Once you have read this week’s readings, please complete this eResponse by writing concise but thorough answers to all of the following questions.
You must include page numbers in each question–your score will depend on it. I do not require any specific citation format. Just include (author last name, page number) at the end of the relevant sentences. Please note that you must cite when you draw any ideas from the text, whether or not you explicitly quote it. And you must draw your ideas from the text because that is the assignment.
Please be sure that if and when you use a direct quotation from the reading, you also explain what that quotation means in your own words.
- What does Waltz mean by “small states”? How does that designation relate to their power?
- Waltz uses four categories to describe small states’ contributions to the human rights project. Name and describe at least two of them (number your answers 2a and 2b), providing an illustrative example for each. (Be sure to review all four for our synchronous class discussion on Monday).
- What were the four castes/classes, in other words the social groupings of people, (that Knight describes) in Haiti leading up to the revolution? Next to each class, list the kinds of rights they were demanding.
