You should be working on this assignment over the course of the semester as you read Marks’s book, “The Origins of the Modern World.” Ideally you should prepare this on your word processor, saving your file frequently, then submit it by copying and pasting content into the submission window.
Compose a book report for Robert Mark’s The Origins of the Modern World. The book report must be at least 750 words in length and will include two sections:
1. A chapter by chapter summary of the contents of the book comprising at least two thirds of the book report. There should be individual chapter headings indicating the material that you are summarizing followed by brief summaries of the contents of that chapter.
2. A critique of the book as a whole. Evaluate the book. Was it effective? Was it coherent? Was it enjoyable? Why or why not? Which arguments in the book were convincing? Which arguments were not convincing? The length of the critique should be no more than one third the entire length of the book report and no less than 100 words.
