"The best little book for college writers. Harvey understands the writer's position—and plight—when composing essays that must respond to texts yet make independent assertions. Writing with Sources not only provides clear rules of citation for papers in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, but it also shows how writers can incorporate and advance ideas learned from other writers, while avoiding the bad habits of composition that can lead to plagiarism. It's the one book to keep on your desk."
     —David Gewanter, English Department, Georgetown University

"An important, much needed pedagogical tool, this short volume provides practical, easily implemented advice and guidelines to citing and acknowledging the sources for one's reports and arguments. Put in the hands of students as they enter university, it will serve them well throughout their undergraduate years and beyond."
     —Ted Humphrey, Barrett Honors College, Arizona State University

 

"An excellent and concise survey for students.  Harvey covers all the necessary bases and mixes in a touch of humor besides.  Its strength lies in its size: college students will not be put off by the volume, but it does not sugarcoat its message, either.  Using examples from the book's own text is brilliant!"
    —Daniel Berman, The Pennsylvania State University

 

"Writing with Sources is stern, positive, and clear.  Harvey explains plagiarism in precise terms with lucid examples, but also shows how to use sources to construct one's own strong argument.  Every writer should read it, as should every reader who wishes to evaluate popular and scholarly arguments."
    —Sarah Schneewind, University of California at San Diego
