Critical Book on Guns, Germs and Steel

Question 4372 Guns, Germs, and Steel Critical Book Critique

This is a large part of my grade for college-level History. I have to write a detailed book critique for
“Guns, Germs, and Steel” by Jared Diamond. I have an instruction sheet from my professor which can
reveal exactly what he’s expecting out of this. It has to reveal a thesis, and other details. I’m looking for
someone who can write a good paper for me at a fair price.

Question 4373 The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the immediate cause of World War I. But the events
that led to the Great War go further back into the nineteenth century. As with the Boxer Rebellion of
1900, nationalism, imperialism, and militarism all played a part. Analyze how the forces of nationalism,
imperialism, and militarism irrevocably led to World War I. Pay particular attention to the rise of Pan-
Slavism in Eastern Europe and the corresponding rise of nationalism in German-speaking states. Analyze
how the alliance system contributed to the ultimate outbreak of war. Then analyze the events that drew
the United States into World War I. Clearly discuss why America first remained neutral between1914-
1917. What role did ethnicity play in America’s neutrality? Then identify and analyze the specific events
that led to America’s entrance into the war. Evaluate America’s contribution to the war effort and to
what extent America’s entry contributed to the end of the war. Finally, analyze the events that led to
the defeat of the Treaty of Versailles. What effect did this have on America’s role in the world during the

1920s and 1930s? Pay particular attention to the role of President Woodrow Wilson both during and
after the war, in particular, his efforts to establish the League of Nations. This paper must be four
double-spaced pages in length (not including the References page) and utilize no less than four
academic quality sources. Margins should be no more than one inch (right and left) and the essay should
be composed in an appropriate font and size. Sources must be documented and cited using APA format.

highways. What sort of impact may they have had on local communities? Compare these images to the
first document. 3. Why was highway development seen as so important after World War II? In what
ways could highways facilitate the growth of suburbs and new commercial development 4. What tactics
were used to forestall minorities from moving into white neighborhoods and the new suburbs? To what
degree were non-whites able to move away from older and segregated neighborhoods? 5. Who, and in
what ways, did most highway development benefit? Can you make any connections regarding housing
development, road construction, and exclusionary housing policies?

Question 4378 Native Americans and American History

U.S. History to 1870 DIscussion DUE @ 8PM TODAY April 19, 2018. Native Americans have long been

Question 4383 Analyzing the American Revolution

Discussion, Among historians, there have generally been two main interpretations of the Revolution.
The first, as espoused by scholars like Gordon Wood, argues that the revolution is “the most important
event in American history.” In their view, the Revolution was a watershed moment that completely
transformed American society. Meanwhile, scholars like Bernard Bailyn have argued that the ideological
origins of the revolution were actually based on much older ideas, and the American Revolution thus
didn’t herald in a new era nor was it a transformative moment. Please write at least one paragraph
explaining which interpretation of the Revolution you find more convincing. Provide support/evidence
for your choice. Due today May 3, 2018 @ 11:00 PM (eastern time).

Question 4384

How were Sciencists influenced and impacted by Technological change or advanced in
knowledge
No writing required as I already did in my weekly post. Need help in Organizing it in to 8 pages. My
group is Scientists. Attached is my weekly post. You can just copy and past but use transitions and
organize them to match one thing to talk about as required from Instructor requirement below.
———————————————————————– Your final paper will be a case study of how a single
group (men, women, scientists, philosophers, leaders, etc.) over the course of history (from ancient time
through the 20th century) were influenced by the changes in technology or advances in knowledge. In
other words, you will trace the story of your chosen group over time, illustrating how they were
influenced and impacted by technological changes or advances in knowledge.In 8-10 pages (not
including the title page and bibliography) write a succinct, grammatically correct, well supported paper
that begins with a strong thesis statement (your principal argument) and traces the changes that
occurred to your chosen group over time. You may include the content from your weekly posts but you
MAY NOT cut and paste your posts into the paper. Synthesize them into descriptive paragraphs. Make
sure you use strong transitions; sentences that carry one thought into the next and show a connection
or correlation. I am not looking for a litany of disjointed statements that simply list changes your chosen
group experienced but rather a narrative that traces the evolution of your group over time. Be sure to
discuss the technologies or advances in knowledge that most impacted them and perhaps how those
same changes acted differently on other groups. Your paper must be formatted in Chicago Turabian
format, include a cover page and bibliography, and use footnotes.
Question 4385 Shay’s Rebellion

