An essay is a specific literary genre, in which the writer formulates an arguable, debatable THESIS or central argument answering the assigned questions; supports it with EVIDENCE in the MAIN BODY; and offers final insights in the CONCLUSION. It must have a DISTINCT TITLE which serves as a brief summary of its content. Recommended length of essay: AT LEAST 7 SOLID PARAGRAPHS, with at least 1 paragraph on each revolution analyzed. NOTE: This is just a rough guideline for the amount of space given to each. It’s best to not simply discuss each revolution in succession; that would be like writing 4 miniessays or “reports,” not a proper essay. You should integrate your analysis of revolutions into a coherent, seamless interpretation around core themes or developments, fully answering both questions.
In developing a thesis based on your reading, you must address the following questions. The answers will constitute your thesis.
— What were the origins and main characteristics of the Atlantic and Industrial Revolutions from the late eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries?
— What legacies of the Atlantic and Industrial Revolutions are most important in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries? Why are they important?
Your essay must analyze the historical experiences of 3 OF THESE 4 REVOLUTIONS: Spanish American, French, Haitian, American. You MUST DISCUSS the Industrial Revolution. In answering the second question, focus on two major developments: ongoing aspects of economic transformation (including but not limited to communications revolutions) which are partly extensions of earlier industrialization; and the ongoing evolution of key democratic institutions. All receive treatment in “Ways of the World” which must be your main source, though walking
tours provide some supplementary material which can be briefly mentioned.
