Review: MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers

User Review  - Mara Eastern - Goodreads

A good guide for beginners, but it does not cover the needs of anyone actually serious with style. Contains some questionable advice, including the one on capitalising coordinating conjunctions in titles of works while setting subordinating conjunctions in lower-case. Seriously. Read full review
