Here are the things you need to address in the process of writing your critical review. You should use the info below as a template for the review. This is not a book report, that is, it is not a recounting, nor a straight summary of the book, rather, it is an analysis of the overall book in historical context. The paper should be between 1,000-1,500 words, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt. font, cited in the Chicago Style with endnotes or footnotes. These are the formatting requirements, points will be deducted for not following.

Here is what the paper must address for full credit consideration:

  1. What is the background of the author/editor (Jensen)? How is this relevant to understanding the purpose of the book overall?
  2. What is the thesis of the book? How successful is the author/editor (Jensen) at getting his points across to the reader clearly and does the author ultimately prove what the thesis claims to show? Give factual examples of how and/or how not. Be sure to cite the Jensen text.
  3. In the process of doing steps one and two above, choose three of the journalists in the book and use them as examples in the review itself. This implies a brief discussion about each of the three journalists selected, their writings, the significance of the issue addressed, and what happened as a result of his/her reporting. Please choosean author from the first third, middle third, and last third of the 20th century (spreading out your choices from across the book).
  4. Do you think that investigative reporting and a free press are important to a democracy? Why or why not?
  5. Finally, give an example of a contemporarymuckraking journalist and the issue they address, one NOT included in the Jensen book, and one active writing in the past decade. In other words, if the book continued, choose someone whom you think would be included in its ensuing chapters. What is socially/politically compelling about the topic and what possible solutions are offered in the current example you chose? What role do these people play in the construction of our history? If you need ideas for finding contemporary muckrakers, see our work at www.projectcensored.org(Links to an external site.)
  6. Closing remarks/conclusion. BE SURE the paper is properly cited in Chicago Style(Links to an external site.), endnotes or footnotes (note style, not bibliography style).

Please e mail any questions or concerns asap.

Thank you.
