Writing History: A Guide for Students
by William Kelleher Storey
Oxford University Press, 2015
146 pages

Writing History, described as “a practical guide for beginning historians” by the author, arms students with the tools necessary to research and write historical essays. The book concisely covers several topics, including plagiarism, organization, and how to remain faithful to historical facts. Storey focuses on research essays, but his guidance can help those who are writing shorter pieces as well. Particularly helpful are the seventh and eighth chapters, “Writing Sentences in History” and “Choosing Precise Words,” which contain advice applicable to all writers (including bloggers). Writing History is highly recommended for those delving into historical research.
