The question is (To what extent will President Barack Obama be able to change the direction of US foreign policy?)
Please State the aims, argument, and structure of your work in the first paragraph of the essay. Please clarify what your argument is, and how it relates to the question. Please don’t be VAGUE.
The project should be 3000 words, exclusive of footnotes (endnotes) and bibliography. It must be typed, double-spaced, properly footnoted, and include a bibliography of the books, articles, and other source material used for the assignment. You will fail this component of assessment if your assignment is not properly footnoted and/or does not include a bibliography. The project may be presented with diagrams, illustrations and/or maps as supporting material but please note that the quality of the argument and supporting evidence will carry most weight with the examiners.
