This text provides the undergraduate student of history with tips and advice on the ways professional historians write. Beginning with how historians find topics and research them, the book should sharpen such skills as interpreting source materials, drawing inferences from sources, and constructing arguments. The three closing chapters contain practical suggestions for writing effective sentences, using precise wording, and revising.
