The UPI Stylebook: A Handbook for Writers and Editors.
Miller, Bobby Ray, Comp.
This is the first cover-to-cover revision of the basic stylebook adopted in 1960 by United Press International and The Associated Press. Its primary purpose is to provide a set of consistent guidelines, reflecting current word usage, for newspaper editors handling wire-service copy and for others who follow the same style. The main entries, which include subject entries, phrases, single words, abbreviations, and proper names, are arranged in alphabetical order; guidelines are provided for spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and usage.
