From Rebellion to Revolution

You will write a 700-800 word review of From Rebellion to Revolution by Eugene Genovese. You must confine your review to these length requirements.

The paper must be in 12-point Times New Roman font and have 1-inch margins. Do not include a title page or bibliography/reference page. Rather, include the following full bibliographic information of the book at the top of the first page:
From Rebellion to Revolution: Afro-American Slave Revolts in the Making of the Modern World. By Eugene Genovese. (Baton Rouge: LSU Press, 1976. Pp. xxv, 200.) Reviewed by ____.

If your edition has a different date or number of pages, you may use what you have as long as you follow this title format. Use parenthetical citations when including direct quotes or paraphrasing/summarizing passages from the book. Use direct quotes very sparingly and do not include block quotes of any kind. The Book Review must follow current Turabian format.

The Book Review must contain the following:
• An introduction of the book (first paragraph);
• An identification of the main argument or theme (last sentence of the first paragraph that will serve as your thesis);
• An organized and detailed analysis of the book’s primary argument or theme (body of the paper); and
• A conclusion (last paragraph).

Note: It is fine to give a short summary of the book, but the crux of the Book Review must be a critique or analysis of the book’s main argument or theme. The majority of this paper must be review, not summary. Also, your thesis statement must show the reader the direction you are going in your review. You must assess the strengths and weaknesses of the book within the review as well and briefly situate the author’s work within the overall literature.
