Specifically, I don't see a reference to 3 authors for the Book Chapter.
"15.86 - In the case of three authors, the names are listed in the order
shown on the title page:
4. P. D. Brett, S. W. Johnson, and C. R. T. Bach, Mastering String
Quartets[in italics] (San Francisco: Amati Press, 1989).
For the bibliography entry, only the first author's name is inverted. In the
interest of clarity and ease of reading, especially when many initials are
involved, the names may be separated by semicolons, although commas may also
suffice. Either practice must be followed consistently.
Brett, P. D.; S. W. Johnson; and C. R. T. Bach. Mastering String
Quartets[in italics]. San Francisco: Amati Press, 1989."
"16.75 Chapters or other Titled Parts of a Book.
When a chapter or other titled part of a book is cited, that title is given
roman type, with sentence capitalization, without quotation marks. The title
ends with a period and is followed by In [in italics] and the title of thte
book. If the part is identified by type and number ("Chap. 8 in," "Pt. 1
of"), this information replaces In[in italics] preceding the book title.
[Following is the example with a number.]
" Thompson, Virgil, 1971. Cage and the college of noises. Chap. 8 in
[American music since 1910]. New York: Holt, Rinehart, and Winston."
Bracketed part italicized.
I assume you would do the three authors the same as in the bibliography??
Also more than three authors is treated differently.
