Research Project

HISTORY 168 WRITING PROJECT

You will be required to research one of the topics listed below as a class writing project.  You may select whichever topic is of the greatest interest to you.  Topic descriptions are intentionally brief so as to allow you maximum attitude to develop it from a variety of viewpoints. Your work will be graded on the basis of the quality of your presentation:  not on how politically correct or popular a particular view may be.  Spelling, grammar, punctuation and the use of an accepted footnoting procedure will be included in determining the overall quality of your work.

Completed work, minus cover pages and addendum, should be between 4 and 5 double spaced typed pages.  Typing is not required, however handwritten work must be clearly legible.  Consider 2 legal size handwritten pages to equal one typed page.

 1. How is Iraq “another Vietnam”? How is it not?  Compare and contrast the political, societal, and military lessons learned (both good and bad) during and following the Vietnam war with the events the have transpired and current situation in Iraq. Consider the question from both the domestic and international perspectives.

 2. Some have contended that the American experience during the American Revolution is the same as the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War.  Compare and contrast the political, societal, and military situation (both good and bad) during and following the Vietnam war with the events that  transpired during our American revolution. Consider the question from both the domestic and international perspectives.

 3.  Other – you may choose to do another topic of your choice so long as it is related to a better understanding of some aspect of the Vietnam war from 1945-1975.  The instructor must approve the topic prior to beginning research.
