Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Scholarly Book Review: The final component of this course is for you to read the book, Becaria, Cesare (1764). An Essay on Crimes and Punishments:
and write a scholarly book review. For this assignment, you must cite at least five peer-reviewed articles, not books, in your review. Your scholarly book review must be between 2,250 to 2,700 words. For this assignment, you need to do more than merely provide a synopsis of the book.
Also, if a student fails to cite at least five peer-reviewed journal articles and include these in the references at the end of the book review, it will incur an automatic penalty of twenty points. Please keep in mind, this is an assignment that students are encouraged to work on throughout the semester; therefore, it is inadvisable to wait until the last minute to begin your book review essays. Please follow the writing rubric to understand how you are required to write the paper. You can find the rubric in the Start Here and Resources section of the course.
