Mapping Your Thesis: Techniques and Rhetorics for Masters' and Doctoral Researchers

If this book provided a set of rules to be learned and applied writing a thesis might seem pleasingly easy. But, because writing a thesis is seldom easy, the book instead offers a more complex mapping of the process. The purpose is to raise awareness of, and provide grist for reflection on, the critical choices research and thesis writing for both masters and doctorates currently involves. Running as a leitmotif throughout is the notion that no conceptual construct can be complete unto itself: concepts can only be defined in terms of their dynamic relations with other constructs.
