I posted this project 2 hours ago, but now I'm reposting it with minimum of 1500 words, since this assignment constitutes 20% of my grade.
The requirements in black text are detailed by my professor. Orange text is my own.
Write a critique the following book this semester:
“Abraham Lincoln and the Second American Revolution”.
Google Drive link of the book: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_Mg3l6ROxYZMzhpb0FiRzBjR1E&usp=sharing
(The book has 173 pages so I only took photos of the first and the last paragraphs of each chapter of the book. Please be flexible with citing the book.)
The critique should be a minimum of 1500 words and should include the following elements:
Your paper should begin with a paragraph of information about the author (James M. McPherson) of the book in which you present the author’s credentials or expertise.
What academic degrees has the author earned? Where did the author earn these
degrees? What other books or articles has the author published? What honors or
awards has the author received?
Here is the Wikipedia article on McPherson: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_M._McPherson
(Please feel free to find any other sources on McPherson as well.)
Next is the summary section of the paper in which you provide the main thesis
statements or assertions that the author presents in the book. What appears to be
the most important information in the book? What does the author seem to most
want the reader to learn from the book?
Next is the critical analysis section of the paper in which you freely and candidly
express your opinions about the book. For example: Is the book written in a way
that engages the reader? Is the author persuasive? Does the author seem to be
authoritative? Does the information presented in the book agree with or conflict with what you’ve learned about the subject from other sources? Would you recommend this book to other students?
