Writing Between the Lines: Composition in the Social Sciences.

Taking readers behind the scenes of the compositional process, Douglas Flemons offers suggestions for the social science writer. The text covers creating and editing papers, theses and dissertations, and devotes special attention to the researching, organizing and writing of literature reviews. Each section of a typical social science manuscript is given particular attention. Chapters include: composing; creating and editing; social science papers; how sentences work; how punctuation works; keeping track of time; idea development; and aesthetic choices. Writers within the social sciences and helping professionals should find this work accessible and helpful. The text also includes an appendix of print and Web writing resources.
