"It is rare that books about writing are well-written. This is a well-presented story that should keep students' attention throughout. It is also brilliantly practical. This is the computer manual that tells you to plug in the machine first. It is a work that students will read and that faculty can rely on."--Mark A. Kishlansky, Harvard University
"The strength of this text is its focus upon a methodical process of selecting a research topic, building the argument, and organizing the essay. Nothing else out there, in my opinion, does this as well as Writing History."--John Howard Smith, Texas AandM University-Commerce
