A complete guide to working with sources

Covering every step of research, writing, and documentation, Writing from Sources provides a complete guide to source-based writing. The book builds from fundamental skills -- such as annotating a passage -- to more demanding ones such as integrating sources smoothly into an original argument. Examples, exercises, and guidance throughout help students gain confidence with essential concepts, while numerous readings drawn from a variety of sources provide models and practice in every skill.
“A well written, easily accessible, and solidly thorough introduction to the most fundamental and essential aspects of the academic research process.”
