Writing Assignments

1. Brief Reviews.  For each reading, students must provide a brief (no more than 400 words) written review; aim not so much to summarize as to evaluate.  Write in the incisive, critical, sometimes humorous fashion of the book reviews in first-rank journalism (e.g., The New York Review of Books, The Economist magazine).

2. Longer Papers. Students must provide papers totaling 10,000 words of text (footnotes, appendices, tables, references do not count against the 10,000) during the course.  Write in the fashion of scholarship that is aimed at literate cross-disciplinary audiences (e.g., Foreign Policy, or books from think tanks).  Therefore, be scholarly, but also be engaging, and above all be clear!  Use sources beyond those represented in the readings above.  Topics on which to write, along with page limits, are described below.

Longer Paper Questions
