Long DescriptionWith more than 400,000 copies now in print, The Craft of Research is the unrivaled resource for researchers at every level, from first-year undergraduates to research reporters at corporations and government offices. Seasoned researchers and educators Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams present an updated third edition of their classic handbook, whose first and second editions were written in collaboration with the late Wayne C. Booth. The Craft of Research explains how to build an argument that motivates readers to accept a claim; how to anticipate the reservations of readers and to respond to them appropriately; and how to create introductions and conclusions that answer that most demanding question, “So what?” The third edition includes an expanded discussion of the essential early stages of a research task: planning and drafting a paper. The authors have revised and fully updated their section on electronic research, emphasizing the need to distinguish between trustworthy sources (such as those found in libraries) and less reliable sources found with a quick Web search. A chapter on warrants has also been thoroughly reviewed to make this difficult subject easier for researchers Throughout, the authors have preserved the amiable tone, the reliable voice, and the sense of directness that have made this book indispensable for anyone undertaking a research project.

Article of interest

Thank you all for your patence and understanding during the last several weeks as we added new equipment to the web site. We are all finished with the hardware portion of the upgrade.

We still have changes coming for the web site. We will always be improving but we have a few big changes coming to the web site soon that will make things a little easier for everyone.

But the big hardware upgrade is finished. We now have two new servers that share the duty of serving up web pages, product data and pictures to you.

The two servers share the work load so neither one has to do it all and this should offer faster serverice on a regular basis. But when we need to perform backups or other maintenance on one of the machines, we can switch the system to use only the other server and you will never know.

We hope that this stops most, if not all, down time in the future. The site has become far to popular to be off line for any lenght of time.

Again, thanks for your understanding.
