The Art of the Footnote reacquaints students and writers with the footnote as the most effective method for presenting all of the information that is necessary to make every manuscript lucid for every reader. This book shows why footnotes are valuable, even essential, as a part of writing in the context of the scientific and historical methods of research; how easy it is to become thoroughly familiar with the various types of notes and when to employ them; and how to create footnotes which are both clear and helpful to the reader.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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)
