(times on sign-up sheet)

.doc or .rtf format, at my office by Monday, December 5, 11am.
The electronic copy can be e-mailed or on a disk (I will return your

yourself (major, class year, relevant interests), and the extent of
your knowledge of German/European history (e.g. personal/family connections,
previous coursework, travel). You might also say why you chose this
particular book or topic.
Example: I am a junior political science major who has been studying
the formation of political parties. I traveled through Germany after
I graduated from high school, and I have visited the Holocaust museum
in Washington. I chose to write about the genocide in Nigeria because
I am interested in human rights issues.

only bold and italics (underlining will be for links only).
- At the end you should have a sources section, with the full
bibliographic information for the sources you found. It should include
at least two other books, journal articles, or web sites on your
topic (with the full link). They must be annotated.
