Review by Choice Review

The eighth edition of Turabian's manual (7th ed., CH, Oct'07, 45-0587) offers rules consistent with the mandates of the 16th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style (CH, Jan'11, 48-2398). This edition's new graphic design updates the look and feel of this resource and further develops rules and advice for the use and citation of online sources. In addition to featuring new templates for citing e-books, websites, blogs, social networks, discussion groups, online videos, and podcasts, the eighth edition offers new general advice to help students make good decisions about what information to include for online sources that may not have all the traditional elements useful in citing a print source. Specifically, students should include enough information for a reader to discover the creators of the work, supply relevant identifying data, use publisher information, and describe where to find the information. The "Research and Writing: From Planning to Production" section has a new item on checking for blind spots in arguments, encouraging writers to explore alternative interpretations of evidence and address counterarguments. The discipline-specific bibliography of core reference works, bibliographies, and manuals includes new and updated works. The reproduced sample thesis and dissertation pages now reflect improved formatting options available in modern word-processing software. Summing Up: Recommended.
