To write history successfully, it is essential to understand the nuts and bolts of technique as well as the underlying principles which govern the whole process. Writing History Essays takes you step by step through the process of writing an assignment, breaking it down into a series of manageable tasks, including:

· selecting sources
· reading critically
· taking notes
· planning and drafting your essay
· referencing correctly and avoiding plagiarism

This book also takes you beyond the essay, with practical advice on writing book reviews, reports and dissertations, as well as guidance on sitting examinations. This new edition includes reflective questions at the end of each chapter and discussion of visual and web-based sources, making it an indispensable guide for history students.

Review:

'This is a well-organized, jargon-free textbook which helps students engage with history in a personal way and proposes clear guidelines for good academic writing. The new edition, with a special chapter on web-based resources, should be recommended reading for history students at all levels.' - Angela Jianu, University of Warwick, UK
