it is a book review on James M. McPherson, Abraham Lincoln and the Second American Revolution (Oxford
University Press, 1992).
Papers should be no less than FIVE (but no more than seven) pages long (not including title and
references pages). Follow the APA style guidelines. You do not need to include an abstract. For your
title, use “Review of Abraham Lincoln and the Second American Revolution by James M. McPherson.”
I have to keep direct quotations to a minimum. Long and excessive quotations are to be strictly avoided, as they
suggest that you have not actually digested the material. Instead, paraphrase the author’s ideas in your
own words, using brief quotes only to illustrate arguments that you are making, not as substitutes for
your own analysis and interpretation. Parenthetical citations are required for all direct quotations.
