Writing in the Social Sciences: A Guide for Term Papers and Book Reviews
ISBN 13: 9780195430264

About the Book

Writing in the Social Sciences is a brief guide for first- and second-year students that walks them through every stage of the term-paper and book-report writing process. Muller leads students through formulating a thesis statement, listing arguments, and gathering evidence to support the arguments. He also shows students how to define their concepts, organize their arguments, and draft conclusions. Students are then shown how to convert these ideas into an outline, and then how to develop this outline into a paper. Every stage of the process is broken down into concise, practical, easy-to-follow steps that are supported by numerous examples, checklists, and outlines.

Readership : Students enrolled in first- and second-year social science courses at the community-college level.
