<div>When Kate L. Turabian first put her famous guidelines to paper, she could hardly have imagined the world in which today’s students would be conducting research. Yet while the ways in which we research and compose papers may have changed, the fundamentals remain the same: writers need to have a strong research question, construct an evidence-based argument, cite their sources, and structure their work in a logical way. <i>A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations</i>—also known as “Turabian”—remains one of the most popular books for writers because of its timeless focus on achieving these goals.<br /><br /><br /><br />This new edition filters decades of expertise into modern standards. While previous editions incorporated digital forms of research and writing, this edition goes even further to build information literacy, recognizing that most students will be doing their work largely or entirely online and on screens. Chapters include updated advice on finding, evaluating, and citing a wide range of digital sources and also recognize the evolving use of software for citation management, graphics, and paper format and submission. The ninth edition is fully aligned with the recently released <i>Chicago Manual of Style</i>, 17th edition, as well as with the latest edition of <i>The Craft of Research.</i><br /><br /><br /><br />Teachers and users of the previous editions will recognize the familiar three-part structure. Part 1 covers every step of the research and writing process, including drafting and revising. Part 2 offers a comprehensive guide to Chicago’s two methods of source citation: notes-bibliography and author-date. Part 3 gets into matters of editorial style and the correct way to present quotations and visual material. <i> A Manual for Writers</i> also covers an issue familiar to writers of all levels: how to conquer the fear of tackling a major writing project.<br /><br /><br /><br />Through eight decades and millions of copies, <i>A Manual for Writers</i> has helped generations shape their ideas into compelling research papers. This new edition will continue to be the gold standard for college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines.<br /><br /> </div>

<Strong>The Instant Pot cooks meals 70% faster than a device like a slow cooker and seals in juices and flavor just like a pressure cooker does—but is much easier to use than a traditional pressure cooker, with its intimidating pressure release valves and all that dangerous steam! <br />What is certain is that the Instant Pot delivers meals that are tender, succulent, cooked to perfection, and super-easy to prepare. <br />You can actually make homemade bean soup from your favorite dry beans in 40 minutes flat—no need to soak them overnight or cook them for hours. <br />You can cook a whole chicken in under an hour. The Instant Pot provides endless ways to cook delicious meals that once took hours in mere minutes. You can create a Boeuf Bourguignon in one-fourth of the time it would take you in the oven—and 1/8th of the time it would take you in a traditional slow cooker. <br /></Strong></br><br /><br /><br /><br />Recipes Include: <br /><ul><br /><li>Pumpkin Coffee Cake</li><br /><li>Easy Baked Eggs</li><br /><li>Buffalo Meatballs</li><br /><li>Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms</li><br /><li>Italian Chicken Chili</li><br /><li>Curry Beef Stew</li><br /><li>Philly Cheesesteak</li><br /><li>Pork Lettuce Cups</li><br /><li>Amazing Asian Pulled Pork</li><br /><li>Chicken and Bacon Lasagna Roll-ups</li><br /><li>Garlicky Tuna Casserole</li><br /><li>Lemon Ricotta Torte</li><br /><li>Chocolate Almond Fudge</li><br /><li>Homemade Root Beer</li><br /><li>Bacon cheeseburger</li><br /><li>Copycat Frosty</li><br /><li>Corn dogs</li><br /><li>Curry</li><br /><li>Pho</li><br /><li>Tom ka gai</li><br /><li>Carne asada</li><br /><li>Gnocchi</li><br /><li>Calzones</li><br /><li>Cannoli</li><br /><li>General Tso’s</li><br /><li>And many more!</li><br /></ul><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><STRONG>Does it sound too good to be true? </STRONG> Let’s get to facts and prove the benefits to you. <STRONG><U>Click "Buy with 1-Click" and start your new life!</STRONG></U><br /><br />
