write my assignment 31314

write an 8-10 page paper citing at least 10 scholarly sources.

In this assignment, I will be looking for:

  • A strong thesis.
  • The various historical arguments, and evidence that you understand them thoroughly.
  • Good use and incorporation of evidence to make your point.
  • Clear cohesive, argumentative writing.
  • Creativity and Critical Thought in your argument. That is, you should use your readings to come up with an argument that is not obvious or derived solely from the readings, but combines the readings in a new way.        

2) ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY – I expect you to use a mix of scholarly sources including monographs, articles in edited volumes, and journal articles from peer edited scholarly journals (like those on JSTOR); you will need to take advantage of hard copies from the library and online resources.

Ultimately, you will summarize this reading in an eight-item annotated bibliography. Begin the bibliography with a paragraph detailing how you will approach your research question; that is, what is the broader question, what is the aspect of the question that will be your focus, and what do you think your thesis might be. Then include a detailed annotation for each of eight pieces that you have read to this point, including the way that you see that piece fitting into your overall argument. For more on writing an annotated bibliography and examples, see the handout on blackboard.

In this assignment, each annotation should include

  • Bibliographic information, in Chicago Style
  • A good description of the reading, including the reading’s topicargumentevidence.
  • In order to help you understand the piece in the context of the project you are working on, it should also indicate how the piece relates to others that you have read for this topic. Does the author argue against or support another scholar’s conclusions? How do the works differ?
  • Your evaluation of the work. Do you think the author presents good evidence for the argument? Do you agree with his or her conclusions? How might this work be useful to your project (or not)?

In addition, I will be looking at the whole assignment for the following:

  • The paragraph telling me how you will approach your argument. This should be in line with the sources you have presented.
  • Eight Scholarly Secondary Sources.
  • Variety in terms of journals, books, and chapters in edited volume.
  • At least some newer scholarship (pieces written after 2000).
  • Sources that are appropriate in terms of time and place. If you are working on Adolf Hitler, a book called Adolf Hitler and the New Germany would be great. One called Dictators through History is not relevant.

3) PAPER – Finally, write an 8-10 page paper citing at least 10 scholarly sources.

In this assignment, I will be looking for:

  • A strong thesis.
  • The various historical arguments, and evidence that you understand them thoroughly.
  • A good use and incorporation of evidence to make your point.
  • Clear cohesive, argumentative writing.
  • Creativity and Critical Thought in your argument. That is, you should use your readings to come up with an argument that is not obvious or derived solely from the readings, but combines the readings in a new way. i need to have the turnitin report and the report also 

1. The economic consequences of World War I for Europe

here are the sources for the paper: 

Annotated Bibliography 

“Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933.” 2017. Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933, August, 1. 

To begin with, one of the biggest causes that happen after World War I was the Great Depression. Starting with the Great Depression was my first thought because it affected all Europe and happened after the war. The economic state of Europe was at its worse when soldiers where back from war, majority of soldiers couldn’t find work After World War I the Great Depression started in the early 1920s and lasted until the 1930s. Even though the Great Depression started in United States it was like a domino effect taking over in all of Europe. As the stock prices fell the Great Depression effected income/revenue tax, profits, and international trade. In certain places the Great Depression effected the population more than others. Countries that had production, farming was hit hard especially. Since the economic state of Europe was in bad shape the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 (AAA) was created from President Franklin D Roosevelt New Deal. This act was put into place to increase agriculture purchasing power to raise revenue. The act helped people through programs, farmers, adults, etc.  

de Sanchez, J. A. M. 1922. “Further Economic Consequences of the Peace.” Foreign Affairs 

First and foremost, this source is an academic review of “America and the Balance Sheet of Europe” by J.A.M de Sanchez. Sanchez breaks every part of the information that’s in the book 

Thomas 2

and elaborates on his understanding of that particular part of the book and he lets the readers know if he agrees with that part or not. Helps me further understand the author and what message they are trying to get across. Within this review de Sanchez states that the authors Bass and Moulton agrees with a big amount of taxation given to the people is a burden. It depends on where the country is finically. He compares this with the country Czechoslovakia and how they give this program of heavy taxation to “balance” the economic system but the same people that wanted the program was the first one that saw it wasn’t possible for the counties’ economic state. In places like France when they were doing expansion for the country receipts showed that tax got higher. During that time imports and exports had drastically decreased.  

Dooley, Stephan Richard. 2005. Between the Wars. [Electronic Resource] : Economic Seeds of

World War II. The Europeans. New York, N.Y. : Films Media Group, [2005], c1997.  

