For term paper equivalent research, we'll need about ten chapter
(or twelve shorter reading) outlines (in Html format) from each of you.
We'll also need about four hours (logged) of searching and downloading
materials from databases.
Materials may be conveyed to me in email attachments, floppy disks, or
if too voluminous, on a flash drive.
All outlines and materials should be headed by source citation (preferably
in APSA Style).
Provide a source citation list that I will post to the FRAMP references
For FRAMP, these books have been delivered to the researchers by hand.
We need one-page outlines of each chapter or reading (plus any juicy
"quotes," cited with page number.)
Convert your outlines to HTML format and attach to an email.
Indicate which book and chapter each one covers.
Howard plus Garson anthologies are large.
Some technical readings need only the understandable, policy oriented parts
rather than information technology.
