When Kate L. Turabian first put her famous guidelines to paper, she could hardly have imagined the world in which today鈥檚 students would be conducting research. Yet while the ways in which we research and compose papers may have changed, the fundamentals remain the same: writers need to have a strong research question, construct an evidence-based argument, cite their sources, and structure their work in a logical way. <i>A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations</i>鈥攁lso known as 鈥淭urabian鈥濃€攔emains one of the most popular books for writers because of its timeless focus on achieving these goals.<br /><br /><br /><br />This new edition filters decades of expertise into modern standards. While previous editions incorporated digital forms of research and writing, this edition goes even further to build information literacy, recognizing that most students will be doing their work largely or entirely online and on screens. Chapters include updated advice on finding, evaluating, and citing a wide range of digital sources and also recognize the evolving use of software for citation management, graphics, and paper format and submission. The ninth edition is fully aligned with the recently released <i>Chicago Manual of Style</i>, 17th edition, as well as with the latest edition of <i>The Craft of Research.</i><br /><br /><br /><br />Teachers and users of the previous editions will recognize the familiar three-part structure. Part 1 covers every step of the research and writing process, including drafting and revising. Part 2 offers a comprehensive guide to Chicago鈥檚 two methods of source citation: notes-bibliography and author-date. Part 3 gets into matters of editorial style and the correct way to present quotations and visual material. <i>聽A Manual for Writers</i> also covers an issue familiar to writers of all levels: how to conquer the fear of tackling a major writing project.<br /><br /><br /><br />Through eight decades and millions of copies, <i>A Manual for Writers</i> has helped generations shape their ideas into compelling research papers. This new edition will continue to be the gold standard for college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines.<br /><br />聽

Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there鈥檚 tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there鈥檚 Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures 鈥?including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.<br />Based on Louisa May Alcott鈥檚 childhood, this lively portrait of nineteenth-century family life possesses a lasting vitality that has endeared it to generations of readers.<br /><br />A wonderful story... As a child, I strongly identified with Jo because she is a writer. 鈥擩acqueline Wilson<br />The American female myth. 鈥擬adelon Bedell<br />It is an essential American novel, perhaps the essential American novel for girls鈥?Girls come to it on their own. 鈥擩ane Smiley<br />In 鈥淟ittle Women鈥?

Until now, there have been available only concise editions of Matthew Henry's Commentary for the Kindle. OSNOVA's Kindle edition includes the unabridged text of the entire six paper volumes incorporating an active table of contents, navigation between a quick sections, chapters and books, and a cross-reference system between the commentary and the included Bible (with Direct Verse Jump and Direct Verse Jump 2, see instructions in the book), which make it easy to locate any place within the Commentary or the Scriptures in seconds. The table of contents allows navigation to any chapter of the Scriptures, with the hyperlinked dot to the right of each chapter leading to the corresponding place in the Commentary. Each title and each verse number in the included Bible is hyperlinked to the corresponding passage in the Commentary, and each reference in the Commentary is hyperlinked to the corresponding passage in the Bible.<br /><br />General Description<br /><br />Matthew Henry's six-volume 'Exposition of the Old and New Testament' or Complete Bible Commentary has long been celebrated as the best of English commentaries of the Bible for devotional purposes. It provides an exhaustive verse by verse study of the Bible, covering the whole of the Old Testament and the New Testament.<br /><br />The Commentary was begun in November 1704. The first volume was published in 1708; that and four other volumes appeared in a uniform edition in 1710. Before his death Henry completed the Acts for an unpublished sixth volume. After his death the Epistles and Revelation were prepared by thirteen ministers, partly based upon notes taken by Henry's hearers. The complete edition was edited by George Burder and John Hughes and published in 1811 in 6 volumes. Henry's 'Exposition' has often been abridged. Now for the first time it is made available by OSNOVA in its full unabridged form to the Kindle users.<br /><br />Henry's commentaries are primarily exegetical, dealing with the Scripture text as presented, with his prime intention being explanation for practical and devotional purposes. The Commentary excels at practical application, displaying good sense, discrimination, high moral tone and simple piety, combined with the well-sustained flow of its English style.<br /><br />Famous evangelical Protestant preachers such as George Whitefield and Charles Spurgeon used and heartily commended the work, with Whitefield reading it through four times 鈥?the last time on his knees. Spurgeon stated, " Every minister ought to read it entirely and carefully through once at least."<br /><br />Please read the instructions at the beginning of the publication to learn how to easily navigate this complex publication.<br /><br />NOTE: Many features of this publication will not work on Kindle 1, software Kindles such as Kindles for PC, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android or Kindle Fire. This edition is not TTS(text-to-speech)-friendly due to the way TTS works on the Kindle.<br /><br />* * *<br /><br />
