Youranalysis should be a sustained reflection on the key elements of this scholarly debate drawing extensively on the academic literature, evaluating the detractions, merits and implications of the respective divergent arguments.

- Required Reading will be attached for yourself + other academic books as sources (my professor dislike online resources) .
