Research Essay Proposal

By Jane Smith

 American Capitalism and Empire in Iraq, 2003 to 2008

This essay will be about the interrelationship between American capitalism and empire between 2003 and 2008. This topic is important because the American invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the policies promoted by the US after the invasion represent an important shift in American foreign policy and its global strategic priorities. The essay will show that the American invasion of Iraq signaled an aggressive new kind of 21st century American colonialism. The essay will be organized into four sections. The first part will provide a brief historical summary of the events that led-up to the American invasion of 2003. The next section will provide information about why the United States invaded Iraq in 2003 and what policies were implemented after that date. The third part will explain,
by referring to specific examples and events, why these American policies promoted a new kind of 21ist century colonialism. The final section will be a brief Conclusion where the central points of the essay will be reiterated. (word count: 165, not including title and name)



What is an annotated bibliography?

” An annotated bibliography is a list of bibliographical citations to books, articles, and documents you plan to use for your essay
” The correct bibliographical format should be used for the citations (see examples below)
” The UNB Library call number must be provided after each citation (see examples below). If you do not include the library call number, I will not read or accept your assignment without the UNB library call number.
” Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 70-100 words, but no fewer than 70 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph  this is the annotation. You must indicate the number of words in each citation, not counting the words in the book or article title themselves.
” The annotation should say why a particular book or article is relevant to your essay. You should provide the following information:

1. What sections of the book will you use and why (certain chapters or sections? If so, why? For what?)
2. What will be the primary use of the book? To provide historical background to your paper topic? To provide some interpretation and analysis about your essay topic? To provide examples and evidence for your paper?

Example 1 (a book citation):

Klein, Naomi. The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. Toronto, Ont.: Alfred A. Knopf Canada, 2007. HC59.3 .K58 2007

This book provides a broad overview of the impact of American- sponsored neo-liberal reforms on much of the developing world. Naomi Klein argues that there is nothing  free about the global  free market and that in fact the so-called  free market has resulted in numerous economic and social disasters for millions of people in the developing world. For the purposes of this essay, this book will be used to provide examples and evidence to show how American policy in Iraq after 2003 can be described as  colonial and  imperial. Most of these examples will come from chapters 5 and 6. (100 words)

Example 2: (an article citation)

Blackburn, Robin,  A Global Pension Plan New Left Review 47, September-October 2007. UNB e-journals: endnote citations. Part of your grade will depend on how good you follow these examples.
