From the book review list, select 2 and write and write a book review for each (separate documents)
– The book reports do not summarize the book. Instead, they explain how issues are framed, how evidence is used, and whether conclusions seem valid or whether there might be holes in the logic. In particular, how the book deals with the particular theme selected by the student (for the 3 reports) will be important to flesh-out.
-The three book reports should be on a similar topic and should engage with some of the same concepts / themes.
-Assume the professor is familiar with the book and jump directly into how the book engages with your selected theme (this will assist in avoiding summarization).
– Explain what is significant about the work with respect to your topic; not simply what it says.
– Each report should briefly outline the author’s biography in 1-2 sentences.
The overall point of this project is to begin engaging with the same idea across multiple sources in the field. That first annotated bibliography assignment will be very important, in that you will need to verify that you are using sources that can actually be compared.
