In the reference list use the state abbreviation or country with publication information in book entries even if it is a well-known city such as New York, NY or London, England. This is a change from the 5th edition. The exception is if a university is the publisher and the name of the state is included in the university name; do not repeat the state---Lawrence: University of Kansas. However, don't use the abbreviation "U.K."; use "United Kingdom" instead. The longer (and slightly more informative) version: Sometimes people treat "England" and "UK" as if they were synonymous. However, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (or United Kingdom, for short) is a constitutional monarchy that includes the constituent nations of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, all of which have rich, complicated histories and passionate nationalist movements. So "Cambridge, England" is OK; "Cambridge, United Kingdom" is OK; but "Edinburgh, England" is not.
