Review:

What can we say? This weighty tome is the essential reference for all who work with words--writers, editors, proofreaders, indexers, copywriters, designers, publishers, and students. Discover who Ibid is, how to deftly avoid the split infinitive, and how to format your manuscripts to impress any professor or editor (no, putting it in a blue plastic folder is just not enough).

From Booklist:

This revision of the classic handbook for editors reflects changes in the publishing world since the last edition in 1982. For example, publishers are instructed on including bar codes and a paper-durability statement on their books. The three chapters on documentation have been rearranged into two and now tell how to cite such sources as online databases and Internet. The chapter on copyright has been rewritten to take note of the 1989 changes in the law and offers a fuller interpretation of "fair use." The use of computer technology for manuscript preparation, to create indexes, and for composition, design, printing, and binding is discussed throughout.

The quotations chapter has been expanded to treat such forms as interior monologue and stream of consciousness. Many sections have been revised to reflect contemporary usage. The manual now notes that the term black is often capitalized and that African American is also gaining acceptance. (It is unfortunate that the word Kaffir is still given in the list of examples of "specific racial, linguistic, tribal, religious, and other groupings.") The use of split infinitives is no longer listed as an error because "the Press now regards the intelligent and discriminating use of the construction as a legitimate form of expression." The chapter on foreign languages has a new section on Hebrew.

Each chapter and section of the manual continues to be identified by a unique number. The book has been so thoroughly revised that, in the majority of cases, sections carried over from the past edition have a different number. The book is almost 200 pages longer than the last edition. Anyone who prepares copy for publication will need to consult this new edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. Sandy Whiteley
