Summary
"All new PhD's hope that their dissertations will become books. But a dissertation is written for a committee, and a book for the larger world. Closing that gap is the subject of William Germano's From Dissertation to Book, the essential guide for academic writers who want to revise a doctoral thesis for publication. The author of Getting It Published, Germano draws upon his extensive experience in academic publishing to provide writers with a state-of-the-art view of how to turn a dissertation into a manuscript that publishers will notice." "Writers will find advice on such topics as rethinking the table of contents, taming runaway footnotes, shaping chapter length, and confronting the limitations of jargon, alongside helpful timetables for light or heavy revision." --Book Jacket