U.S. History to 1870 In 1787, a former Continental Army officer named Daniel Shays led an armed
rebellion in Massachusetts against the newly formed American republic. Men from several western
counties, many of them Revolutionary war veterans from leading families, violently opposed the high
taxes levied by the legislature to pay war debts. It was an ironic turn of events. In the 1760s, the British –
looking for ways to pay their debt for the Seven Years War – decided to tax the colonists to increase
British revenue. As we know, this led to the American Revolution. In the 1780s, the colonists were now
in control of their own government, and – looking for ways to pay their debt from the American
revolution and the new republic – settled on taxing the colonists. Colonists in western counties argued
that they weren’t represented in the eastern-dominated legislature, and they rebelled. Shays rebellion
would end relatively quickly, but what is interesting is that they viewed the new American government
in the same light as the old British one. They called it “tyrannical,” and claimed “whenever any
encroachments are made either upon the liberties or properties of the people, if redress cannot be had
without, it is virtue in them to disturb government.” In this blog post, address this history in at least 2
paragraphs in your response to the following prompt: Was the Revolution truly a revolution, or simply a
shift of power from one ruling class to another? Address Shay’s Rebellion and relevant evidence.
Articulate a specific position (perspective, thesis/hypothesis) imaginatively, taking into account the
complexities of an issue. Fully integrate alternate, divergent, or contradictory perspectives or ideas.
Assignment DUE Saturday, May 5, 2018 @ 10:00 PM (Eastern Time).

Question 4387

The Civil War continues to be a powerful story that has never lost its appeal to the general public
The Lessons of Unit IV present the build-up, explosion, and aftermath of an event that most would rank
as among the most consequential in American History. The Civil War continues to be a powerful story

Question 4389 Class and American Life

Discussion, Class and American Life DUE TODAY, MAY 10, 2018 @ 11:30 PM (EASTERN TIME). IF FOR ANY
REASON YOU FEEL YOU CANNOT COMPLETE THE ASSIGNMENT ON TIME PLEASE DO NOT PLACE A BID.
THANK YOU! One of the most significant political debates during the presidency of Andrew Jackson
concerned re-chartering the Bank of the United States. In his veto of the bank’s charter, Jackson railed
against monied interests in American politics. After analyzing Jackson’s Veto Message (Links to an
external site, http://www.americanyawp.com/reader/democracy-in-america/andrew-jacksons-veto-
message-against-re-chartering-the-bank-of-the-united-states-1832/). IN A FEW PARAGRAPHS, Discussthe role of class in early American history. Was class a major factor in early American life and politics?

Question 4390 How the war began

One of the things we always discuss in my face-to-face classes with regards to the Spanish-American
War is how the war began. The explosion of the battleship Maine was the catalyst for the US going to
war in Spain and thus acquiring an empire. However, while Spain was blamed for the explosion of the
ship, it was not actually at fault. My question to you all is whether it matters? Do the reasons for going
for war actually matter or do the ends justify the means? Most people do not question nowadays how
we have Puerto Rico, or Guam, or the leasing of Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, yet these changes were the
result of the Spanish-American War. More men died of fever and disease than the actual war itself, and
the US then found itself in a guerilla-style insurrection war in the Philippines. Again, do the ends justify
the means? Or if the reasons for war are obfuscated, is the war in and of itself unjustified? I realize this
is a complicated question. I am asking you to answer the very best you can. Remember, if you are
looking to do well you want to demonstrate you have read and understood the text. (Davidson, pages
431-438)

