Citations for books have four main parts: author, date, title, and publication information (place of publication and publisher). Each part ends in a period followed by a space.
Provide full reference information for each selection cited from a collection, using In to show the larger work from which the selection is taken. (The abbreviation for one editor is Ed.)
Begin with the title. Alphabetize the entry by the first word of the title other than a, an , or the.
