And the reading list is attached

Try to use more reading and documentary

No outside sources

A paper in giving you a chance to show off your command of the material in the reading, lectures, and documentaries in a well-written and well-spelled, grammatical, polished and creative manner. I know (more or less! ) what I’ve said in lecture, so please don’t simply repeat it to me. And please don’t hesitate to disagree with me! You may think I’ve been too hard on Jimmy Carter, for example. Just explain why, if it’s relevant. And please do not simply repeat the documentaries or readings! Finally, while you should feel free to bounce ideas off each other as you think about the assignment, we will be watching for midterms that duplicate the wording of other midterms or sources, and I am obliged to report cases of plagiarism to the dean.

The Prompt

Hurray!A distinguished publisher has contacted you and asked you to submit a book proposal about the United States during “the seventies,” i.e., 1974 (post-Watergate)-1980 (the election of Ronald Reagan) for a general audience.If you write a good proposal, you will receive a hefty monetary advance. Among other things, it should take into account change and continuity in domestic policy (race, economy, family issues, etc.), domestic politics (Ford, Carter, Reagan’s election, etc.) popular culture (disco, TV, etc.), and foreign policy (the growing mistrust of the Soviet Union, the hostage crisis, etc.).It should emphasize a theme or themes (e.g., the loss of faith in government, the failure of leadership, the rise of a conservative mood, etc.).It can reflect your biases (e.g., conservatism was good, liberalism was bad; liberalism was good, conservatism was bad, etc.), as long as they are supported by evidence.(A good book indicates the author’s point of view!)It should include an overview/summary/synopsis, lively chapter titles, and engaging chapter descriptions. Figure on at least six chapters–or more if you need them.The proposal should show that you’ve read and digested Fault Lines, the reading links on the syllabus, and watched the documentaries and youtube clips.But your publisher wants to present the material differently from the way the authors of Fault Lines package theirs and to use your book as a competitor to Fault Lines.So don’t follow the authors of Fault Lines in titling your chapters “A Crisis of Legitimacy,” “A Crisis of Confidence,” “A Crisis of Identity,” A Crisis of Equality,” and “Turning Right”!

Have fun with this proposal! Go wild, for example, with chapter titles, and be creative!

Format: Single-spaced 12 point Times Roman, numbered pages, and a title page indicating your title for the book with a cover illustration, ideally.

Here are two descriptions of a book proposal that may also prove useful–though you don’t need to indicate your connections!
