The second edition of the MHRA Style Guide is now available both in print and online.
The MHRA Style Guide, like the Style Book before it, has become a standard work of reference in the humanities and has been adopted by many authors, editors, and publishers. The current edition (April 2008) takes account of comments and suggestions made by users of its predecessor, the Style Guide of 2002, and the editors are grateful for these.
It has been updated, especially in order to take account of the widespread use of electronic means of text preparation, submission, and publication. Some sections have been revised or expanded for the sake of clarity and completeness, and new ones have been added; in this process, the previous Chapter 2 has been divided into a revised chapter on Spelling and Usage and a new Chapter 3 on Names. Material that seemed redundant has been removed.