Question 4391 Attack Ads of the Antebellum Era

Please ensure to read directions and complete assignment on time and correctly. Due Monday, May 14,
2018 @ 9:00 AM (Eastern Time). The assignment is a Blog Post no longer than one page. One of the
main focuses of this week’s readings was the development of political parties and political life and
discourse of the Early Republic and Antebellum era, which is roughly the period from 1789 to 1860.
Reason.tv has made “modern” attack ads by using direct quotes from John Adams and Thomas
Jefferson. In public comments, political rivals frequently attacked not only their opponents credibility
and policies, but their racial heritage, their manliness, their religious principles, and even their wives and
families. After watching the link “Attack Ads in the Antebellum Era, In their Own Words” address the
following prompt: What is the primary political legacy of the Early Republic and Antebellum era on
contemporary American life? And in what ways are American political campaigns today different from
that era, and in what ways are they similar? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_zTN4BXvYI
Question 4392 Civil Rights: Then and Now
In the 1960s, the civil rights movement was at its height. Congress passed the Civil Rights Act and Voting
Rights Act in 1964 and 1965, which first outlawed segregation in public places and dismantled laws that
previously had prevented people from voting based on their race. Basically, these two laws finally
buffered the 14th and 15th amendments, both of which were passed during Reconstruction. This
information is covered in Chapter 29 in further detail. The United States was not the only place
experiencing a civil rights movement. South Africa, Northern Ireland, India, etc. are just a few places
going through the same thing. During graduate school, I lived in Northern Ireland for a semester. It is a
province of the United Kingdom that for many years sustained a long-term conflict between the majority
Protestant population and the minority Catholic populace. Catholics often complained that they were
discriminated against in jobs, education, housing, and unfairly targeted by police. Does that sound
familiar to Americans? It should. Stick with me here, because I have a point, but I need to explain a few
things to get there. This conflict between Catholics and Protestants went on for years. Conflict is a nice
word for war, because that is essentially what it was. For the better part of 30 years, 3,000 people were
killed (in a place that is the size a few Chicago suburbs put together, so it’s a significant number) and
generations were affected by violence. In the 1990s, though, most of the groups on both sides (not all)
sought peace and a comprehensive peace agreement was agreed upon by a huge landslide vote. Part of
the peace agreement addressed a long-standing grievance about Catholics not trusting the police force
that was overwhelmingly (95%) Protestant. Catholics simply did not join. In the years that followed the
agreement, the police force, which had been highly militarized during the conflict (understandably so)
began to appear less militarized and more like a community type of police, and heavily recruited
Catholics and other minorities to join the force. Since then the force is much more reflective of the populace. It must be noted that not everyone sits around and sings kumbaya now.  However,
sometimes you have to fake it till you make it, and real progress has been made. (My master’s thesis
was on this conflict so I am writing simply from memory and knowledge of events.) So here is the bridge:
Clearly in this country we are experiencing a similar gulf between minority citizens and police.
Depending on the color of your skin, the neighborhood you live in, your socio-economic status, our
perception of law enforcement seems to vary based on our differed experiences. While our police forces
tend to be more diverse than that of Northern Ireland, they are still not always reflective of the neighborhoods they patrol. (Please note I am not necessarily arguing that they must be; I am simply
stating what exists.) In this discussion board, therefore, I would like you to engage in an exchange of
dialogue about race, policing and community relations. What are the demographics of your local
town/neighborhood? (I am not asking you to look at the census, but just simply comment on what you
see.) Would you describe your community as diverse, and along with that, I suppose you need to
describe what you perceive as diversity. What is the socio-economic status (if you feel comfortable
talking about it) of your community? Furthermore, discuss your perception of police in your
neighborhood and in general. How would you characterize your interactions with police in your local
community? How much do you think those interactions have affected how you view the issues of law
enforcement and community relations in a wider context? President Obama, on his way out of office,
opined that we are not as divided as we appear. Do you agree with this statement? Or has the progress
since the 1960s been more superficial in nature and we remain deeply segregated and racially divided? I
would like for us to engage in dialogue on this topic in a way that allows us to share our viewpoints,
whatever they may be. This is controversial in nature, but these are the very topics deserving discussion,
and if we cannot do it in an academic setting, then where and when can we? I am very much looking
forward to reading your responses.

Question 4393

Question 4394 Westward Expansion

“American Progress,” John Gast, 1872 During the 19th century, “Manifest Destiny” referred to the
widely held belief that Americans were fated to expand beyond the Eastern seaboard and “civilize” the
entire North American continent. Do you believe that westward expansion was inevitable due to the
young nation’s economic growth and population size, or do you think the concept of manifest destiny
was simply a way of masking economic and political motives for expansion and simply a large scale
territory grab across North America? Explain the reasons for your interpretation in your post. This is part
of a discussion. The assignment is due tomorrow, May 17, 2018, @ 8:00 PM (Eastern Time).

Question 4395 U.S. History 1870

Research Essay Assignment DUE Sunday, May 27, 2018. @ 11:00AM (Eastern Time). Your final paper
should be 4 pages in length. Your paper should be double-spaced with standard 12 point font and one-
inch margins. Your paper should include a title page as well as a bibliography; neither the title page nor
the bibliography should be counted towards fulfilling the length requirement. Your paper should include
in-text citations in either the MLA or APA format. An excellent guide to citations is available through the
Purdue Online Writing Lab. You may choose any topic related to American history in the period from the
seventeenth century through Reconstruction. It is very important for you to choose a topic that is

