Methods Books For Purchase in UMSLBS (Proper Use of These Items Will Raise Grades by 40%)



We all suffer from the slip of the tongue sometimes in the use of the wrong verb in the spoken language (i.e. the conjugation of verbs in our heads) and in the written language of our letters, book reports, and research papers, e.g. “I should have went instead of I should have gone; or I should have came instead of I should have come. I should have began instead of I should have begun,” and so on, SUCH AS THE VERB TO SHOW AND ITS FORMS. One may improve upon this issue by purchasing one of the following books and carry it around at all times for consultation. Self-corrections will lead to more confidence and proper recitation responses in classes and in the writing of letters, term papers, and better performances in job interviews!:

2008:

ATTENTION STUDENTS:**Model Structure of Book Report Requirements

THE REQUIRED TYPED REPORT MODEL STRUCTURE CONSISTS of:

Part #1. Book Summary (3 pages: Thesis of Book or Binding Theme?).

OPPOSITIONAL THINKING!

Part #2. CRITICAL THEME: STATE THE THEME (MEANING: CENTRAL IDEA)--admirable/non-admirable-in book for creative analysis in own words (3 PAGES ONLY FOR COURSES 1061, 1062; grade will primarily be based on this #2 section of Report).

PART #3 Photocopied Review of Book (from Scholarly Journal Only!) at end of report with your opinion response (1 page or so). For example, Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, Journal of Roman Studies, Journal of Latin American Anthropology, Journal of the Economic and Social History of the Orient (E.G. Pulleyblank, “The Origins and Nature of Chattel Slavery in China,”1, Pt.2, 1958), Classical Philology, Historia, Culture and Tradition, Journal of African-American Religion, Religion and American culture, The Hymn, Eighteenth Century Studies, Journal of The History of Sexuality, Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture, Bryn Mawr Classical Review, African Political Science Review, The Economic History Review, Journal of Caribbean History, The American Historical Review, The Journal of American History, Journal of Development History, Slavery And Abolition, Social and Economic Studies, Transport, Hispanic Americas, History, Canadian Journal Of Latin America and Caribbean Studies, Journal of Religion in Africa, Journal of the History of Ideas, Journal of Interdisciplinary History, Signs: A Journal of Women's Studies ,Gender and History, Journal of Women's History, Liberian Studies Journal, Journal of African History(www.journal.cup.org), Journal of African Civilization, Journal of the Historical Society of Nigeria, America Historical Review, The Journal of Modern African Studies, Africa ,Cahier d'etudes Africaines, Africa, Man, American Anthropology, New Left, The Nation, The Journal of Southern History ,William & Mary Quarterly, The Black Scholar, and the Canadian Journal of African Studies are major scholarly journals that contain reviews of books on Africa, the diaspora, and other related books.

Do not to select an edited Book with essays with several scholars and/nor one in which You CANNOT FIND A REVIEW; see Retrospective Bk. Review Index to Scholarly Journals 1883-1974, Book Review Index l974-Present. This exercise makes plain the value of being critical of what one reads and the need to not just take someone else's notion about what is "truth." Remain vigilant to the "invention of tradition." Lots of so called "Truths," that one believes, have indeed been "invented." The Book Report will be assigned a grade and factored into your GPA with a NUMBER/LETTER GRADE. "I" Do Read Them!

Book Report Reading List (HISTORY, SOCIETY AND CULTURE)

History Plus History of Science

(***President-Elect Barack Obama Reads:

Steve Coll, Ghost Wars, on Afghanistan (no one has governed this country and region throughout history; just asked Alexander The Great in BCE times.)

Jeffrey D. Sachs, Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet, on global warning, environmental destruction, extreme poverty

***)


(****General Reading: Nepotism, Evolutionary Biology, "Tribalism," Genetics and Generation Regression (the family telephone number becomes inverted though the same number):

(1) Frank J.Sulloway, Born to Rebel: Birth Order, Family Dynamics and Creative Lives

(2) Adam Bellow, In Praise of Nepotism: A History of Family Enterprise From King David to George W. Bush

(3) Robin Fox, "Civilization and the Savage Mind" (forthcoming) and see his other books on anthropology, e.g. Kinship and Marriage )

“The Historian and the Twentieth Century,” DÆDALUS. (Spring 1971); undated essays on history.

General Reading:


Wallbank, T. Walter and Alastair M. Taylor and Nels M. Bailkey, Civilization Past and Present (Chicago: Scott, Foresman And Company,[1942],1962). I was taught from this “Civilization” text in 1955/56 as an undergraduate student at Kentucky State College (University in 1972). Note Historiography or the changing perspectives on history and how our mindsets can be effected by history: In this text, Egypt appears in chapter 1 as not part of Africa but as belonging to “The Ancient Near East” and to Western Civilization. Africa appears on pages 353-359 in the middle of this vast book as “Africa: The Neglected Continent, Obstacles to progress, ‘Primitive’ cultures of Black Africa,’ and the ignominious ‘Africa’s contact with the ancient world,’” etc. Adjust your seat belts, we do not teach this way any more about Africa anywhere in the world. The teaching of African history has dismantled these stereotypes in global history. See:

(1) "Black Pharoahs," National Geographic, February 2008, Vol. 213 No.2:P.34-



In order to see how African history dismantled university narratives and altered our vision in Western Civilization (e.g. William H. McNeill, The Rise of the West, 1963), see next
