The guidelines to correct hyphenation, punctuation, capitalization and foreign and English spelling are crisp and compact, created for instant reference in the rush of deadlines. Rewritten for the first time in twenty-three years and greatly expanded since the last edition, the manual tackles issues that will follow writers into the new century: how to respect the equality of the sexes without self-conscious devices such as "he or she"; how to choose thoughtfully between terms like African-American and black; Hispanic and Latino; American Indian and Native American; and how to translate the vocabulary of e-mail and cyberspace for everyday readers, and how to cope with the eccentric capitalization and punctuation of Internet company names and Web site addresses.
The authors also offer a thumbnail guide to newsroom ethics and standards in their entries on anonymous sources, attribution, fairness and obscenity. And they seed the rules with wry humor.
For writers, editors, students, researchers and all who love language The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage is an entertaining tool as well as an essential reference.
