Consider also Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(lists_of_works) and Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(novels)#Publication_history


To make use of this template, please proceed as follows:

  1. copy and paste the entire contents of the box below to your new article page
  2. work your way through the article replacing fields between pairs of ~~ (tildes) with new information appropriate to the novel being discussed (erasing the tildes in the process)
  3. If a section is not relevant to your subject or you do not have information to include on the topic either cut it out or comment it out for future editors to work on, and finally
  4. Save your new article (of course there may be many previews before this)

A final note about the process may be helpful:

  • The final line of the main part of the template reads

[[Category:Writings on ~Subject~]] OR [[Category:Literature]]

  • This line means either insert a Category line for a particular genre of Books (Economics / History / Political science / etc.) or (failing to find a suitable category) into the general Literature Category but not both. In point of fact, it's not completely essential to limit yourself to one or the other, and some books may fall into more than one subject, but whatever you do please note that the word "or" in that line should disappear since it is a message to the article maker (you) and not part of the final text. If it remains, then it will show up as a rather mysterious word in the final text portion of your article (since Category lines are directives which are removed from the main text).

Pattern template

<!--Replace text within ~ squiggles (tilde) like these ~ with the specific information 
about the novel. Please try to insert as much information as you can and then remove 
sections that are not relevant.-->

<!--Future spot for Infoboxes-->

'''''~Title of Book~''''' is a ~book genre(s)~ by ~author of book~.
<!-- Expand the lead paragraph above to summarize the article (but NOT the contents of the book, which belongs in the Overview section below). 
Briefly describe distinctive characteristics of the the book, major themes, awards, and notable related works. Do not make any statement 
that is not expanded later in another section of the article.-->

<!--Themes / Synopsis may be substituted for Overview. The synopsis should be between 400 and 700 words (about 600 words), 
but should not exceed 900 words unless there is a specific reason such as being complicated.-->
~Brief summary of the book~

==Popular success==
<!--Also acceptable to use Awards and nominations as a header/subheader. This could be combined with a Criticism / Reception as below.-->
~History of popular success~

<!--Reviews / Commercial and critical reception / Criticism / Analysis are all acceptable headers/subheaders. Include facts (with a cited 
source), and the opinions of notable people that have been published in some form. The section should be reserved for critical analysis
of the book by notable, published critics. No personal opinions, views i.e. a subjective book review. 
See guidelines on [[MisesWiki:Neutral point of view]].-->
~Criticism, reception and analysis~

==Publication History==
<!--Also acceptable to use Editions / Release details for header. A {{cite book}} template has not yet been created, 
see [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Cite_book]. 
See guidelines on [[Template:Book]].-->
~Publication history~

==Development history==
~history of the book's development, if available 
(e.g., ''[[The Theory of Money and Credit]]'')~

~Any adaptations to TV-series, films, videos etc.~

<!--Chapters could also be the header. Wikipedia's guidelines for nonfiction books says "(avoid if you can convey this in the synopsis)". 
Mises Wiki may want detailed analysis of individual sections at some point though-->

~references to sources etc.~
<!--I'm not sure how MisesWiki will handle Quotes. The rest of this line is from Wikipedia's Novel Template: ~include quotes or links to 
http://www.wikiquote.org/Wikiquote here~-->

==External links==
<!--Remove the 2nd following ~line~ if the book is not available from the Mises Store. Use the format as described at 
[[Template:Store]] and in the next following comment line.-->
<!--{{Store|Link to the store, with http|Book name (if not identical to the title of the page)}}-->
{{Store|~link to book's Mises Store page~}}
<!--Links to major versions of the full text in PDF/HTML/ePub/other formats-->
<!--Link to, but don't include, reviews of the book and other sources-->
<!--Links to websites about the book-->

~Stub notice, if necessary~

<!--Appropriate categories are subject to change. If unsure what genre/category is appropriate use [[Category:Literature]]-->

[[Category:Writings of ~Author Name~]]
[[Category:Writings on ~Subject~]] OR [[Category:Literature]]
