The second edition of Writing with Sources is updated throughout, and includes new material on the roles sources play in argument, on assessing the reliability of sources, and on attitudes about writing that can lead to plagiarism.
"The best little book for college writers. Harvey understands the writer's position-and plight-when composing essays that must respond to texts yet make independent assertions. Writing with Sources not only provides clear rules of citation for papers in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, but it also shows how writers can incorporate and advance ideas learned from other writers, while avoiding the bad habits of composition that can lead to plagiarism. It's the one book to keep on your desk."
-David Gewanter, English Department, Georgetown University
"An important, much needed pedagogical tool, this short volume provides practical, easily implemented advice and guidelines to citing and acknowledging the sources for one's reports and arguments. Put in the hands of students as they enter university, it will serve them well throughout their undergraduate years and beyond."
-Ted Humphrey, Barrett Honors College, Arizona State University
Gordon Harvey is Senior Preceptor of Expository Writing, Harvard University.
