ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY ASSIGNMENT In this assignment, you will write an Annotated Bibliography. An Annotated Bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150-200 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited. Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research. After choosing a topic related to ancient & medieval history and formulating a testable thesis, you will locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic; you will briefly examine and review the actual items. You will then choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic. Cite the book, article, or document using MLA style, and write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article. Include one or more sentences that (a) evaluate the authority or background of the author, (b) comment on the intended audience, (c) compare or contrast this work with another you have cited, or (d) explain how this work illuminates your bibliography topic. Your Annotated Bibliography must contain between 15-20 entries, and your entries must conform to MLA standards. In addition, you must choose only scholarly books, article, and documents as your sources; you may NOT use websites for this assignment. A sample MLA formatted Annotated Bibliography is included in this folder; I highly recommend that you read through this example in its entirety so that you get a sense of what a completed assignment of this magnitude looks like. Please understand that your finished product should like EXACTLY like the example, except for the fact that you will have between 15-20 entries. This includes the heading that must have your name, the course designation, the topic, the thesis, and then the 15-20 entries that are alphabetized by the author’s last name and that follow all MLA formatting rules. I have also included a link to an MLA formatting guide that will assist you in understanding these rules and guidelines. Please let me know if you have questions. SAMPLE MLA FORMAT ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY NAME: John Q. Student COURSE: POS 1020 (Spring 2017) TOPIC: Voter Apathy THESIS: Voter turnout has continued to decline in America. Research suggests that the primary cause of voter apathy is that politicians are boring. Andrews, Aaron Aardvark. "What, Me Vote? Get Outta Here!" New Nudnick Reporter 27 March 1994: 31-39. Andrews investigates the prevailing attitude of a large segment of American society that voting is a waste of time. Included in his article are results from a survey of 5000 former voters. The survey was conducted over two national election cycles and shows increasing apathy among voters. Although brief, Andrews' discussion is key to understanding why so many Americans don't vote. Ballistic, Byron B. "Fry Them Turkeys! Politicians Are Crooks." Revolt and Rejection: an Interdisciplinary Journal of Political Science 35 (March 1993): 37-58. Ballistic provides valuable analysis of why American voters are so disenchanted with American politicians. The article is extensively researched and provides a useful bibliography of research articles that include voter surveys. Ballistic uses survey results to enumerate the primary complaints that voters have against politicians and provides comparative data from some of the key surveys in tabular form. Dimwitty, Walter C. A Brief History of the Urge to Sleep Through Televised National Election Returns. New Narcolepsy, PA: SleepWalk Press, 1992. This collection of essays pulls together research on voter apathy from the early 1960s through 1993. The variety of viewpoints represented here and the historical comparisons presented are the major strengths of this collection. A concluding chapter pulls together the author's assumptions about voter disinterest in televised election coverage and suggests possible strategies for re-engaging voters in the process. Dunnow, I. "Predictors of Young Adult Voting Behavior; the Beavis and Butthead' Experience." Annals of Antipathy30.1 (1995): 57-98. I. Dunnow's humorous satire of young voters also includes considerable research. Included are results of four surveys of first time voters conducted during the 1990s. Dunnow's tongue-in-cheek approach to developing his article entertains but doesn't distract the reader from the issues covered in the article. Faulty, Brain A.M. Bud's Wiser; a Study of Why People Don't Vote. St. Paul, MN: Say So Press, Inc., 1995. This detailed analysis of the growing apathy among American voters comes to some startling conclusions. One of the more interesting is that 60% of American men who leave work early to vote go instead to happy hour. One of the more useful chapters in the book is devoted to a state-by-state canvassing of voters and non-voters. Results are delivered in statistical tables and illustrated with bar graphs. ...
