An ideal complement for any history course, A Short Guide to Writing about History helps you learn how to think and write like an historian.

This engaging and practical text helps you get beyond merely compiling dates and facts; it teaches you how to incorporate your own ideas into your papers and to tell a story about history that interests you and your peers. Covering brief essays and the documented resource paper, the text explores the writing and researching processes, different modes of historical writing (including argument), and offers guidelines for improving style as well as documenting sources.