contentious or open to debate. For the assignment, you will be asked to consider multiple viewpoints.
Your essay should include a thesis statement and evidence to support your thesis statement. A thesis
statement is an assertion that you are seeking to prove. A thesis statement must be open to debate and
not a simple statement of fact. You are required to use source material to defend your argument or
thesis. I would like you to find a minimum of 5 sources related to your topic. These sources should
include both primary sources and secondary sources. A primary source is a document written by
someone who actually participated in the historic event being discussed. A secondary source is a
document written by a scholar or historian with no direct experience of the event discussed. Your
sources may be books, articles, or online materials. Also, I ask that you use one source related to your
topic from a discipline outside of history. For example, you could use an article from a political science
journal, a sociology journal, an economics journal, etc. Many scholars outside of the field of history have
valuable insight to offer on historical events. JSTOR, a collection of journal articles available online
through Hatch Library, is a very valuable tool for locating sources from a variety of disciplines. For this
assignment, it is crucial that you evaluate sources that offer multiple and varied perspectives on your
topic. In order to develop a full and well-rounded understanding of any topic, it is crucial to examine
varied perspectives. For example, if you were to argue that the Constitution represented a positive and
progressive revision of the United States government, it is important to include some evaluation of the
opposing viewpoint. You would need to include an analysis of the arguments that were made against
the ratification of the Constitution. Your essay should be well written and free of grammatical and
spelling errors. Please proofread your essay before submitting it. Evaluate and apply diverse
perspectives to complex subjects within the humanities in the face of multiple and even conflicting
positions (i.e. cultural, disciplinary, and ethical). Evaluate and synthesize information from multiple
sources and draw conclusions by combining examples, facts, or theories from more than one field of
study or perspective. Articulate a specific position (perspective, thesis/hypothesis) imaginatively, taking
into account the complexities of an issue. Limits are acknowledged. Others’ points of view are
synthesized. Fully integrate alternate, divergent, or contradictory perspectives or ideas.

Question 4396 Comparive Essay

Students, please view the “Submit a Clickable Rubric Assignment” in the Student Center. Instructors,
training on how to grade is within the Instructor Center. Assignment 2: Project Paper – Comparative
Essay Due Week 7 and worth 200 points This “Assignment 2” writing assignment is a comparative essay
focused on topics encountered in our HUM 111 class. The project will be based on research but will
reflect your views and interpretation of the topic. This project is designed to help you stretch your mind
and your abilities as an organized, innovative, and critical thinker. If approached properly, it should also
be fun! Choose one (1) of the topics from the list of topic choices below. Read the topic carefully. Write
a three to four (3-4) page paper (750-1,000 words) that follows instructions and covers each part of the
topic. (The title page and References list do not get included in this word count). Note: Your instructor
may require you to submit your topic choice for approval before the end of Week 5. For the topic you
choose: Establish a clear thesis about your topic as part of the introductory paragraph (often the thesis
is the last thing one determines after doing the basic research and outline; however it will be placed in
the first paragraph of your paper). This is a comparative essay. Comparison approached properly will

require some critical thinking on your part. Use a point-by-point approach for the essay. That means, if
comparing subject A with subject B, don’t do the first half of the essay on subject A and then the second
half on subject B–that will seem like two (2) separate essays and comparisons will tend to get lost.
Instead, you should be mentioning both subjects in most of your paragraphs as you compare them
throughout the essay. Comparisons will identify similarities as well as contrasts. Do not try to do
everything on your two (2) subjects. You should end up narrowing your focus to a few insights and
issues about the subjects being compared. And, from those fairly specific points of comparison, you will
develop a thesis and glean some lessons. Follow closely the instructions below for your specific topic.
Include a concluding paragraph at the end. This paragraph will, in some way, refer back to the thesis
established in your first paragraph, since now you have demonstrated and supported it. It may be here
that you also include your observations relating your study to the modern workplace or society (see
your topic). Try to finish with flair! Use at least three (3) good quality academic sources, with one (1)
source being the class text. Note: Wikipedia and other similar Websites do not qualify as academic
resources. You are highly encouraged to use the Resource Center tab at the top of your Blackboard
page. Topic Choices – Choose just one (1) of the topics below: Qualities of the Hero: Comparing
Gilgamesh and Odysseus. Write an essay comparing these two (2) heroic figures from ancient epics of
different cultures, especially focusing your analysis on the sources about their encounters with
monsters: Gilgamesh encounters the monster guarding the forest, Humbaba, in Tablets 3-5 of the Epic
of Gilgamesh (see http://www.ancienttexts.org/library/mesopotamian/gilgamesh/; scroll down to the
Tablet links; think of “Tablet” numbers like chapter numbers).” Odysseus encounters Polyphemus the
Cyclops in Book 9 of The Odyssey (see http://www.theoi.com/Text/HomerOdyssey9.html; from line 105
to the end). Your paper should: a) Compare Gilgamesh and Odysseus as to their heroic qualities, noting
similarities and differences, using specific examples from the epics. b) Summarize what this indicates
about differences between ancient Mesopotamian and Greek cultures in their ideals and expectations.
c) From this comparison, suggest ways that current cultural ideals and expectations shape modern
notions about role models and heroes. Confucius and Aristotle on Virtue. Write an essay comparing
these two (2) ancient thinkers on the concept of virtue or good ethical character and conduct. Stay
focused on the issue; keep any biographical or other information short or limited. As much as possible,
analyze their writings (in translation, of course), using Confucius’ Analects (at
http://classics.mit.edu/Confucius/analects.html ) and Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics (at
http://classics.mit.edu/Aristotle/nicomachaen.html ). Your paper should: a) Compare the teachings of
Confucius and Aristotle on what constitutes virtue or good ethical character and conduct, noting
similarities and differences in specific ideas or emphasis. b) Consider what your findings suggest about
differences between ancient Chinese and ancient Greek culture. c) From this comparison, suggest ideas
of virtue that can apply to ethics in a modern setting, such as a diverse workplace. Comparing Sculptures
of Ancient India and Greece. Write an essay comparing the way gods and humans were depicted in
sculpture in ancient India and Greece, and identify the cultural values and ideals that these art works
reflect in each case. Your paper should: a) Using specific examples, compare the way gods and people
were depicted in the sculptures of ancient India and Greece, noting similarities and differences. b)
Identify the cultural values and ideals that these art works reflect for each society. c) From this
comparison, suggest a modern situation of artistic expression and the ways it reflects or counters
prevailing cultural values. Comparing Ancient Skeptics. Write an essay comparing Lucretius and Wang

