Instructions for Writing Book Review


The book you are reviewing must be on the reading list above or expressly approved by the professor.


Heading: List the author, complete title, place of publication, publisher, date of publication, and number of pages of the book you are reviewing. Include the original date of publication if your edition is not the original edition of the book. The heading must go at the beginning of your review.


Example: Wellington, Harry H. Interpreting the Constitution: The Supreme Court and the Process of Adjudication (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1990), 196 pp.


Content: A book review should be both descriptive and analytical: what does the book say and what is your opinion of it? Is the book valuable? Why or why not?  What does the book tell you about American politics? How well does it do this? Would you recommend this book to others? Why or why not? Try to identify both strengths and weaknesses, though you need not strain to create the latter. Your idea must reflect your own ideas and words, not what other reviewers have said. Plagiarized papers will result in a zero for the assignment.


Author: A sentence or two should be included about the author and his or her training, background, or qualifications to write the book, preferably towards the beginning of your review.


Format: The review must be two to three typewritten, double-spaced pages (500-750 words). Do not go over this limit. If you quote from the book, and you should not do so often, the page number of the quote must be placed in parentheses after the quote. At the end of the review put your name, course, and date.



Spelling and Grammar:  As you write, use that most elementary and helpful resource, the “Spelling and Grammar” check, that accompanies every word processing program. Grammar and spelling should be correct.  Every cardinal grammatical error (subject verb disagreement, sentence fragments, etc.) will be docked one (1) point. A simple use of spell and grammar check, a process taking mere minutes, will save you many points.
