If you are writing a thesis - whether edging towards it, wrestling with it, or just plain stuck - this sensible, thoroughly practical book is bound to help you. The first edition proved invaluable to thousands of postgraduate students, and this second updated edition is sure to do the same. The emphasis is firmly upon structure. Having supervised countless postgraduate students and seen all the pitfalls, David Evans and Paul Gruba are convinced that clear and logical structure is the key to a good thesis. How to Write a Better Thesis gives concrete examples of common structural problems, then offers numerous devices, tricks and tests by which to avoid them.
