Books Info:

The Craft of Research free pdf With more than 200,000 copies 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.Now, 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.
