Instructions
1.
Write a 6 to 8-page essay in which you compare and evaluate the manner in which these articles
approach the topic. In your essay, you should begin by clearly identifying and comparing the
theses, or main arguments, presented in the selected articles.

2.
The remainder of your essay will then compare and evaluate the arguments presented by the authors, commenting on the respective strengths and weaknesses of each article and the arguments being presented by their authors. As with any history paper, be sure to cite all references – Chicago Style.

Questions to consider:
1. Are the authors’ interpretations different?
2. If so, how and why have they come to differing conclusions?
3. What types of sources or references did they use?
4. What is their methodology?
5. What kind of audiences do the authors have in mind when they are writing?
6. Do the three foregoing aspects of their work affect the interpretations they take and the
conclusions they draw?
7. Which of the two interpretations do you find the most persuasive and why? (This last point
should be the focal point of your essay.)

The essay will be graded on the content, written presentation, structure, grammar, and
quality of your argument.
