I am in need of your expertise in writing another 7 page academic paper. This project will be similar to the past papers you have written at 7 pages in length.
Below is the requirements of the paper:
In the paper, which is to be 7 pages double-spaced pages each, you are to analyze and critique the assigned class readings, plus two additional academic journal articles. The papers should be a review of this literature, with some critical analysis on your part: is this theory/scholarly idea or research…. useful? Clear? Outdated? Missing something? We use the APA style manual, and your list of sources should include the ones from the syllabus you used plus the additional journal articles. Wikipedia and dictionary sources are not appropriate – you can use to supplement your understanding of something, but not cited as a source. Be sure to cite sources within your paper as well as at the end – this is necessary in any paper, but when you are reviewing literature it is especially important to cite the scholars you are discussing.
Topic of paper:
Paper #1: Development
What is development? This is really the essence of this first paper, challenging you to consider the various emphases that have characterized the field (for instance, development as purely economic development is a strong theme), considering what concepts such as developed and developing country, quality of life, basic needs, distribution of wealth, etc. mean. What theories make the most sense to you? Why? Are any in need of revising or abandoning? You should demonstrate a clear understanding of the literature we have read, and at the same time show at the least the beginning of an articulation of your view – it might be evolving!
