•    Word count: approximately 1500.  
•    Double space everything.
•    In general, please adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style.
•    Use as little formatting as possible. Details like page numbers, headers, footers, and columns will be added later. Use tabs instead of multiple spaces for indenting. Use italics instead of underlining. Use an “em dash” (—) instead of a double hyphen (--).
•    The header should include The Title of the Book.  Author or Editor.  Translator.  City: Publisher, year.  Pages. Price in U.S. Dollars. And ISBN #
•    Please include your name, institution, address, and email address at the end of the review. (This information is not included in the word count.)
•    Citations from the book should be page numbers in parentheses.  
•    If additional notes are used, please use endnotes instead of footnotes. Please do not include discussion notes.  Examples of proper endnote style:
•    John Rawls. A Theory of Justice (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1971), 90.
•    See Sally Haslanger, “Gender and Race: (What) Are they? (What) Do We Want Them To Be?” Noûs, 34 (2000): 31-55.
