Bibliography and Author Biographies

There are five required sources that I’ve assigned for the research paper.  In Step 1, you will create a bibliography for these sources (more information below) and write short, single-paragraph biographies for each author (more information below).   How to create the Bibliography: Below is a list of all six required sources.  I’ve given you all of the information you need to create bibliographical entries, but you’ll need to put them in the correct format using the Chicago style bibliography guide found at this link: https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-1.html  (Links to an external site.) .    Source #1: Chapter in an edited book “Historians Reassess: Did We Need to Drop the Bomb?,” by Gar Alperovitz (from Hiroshima’s Shadow: Writings on the Denial of History & the Smithsonian Controversy, ed. Kai Bird and Lawrence Lifschultz).  Pages 15-34. The Pamphleteer’s Press – Stony Brook, CT – 1998   Source #2: Chapter in an edited book “The Decision to Use the Bombs,” by P.M.S. Blackett (from Hiroshima’s Shadow: Writings on the Denial of History & the Smithsonian Controversy, ed. Kai Bird and Lawrence Lifschultz).  Pages 78-89. The Pamphleteer’s Press – Stony Brook, CT – 1998   Source #3: Journal article “Racing to the Finish,” by Stanley Goldberg (from Journal of American-East Asian Relations, vol. 4, no. 2, Special Issue–Above the Mushroom Clouds: Fiftieth Anniversary Perspectives) Summer 1995 – pp. 117-128   Source #4: Journal article “A Post-War Myth: 500,000 U.S. Lives Saved,” by Barton Bernstein (from Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists) June/July 1986.  Pages 38-40.   Source #5: Journal article “The Biggest Decision: Why We Had to Drop the Atomic Bomb,” by Robert James Maddox (from American Heritage, vol. 46, no. 3) May/June 1995   Source #6: Magazine article “Thank God for the Atom Bomb,” by Paul Fussell (from The New Republic) August 1981     Here’s an example of one correctly formatted bibliography entry that you can use.  It’s for the first source “Historians Reassess: Did We Need to Drop the Bomb?” by Gar Alperovitz.  Using the Chicago style guide at the link listed above, I found the example of a bibliography entry under the category of “Chapter or other part of an edited book.”    First, let’s look at the guide’s example…   Based on the bibliography entry format, I placed the information for the Alperovitz source into this correct sequence: Alperovitz, Gar.  “Historians Reassess: Did We Need to Drop the Bomb?” In Hiroshima’s Shadow: Writings on the Denial of History & the Smithsonian Controversy, edited by Kai Bird and Lawrence Lifschultz, 15-34.  Stony Brook, CT: The Pamphleteer’s Press, 1998. Use the guide and the information I’ve given you for each source to create bibliography entries for the rest of the sources.  You must include all six sources in your bibliography.  For any sources missing page numbers, don’t worry about it, you can just leave that part out of the bibliography entry.   How to create the Author Biographies: In the same document, following the bibliography section, create a short biography for each of the authors (one small paragraph per author).  To do this, research each author for the following information: professional background, academic background, area(s) of expertise, and examples of published works.  The point of this exercise is to get to know our authors and why they’re considered an authoritative source on this topic.  It’s very important to know the source behind anything you read so that you know whether or not the information you’re reading is credible and/or biased in any way.  This is an important measure we should always employ in today’s information age, when articles and social media posts inundate us with information that may or may not be vetted or valid. The six authors are: Gar Alperovitz P.M.S. Blackett Stanley Goldberg Barton Bernstein Robert James Maddox Paul Fussell   Here’s an example of a biography for one of the authors, Gar Alperovitz, that you’re welcome to use for this assignment.  But you’ll need to create your own biographies for each of the other four required authors.  Gar Alperovitz is a historian, political economist, activist, and author who earned a Ph.D. in political economy from Cambridge University.  He has written several books on subjects ranging from wealth disparities in capitalist economies to atomic diplomacy.  His work on the dropping of the atomic bombs in 1945 include The Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb and the Architecture of an American Myth, “Why We Dropped the Bomb,” and “The History of Atomic Diplomacy,” among others.  His articles have appeared in periodicals such as The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, and The Washington Post.   I got all of that information from Gar Alperovitz’s professional website (https://garalperovitz.wpengine.com/about-gar/  (Links to an external site.) ), but I put it in my own words.  A faculty page, publisher’s page, or professional page of some sort is a great place to find this type of information.