Secondly, this electronic video recording from Stephan Richard Dooley sets the tone talking about the way World War I change the landscape of Europe which is one of the causes that lead to World War II. Within this video recording Dooley mentions the 1929 stock market crash. Also known as the Wall Street Crash of 1929, it was one of the worse market crashes in history and its after effects lead to more crashes. Because of mass production in the cities the farmers had to find other ways of making money. Causing people to sell their stocks all at once. Production was at a stop, and people were in debt. Furthermore, Dooley talks about the Treaty of Versailles harsh consequences targeting Germany as the fall guy to pay back the allies. The Treaty of Versailles was supposed to bring peace but cause inflation in Germany and open the door to Fascism. Fascism was rising but not just in Germany but also to countries/nations like 

Thomas 3

Italy, Spain. The Munich Agreement among the nations of Germany, Great Britain, France, and Italy. Sometimes referred to as the Munich Betrayal. On September 29th, 1938 was an agreement that Germany would get a territory of Czechoslovakia. This agreement was put in place to avoid war by the Germans under the rule of Hitler, which ultimately didn’t last.  

“Figure 2f From: Irimia R, Gottschling M (2016) Taxonomic Revision of Rochefortia Sw.

(Ehretiaceae, Boraginales). Biodiversity Data Journal 4: E7720. 

Furthermore, this source has a report that observes the financing and economic issues in the wars throughout the United States. Also looking into the economic state like tax policies, economic growth and decrease, budget of the country etc. Because of that it’s like a guild of how countries can learn from their economic mistakes and finically grow. By “higher taxes, reductions in other government spending, government borrowing from the public, or money creation”. Higher taxes will work in places where they are thriving well. In other countries where the population is barely making money to support themselves and added taxation would be a crime. Reduction in other government spending would help that country more because that money could be put into somewhere else. This source provides because of war government must put more spending into military where it wasn’t there before. Is barrowing money from the public a well solution to financial problem? 

Keynes, John Maynard. The End of Laissez-faire: The Economic Consequences of the Peace.

ReadaClassic, 2010.

For instance, this book is a great source to include in my paper because the author is a well-known economist within both world wars. He was present at the Versailles peace conference, there along I get an account from a person that was present when the nations were coming up with the treaty. Part of this book Keynes has a theory that the “Good Deal” administration by President Woodrow Wilson has some cause that leads to some of the consequences of the economics of Europe. Also, Keynes is in favor of the Laissez-Faire policy. He provides a background of what Laissez-Faire policy is and what it means to him. He believes that the government should be “Hands Off” and let the people deal with the market and the government should only be involved with programs to help the people. Programs like unemployment, health care, etc. Within this policy Keynes feel that’s how the country will progresses.  

Lampe, John R. 2014. “Stabilizing Southeastern Europe, Financial Legacies and European

Lessons from the First World War.” 

Moreover, this source is exactly what I need because it provides firsthand accounts about the way economic state of Europe was after World War I. After this, the paper talks about the economic consequences of WWI, Lampe focuses on Southeastern Europe. Often when people are talking about Europe, they only think about the main party’s involved like Germany, France, Great Britain, United States etc. people forget about Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Yugoslav. The changes that the regions had to undergo because of WWI. Because of this I am able to get the full understanding of all Europe rather than the popular regions people are used to. Lampe provides visual representation and statistics to his audience to get a better understanding of the 

Thomas 5

landscape of the countries. Because of that the readers are able to notice the changes of these geographical borders and how they have change after WWI. The way he goes in depth with focusing on individual events that occurred but relating those events as a whole for Europe.  

“The Impact of the First World War and Its Implications for Europe Today.” Heinrich Böll


In addition, in my earlier sources they provided me with economic consequences of Europe after WWI, but this source goes a little bit further into the political, state, ethnic consequences that are still present today. WWI didn’t just have economic implications but give birth to new empires, created world powers and destroyed empires, frequent migrations among the populations. Allies that was once made didn’t last. After WWI Western Europe thought mostly about their political stand and relations with other nations. Next this source talks about the death toll and men left paralyzed because of the war, it stated “An entire Generation of young men was wiped away” (Par 11). On a lighter note the first war did have some positive changes that resulted because of it. Positive changes like new medicine, weapons, military strategies, politics, new social ideas and giving birth to women’s rights.  

Potter, Edmund D. 2018. “World War I Debts.” 

For instance, it’s no clear-cut answer who caused World War I but its commonly said that Germany played a huge rule in causing the war to start. The allies wanted to send a message to the other countries when they made Germany took the blame for starting WWI. Ultimately making Germany sign the Treaty of Versailles to pay reparations for their actions of the war.

Roughly WWI cost 150 billion dollars. It was expensive for this war to happen and after the war the countries would soon realize this. Germany couldn’t keep up with the payments and the United States had to step in and loan Germany money to keep up with the payments. Even with the help of the United States Germany still couldn’t continue to pay. Because of the Great Depression the United States couldn’t continue to lend Germany money they had to start using their money somewhere else. Decisions that the United States were taking to better the Economy was actually making it worse.
