need practice evaluating scholarly arguments and presenting your ideas in a clear, accurate, and concise manner. It is also meant to prompt a close consideration of how historians use primary sources.
Draft a concise review of the book. Your review should observe the following guidelines: First, you should open your essay with an introductory paragraph that introduces the overall themes of Jacoby’s book to the reader. In your opening paragraph you need to present a clear and concise argument about the nature of “justice” in this book. As you read think about whether what the U.S. Army or Apaches did was “just.” Who is to blame for this massacre? Did the Apache receive “justice” in this crime? Or was the U.S. Army action even a crime at all? Also consider: Why has Jacoby written this book? What message does he want to convey? Why does that message matter? (You don’t have to specifically answer each of the above questions, but you do want to craft an argument that takes a position on one of Jacoby’s arguments.) How to succeed: The best papers make a strong and clear argument and then use evidence in the form of examples or quotes from the book to help illustrate and prove their argument. But don’t over-quote, you want your evidence to complement your own argument, not to serve as a page-filler — use quotes smartly, but sparingly (aim for 1-2 per page.) When footnoting your quotes use parentheses e.g: (Jacoby, p.12) A bibliography or works cited is not required. Your essay must be exactly 2 pages long, double-spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman font, 1 inch margins.
