    Hello!

    I am citing the introduction to a book (MLA style) and the introduction part doesn't have any page numbers.

    Firstly, does anyone know how I should go about putting this into my works cited and secondly, what should I put for the in-text reference?

    Thanks for your help!

    If the work you are citing has no page numbers, then you can use the shorthand n. pag. (which means no pagination). So for instance the citation in the work would look like so:

    Marx and Engels believed that history was defined by an eternal struggle between classes (Marx and Engels, 1848; n. pag.).


    There is a fantastic website which I have used in the past that can give you fantastic guidance and assistance with your essay writing called 5000 Lines:
