M5 Collaborative Annotated Bibliography Project
For the Final Research Project, you must consult at least one scholarly book. For this assignment, you will be asked to select that book (if you have not already done so) and to add an annotation on it to the Collaborative Annotated Bibliography we have been developing as a collective. This annotation will be in addition to the three annotations you have been asked to contribute in each module.

Here’s what to do:

Go back to the current issue of interest you identified in Module 4 on U.S. Immigration Restrictions
· Choose 3 scholarly book sources that you intend to use to develop your written assignment on U.S. Immigration Restrictions.
o Go to the Empire State College online library, or a public or university library.

After you have chosen three (3) Scholarly sources, familiarize yourself with the books and its contents. You need only to “skim” the books at this point, in order to get a sense of:
the topics it covers;
the key argument of the author(s); and
some of the sources the author(s) relies on to support the argument.
o Please also DO NOT select the sources entries that you entered in Module 2, 3, & 4 (attached) any other non-peer reviewed (or non-refereed) publications. There will be a place for those sources in your final research projects, just not in this assignment.

Please observe the following guidelines in preparing your annotations:

· As you write your book annotation, be sure to:
o Introduce the subject, scope, and type of book.
o Identify the book by author, title, and publishing information, following the same guidelines for preparing the other annotations you have done.
o Specify the type of book (for example, fiction, nonfiction, biography, autobiography).
o Describe the book’s theme.
o Include background to enable reader(s) to place the book into a specific context. For example, you might want to describe the general problem the book addresses or earlier work the author or others have done.
o Briefly summarize the content, discussing some of the issues the book raises.
· Provide your initial reactions to the book
o Describe the book: Is it interesting, memorable, entertaining, instructive? Why?
o Respond to the author’s opinions:
o What do you agree with? And why?
o What do you disagree with? And why?
o Relate the book to larger issues such as your research topic and others within modern U.S. History.
· Evaluation Criteria
o Try and keep this annotation short. However, since you are being asked to do some additional work, you may aim for 250 words as a maximum amount for each scholarly source.
o Please use the Chicago Style for citations, and take care to ensure that the citations are completed properly.

Please DO NOT use the following sources from the previous module 2, just use as a sample format:

Schacher, Y. (2020). Family separation and lives in limbo: US immigration policy in the 1920s and during the Trump administration. The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, 690(1), 192-199.

This essay discusses policies and practices regarding family breakup among immigrants in the 1920s and today, based on the author’s work with refugees and asylum seekers in the United States. The author describes how limitations on the entrance of relatives cause immigrants and refugees in the United States to feel uneasy and divided using data gathered from historical documents and first-hand interviews with refugees and asylum seekers. The author contrasts the circumstances of the 1920s with those of more modern times when the federal government has implemented measures to limit admittance and obstruct integration. This article will play a crucial role in helping me formulate strong arguments to support my points.
