This is a 2000 word essay on the topic: Did the League of Nations fail for any one specific reason, or are the basic tenets of collective security implausible at any time?. It is an assignment for the first year of undergraduate module Introduction to International Relations.
Basically, the essay should answer the question with referencing to the literature. I will supply you with 2-3 sources. However, the work has to have at least 5-6 sources referenced. Wikipedia and such are not allowed so only academic books/journals/articles are accepted. One of the sources can be an internet source.
– The Age of Extremes: The short twentieth century history 1914-1991 by Eric Hobsbawm = this can be used in whatever way the writer prefers.
– The twenty years’ crisis 1919-1939: An introduction to the study of International Relations = from this work the writer can only use PART 2 (The International Crisis), Chapters 3,4,5 and 6, pages 22-89
– Wilson, W, speech given to joint session of US Congress 8 January 1918 – this source can be accessed through this link: http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/wilson14.asp
The writer is free to use whatever part of that source as well.
Finally, this is a list of works that a writer CAN use but DOES NOT have to – he/she is free to add additional sources which he/she finds relevant:
