Reference no: EM13852611

The Analysis Paper will be based on a book that you will choose from a list to be provided to you in Week 2. You are to identify the author's purpose for the book, its major themes, principles and concepts, and describe how those themes, principles, and concepts relate to the themes, principles and concepts presented by DuBrin in the text. More details can be found in the Instructor Notes in Week 2.

The paper should be submitted as a Microsoft Word document.

For this paper, you are to read one of the four books listed below. You are to identify the author's purpose for the book, its major themes, principles and concepts, and describe how those themes, principles, and concepts relate to the themes, principles and concepts presented by DuBrin in the text. In other words, I want to see at minimum four (4) concepts from your "chosen author" and how they to compare to Dubrin: where they agree and where they don't or if they don't. This is not a book review but rather it is an analysis of an outside reading, and the documentation of that reading's relatedness to the material you have been studying throughout this class.

The paper, submitted as a word document attachment, is to be completed in APA; it is to be between 6-10 pages no more no less (double- spaced pages, 12 point font) in length, and must include, at a minimum:

• an Abstract Heading and Section;
• an Introduction Heading and Section;
• a Discussion Heading and Section;
• a Conclusion Heading and Section and
• the Reference page.

For help and/or support with writing go to the "Resources" drop-down tool found within the "Global Navigation" tool (the Blue Banner) and click on either "Library or "Writing Assistance." And for guidelines regarding APA form and style, there is this wonderful site @ Purdue OWL APA that has examples and instructions.

2. The Purdue University OWL APA Style Guide - https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/10/ (Links to an external site.)

The book you select will need to be obtained from a local library, Webster's library, a bookstore, an online book service such as Amazon.com, or some other book source. I would encourage you to actually purchase the book so you can retain it for future purposes.
