This wonderful little book is not just a style manual on the mechanics of footnotes; it is an exposition of what might be called the "philosophy" of footnotes. It gives the reasons for having them to begin with, and surveys the intellectual content they ought to contain...Any student who reads this will have a sense of why such things are required for intellectual honesty. -- Thomas Mann, author A Guide to Library Research Methods (Oxford U. Press, 1987)
