Brief Analytical Papers HIS 2040, Wayne State University
You will write TWO brief papers (4-6 pages), double spaced with standard size font. These essays will be based on the assigned document collections, read in combination with other course readings, especially the Murrin book (Liberty, Equality, Power). I will circulate a handout about these papers. You will choose TWO of the FOUR assigned document collections (Holton, Sklar, Heidler, or Johnson). You MUST make active use of the documents in the book, quoting to support generalizations. That first submission will be a draft.
