In this assignment you are asked to critically evaluate the text of Keith Wrightson (Ralph Tailor’s Summer: a scrivener, his city and the plague (New Haven: Princeton University Press, 2011)). You will need to engage with and evaluate his main argument, constructing an argument of your own about the legitimacy and value of his position. In order to do so effectively, you will need to pay careful attention to the underlying assumptions of the text itself. In effect, what you are being asked to do in this task is to pull apart and examine a piece of history in precisely the same way we do in class. *What kind of history is being made and told by Analyse how Wrightson treats and incorporates his sources into a persuasive argument.? *How? *For what purpose? *Are you convinced of its value? *Why/why not? These are the kind of questions you need to be asking as you undertake this piece of assessment. What I am looking for in this piece of assessment is essentially an ordinary research essay, but with one key difference: instead of researching an event or idea or person or object from the past, you will be researching the historian’s METHODOLOGY. How you do this, though, is up to you. But regardless of how you do it, the methodology must be the focus of your argument, and the frame of your discussion. *No matter which angle you take, you must formulate a clear and concise THESIS STATEMENT, backed by a good historical ARGUMENT and evidence from the book. *NO ADDITIONAL RESEARCH IS EXPECTED.This is an assignment that targets and rewards close, careful, and CRITICAL reading; persuasive argumentation and concise prose. Don’t think of it as a book review; treat it like an essay on the purpose, methods, and objectives of historical writing. This paper is based on a book, i have already uploaded the content of the book. If you don’t have this book, you can simply check the content and message me the chapter you may needed for this paper. Since this whole book is too large for upload at once and of course I don’t want you to cause any extra cost.
