Critical review of Culture War? The Myth of a Polarized America

The writing assignment is worth 10% of your final grade and will be discussed in greater detail during the
semester. The expected length of the paper is 4-5 double-spaced pages (1 inch margins and standard 10,
11, or 12 point font, such as Times New Roman). The paper is a critical review of the assigned book by
Morris Fiorina, Culture War? The Myth of a Polarized America. The paper is not to be a simply
summary of Fiorina s work, though a brief recitation of his argument is expect. Instead, the student is
expected to argue in agreement or disagreement with the main thesis and/or evidence presented by
Fiorina. Your paper will be evaluated on the quality and clarity of your argument, your ability to provide
evidence in support of your claims, and the general grammatical quality of the paper.
