Compare-Contrast Essay: Directions Answer by writing a brief analytical essay. The essay should have a clear thesis comparing two sources supported by properly cited primary source evidence. The essay should be 500-750 words. The essay format should be doublespaced, using a standard size font and margins (12-point Times New Roman font with standard 1-inch margins). Please see the Chicago Style for guidelines on citing and formatting. The first page of the assignment should include your name, class, and the number of the question you are answering.

The question I need to answer: Compare 23.1 Winston Churchill, The Battle of Omdurman, from The River War (1899) and 23.2 John A. Hobson, Criticism of Imperialism, from Imperialism (1902). How does the author describe the differences between the Western conquerors and the inhabitants of the countries which were conquered? Additional Instructions and Information The most important thing for you to do in your paper is to present an argument as a specific answer to the question given above. Your paper must also focus on the primary source texts. This means that you should read your document carefully, think about it, and form your own point of view about the topic. Once you have your argument, you will want to organize your essay as follows: an introduction, supporting or body paragraphs, and a conclusion. In the introduction be sure to clearly state your thesis statement. The thesis statement clearly states your argument and is the central idea that organizes the rest of your essay. In the supporting or body paragraphs, you will prove your thesis statement and support your argument with evidence. Be sure to start each paragraph with a topic sentence that introduces the main point of the paragraph. Clearly explain to the reader how the evidence you provide supports your argument. All evidence you use in your paper, whether directly quoted or paraphrased, must be cited properly. For this assignment, please use the Chicago Style for citing sources. Do not use any outside sources (encyclopedias, internet); this assignment assesses your critical thinking and writing skills. Evidence should be based on course material only, especially primary sources.
