholarly writing. Though not as comprehensive as The Chicago Manual of Style , the book does give scholars a thorough explanation of one of the major styles of documentation used in the humanities. There is also information about publication, the mechanics of writing, manuscript preparation, and the use of abbreviations and proofreading symbols. Essential for academic reference collections. Cook addresses a wider audience of writers in academia, business, and the professions, giving specific advice on revising prose at the sentence level. Numerous examples and clear explanations (including a brief review of grammar) make the book a sophisticated guide for those who wish to polish their writing and avoid errors in syntax, punctuation, and usage. For academic and public libraries. Michael Hennessy, English Dept., Southwest Texas State Univ.
