Editorial Reviews

Review

"Madsen's book should be welcome both to graduate students about to undertake dissertations and to faculty needing to learn the role of thesis adviser. . . . Madsen tells how to propose, outline, write, defAnd, and possibly publish a dissertation, information which should save graduate students years, pain, and money."

From the Back Cover

"Should save graduate students years, pain, and money. Madsen's book should be welcome both to graduate students about to undertake dissertations and to faculty needing to learn the role of thesis adviser. . . . Here one learns about long-term planning, avoiding self-defeating strategies, and negotiating with advisers. Model papers, shown at various stages of planning and development, clarify the steps. Madsen tells how to propose, outline, write, defend, and possibly publish a dissertation, information which should save graduate students years, pain, and money."

—Library Journal

Revised and updated to cover the increasing use of computers in research and writing, this start-to-finish guide to dissertations and theses is available for the first time in paperback. Drawing on more than twenty-five years of experience in advising graduate students, David Madsen provides a practical resource for thesis writers in all fields of study, including the liberal arts, social and behavioral sciences, and natural sciences.

Offering a comprehensive source of assistance, Madsen goes beyond other thesis guides—from topic selection and proposal, through the research and writing processes to the defense and subsequent presentation to professional audiences. With the help of many detailed examples, the author shows how each step can be confronted and completed efficiently and in good time. And he explains how to avoid the pitfalls of endless—and often needless—research and how to devise and adhere to a realistic timetable for completion.

The author refers to the "microcomputer" and suggests you consider purchasing a modem and getting to know your library's card catalog. Sure, it's always good to choose the right adviser, but any book can tell you that. Get something more recent.

As someone who works privately with students, helping them with dissertations and theses, I highly recommend this book. When students call me in regard to assistance with their dissertation or thesis, I recommend that they buy this book and use it as an ongoing reference. As the title states, the information contained in this book anticipates and answers many of the questions that students have about the dissertation process, from proposal to completion. It is the most comprehensive guideline that I have come across in recent years.

If you are about to start work on a disertation and intend to buy just one book on how to manage it, this would be a very good choice. However do read more than one!
