writing about the republic of China in the World war II

complete a research paper—typed, double-spaced, 12 point New Times Roman type, one-inch margins

paper will focus on a topic that falls in the period from World War II to the present. The aim is NOT to write on current events but on events or trends in the past that can help give essential background for understanding today’s news. Library research using scholarly books and journals (not newspaper articles) will be the backbone of the assignment (at least three journal articles and two books should be used heavily in the research). Each paper will be organized around something puzzling in that country’s political, economic, or social experience at some time in the latter half of the twentieth century or the first decades of the present century. That puzzle will be expressed in a “why question,” which will be substantiated by qualitative or quantitative evidence. Students will develop an answer to that “why question,” which will be the argument of the paper, including further evidence to support that argument. (approx. 5-6 pages)
