The style of The Associated Press is the gold standard for news writing. With The Associated Press Stylebook in hand, you can learn how to write and edit with the clarity and professionalism for which the agency's writers and editors are famous. Fully revised and updated to reflect the latest changes in writing style, this new edition contains more than 3,000 A-to-Z entries detailing the AP's rules on grammar, spelling, capitalization, abbreviation, and word and numeral usage. You'll find answers to such wide-ranging questions as:

• When should the names of government bodies be spelled out and when should they be abbreviated?
• What are the general definitions of the major religious movements?
• Which companies do the big media conglomerates own?
• Who are all the members of the British Commonwealth?
• How should box scores for baseball games be filed?
• What constitutes "fair use"?
• What exactly does the Freedom of Information Act cover?

With invaluable additional sections on the unique guidelines for business and sports reporting and on how you can guard against libel land copyright infringement, The AP Stylebook is the one reference that all writers, editors, and students cannot afford to be without.

NOTE: This title is a Bargain book. Bargain books are excess inventory or store returns from publishers that are discreetly marked with a small dot or line on the edge of the pages and, while most are in great condition, some books may exhibit minor cosmetic wear and tear. They may also have a price sticker on it from the original store it was returned from. In rare cases the actual cover of the book might not match the one in the display picture.

Due to many publishers not providing a Canadian list price the Canadian list price shown is an estimation based upon the US list price multiplied by the current exchange rate.