Chong (=Wang Ch’ung), skeptical philosophers of ancient Rome and China. They were skeptical about
popular religious and spiritual beliefs and widely-held superstitions. Lucretius was an Epicurean
philosopher of Roman culture (Chapter 6). Wang Ch’ung was a thinker in ancient Chinese culture
(Chapter 7). For Lucretius, focus on Book 5 of his On the Nature of Things as found at
http://johnstoniatexts.x10host.com/lucretius/lucretius5html.html (good helpful commentary at the end
of this web page). For Wang Ch’ung (=Wang Chong), focus on the segments of his On Spirits as found at
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Gems_of_Chinese_Literature/Wang_Ch‘ung-On_Spirits . a) Using
examples from their writings, compare these two (2) thinkers on their views about specific subjects and
on their approach in explaining and expressing their skepticism. b) From this comparison, identify
popular beliefs in each culture that seem similar and those that seem different. c) From this comparison,
suggest any modern situation in which materialist skeptics confront spiritual and religious beliefs, and
comment on the considerations of free expression and cultural respect. Comparing Ancient Male Rulers.
Take any two (2) of these rulers and write an essay comparing them: Ramses II, Shihuangdi, Constantine,
Ashoka, Pericles, or Charlemagne. Select rulers from different cultures. You may also propose (for
approval or not) a ruler not listed. Avoid lengthy quoting or lengthy close paraphrasing from
biographical sources. Make it YOUR comparative analysis. Your paper should: a) Compare the two (2)

The American victory in the Revolutionary War created a new nation whose founding fathers hoped
would be a model of republican democracy unmatched in the history of the world. The men tasked with
developing the government system and governing documents for this new nation recognized the
incredible potential for positive growth, with a flourishing economy, overseen by a well-educated and
well-intentioned citizenry. However, most of the founders believed that in order to be successful, such a
country must be governed by men of high character with certain civic virtues who would put the good of
the nation above their own individual desires or interests. For this discussion board, please first read the
excerpts and quotes provided in the document “Discussion Board 2 Primary Documents.” These
documents were written by some of our nation’s founding fathers and great thinkers before, during, and
after the revolutionary period. Consider the virtues of civic and personal responsibility that these men
are espousing in these excerpts/quotes and post to the discussion board, what virtue espoused in the
documents you consider to be the most important in today’s society and why. doc attached.

crime, a corrupt socio-economic system, the greediness of kings, and distrust in technology. He also
closely analyzed the corruption of advisors to the king. These were all significant problems in sixteenth
century England. What are the significant problems in twenty-first century America? Just as More used
fiction to convey his ideas, you will be writing a short fiction script to depict the significant issues of
society in the twenty-first century. Do not merely list several problems with American society. Pick two
or three problems as a focus and then add details through setting, stage direction and dialogue that fully
explain why these things are problems. Talk about who has created the problems and who is affected by
them. Discuss how people are affected by these significant problems.
