Book summary

Hist 1106 Final Essay
Additional Instructions and Information

This is some additional instructions and information on the final essay assignment.

Your final assignment is designed to help you further develop your writing skills as well as your skills in reading and understanding historical works. Summarize Janis Thiessen, Snacks: A Canadian Food History (Winnipeg: University of Manitoba Press, 2017, in a 4-5 page, properly structured essay.

The assignment is thus straightforward: write a concise summary of the book. The summary must include the major ideas in the book, as well as the evidence that the author uses to support these ideas. Since this is a history book, the evidence is historical events, people, places and things. So if the author, for instance, says that Canada once had an important snack food industry, include examples of the snack food companies. If she talks about how and why these companies disappeared, recount the major events in that story. Note that a summary is different from a book review. A book review is about giving your opinion on the book. A summary is just about recapping the major ideas and evidence.

There is a very good discussion of how to write a book summary here: I strongly suggest you read this before you start. Note that this web page discusses summarizing fiction and non-fiction books. We are only interested in the instructions on summarizing non-fiction books, of course.
Do not use any wikipedia please, all has to come from the book!!!!!!!!!!
