IAH 202: Europe and the World
Fall 2014
Reading Review Portfolio Assignment (30% = 90pts)
Write 5 short reading review essays on 5 different books assigned for the class. Each
review essay will focus on a specific section, chapter or feature of an assigned book. You
will want to summarize briefly the main topic of the book and give information about the
author in the introductory paragraph, but each review essay should not be a summary of
the entire book. The review will want to develop a central point about the book. To
illustrate central point, you will quote from 2-3 key short passages from the book and
discuss the significance of the passages as they relate to the central idea.
Each review essay will be about 2 pages double-spaced. The total reading review
portfolio will be approximately 10 pages in length double-spaced. Below is a sample
outline of a reading review:
Paragraph 1: Introduction (mention book title, author, date of publication, main
topic and announce the central point of the review.
Paragraph 2: Discuss the central point of the review and its significance within
the book. (sample central points for Pagden might be the following: the idea of
civilization in the history of European Empires; the role of Christianity in
Empires; the legacy of the classical Empires of Greece and Rome in the early
modern and modern Empires, etc.)
Paragraph 3: Discuss a brief passage (2-3 lines) from the book. Begin by
introducing the passage, then quote the passage, and then analyze the passage as it
relates to the central idea.
Paragraph 4: Discuss another brief passage (2-3 lines) from the book. Begin by
introducing the passage, then quote the passage, and then analyze the passage as it
relates to the central idea.
Paragraph 5: Conclude by assessing the interest of the book and its treatment of
the central point. For example, if the central point is the role of Christianity in
early modern and modern Europe empires, they would say something like the
Pagden effectively illustrates the different ways that Christianity served
both to justify wars in the colonies against the native populations who
were deemed subhuman and also as force of civilization that recognized
the humanity of the natives. . . .
Even though the Reading Review Portfolio is a collection of personal reflections
on the books, each review should be written in formal prose, discuss details from the
texts, provide information about the book (title, author, date of publication, etc.) and cite
the page number of quoted passages. This assignment is an important part of your
academic work for this class and the quality of the writing counts. Include a bibliography
at the end of the assignment documenting all sources including the assigned readings.
Please use one of the following formats for the bibliography: MLA, APA, or Chicago.
