Abstract:

[This book] is the authoritative student resource on "Chicago style." If you are writing a research paper, you may be told to follow Chicago style for citations and for issues of mechanics, such as capitalization and abbreviations.... For citations, you may use one of two styles recommended by Chicago. In the humanities and some social sciences, you will likely use notes-bibliography style, while in the natural and physical science (and some social sciences) you may use parenthetical citations-reference list (or "author-date") style. [This book] explains ... both styles. -p. xi.
