Your four sources are required to come from the CSU Online Library and fit the following criteria:
• One primary source: A document, object, or other material directly related to the topic and time. This should be a document that provides a first-hand account of your topic without previous knowledge of the event. Examples may include newspapers, diaries, letters, film, records, or speeches.
• One current, relevant article: An article published in a reputable periodical within the last five years.
• One peer-reviewed article: An article from a respected publication put out by universities, historical societies, or another academic entity that has clearly identified the credentials of the author, reviewer, and publisher.
• One published book: This can be in electronic or print form and from any time. Be sure to research the publisher, author, and year as that may influence bias.
Do not submit more than four sources; only the first four sources listed will be considered.
If you have questions, please email your professor for assistance.

The purpose of the annotated bibliography example is to help you with the formatting of the annotated bibliography, which can be confusing. Use the document formatting as a guide. If further assistance is needed, contact the Writing Center or your professor.
The following conventions are expected to be followed throughout your project. Click here to view the Writing Center’s annotated bibliography example for guidance:
• Four selected reputable sources should be formatted in 6th edition APA style.
• Annotation paragraphs should be written after each of the five sources (as outlined below).
• The entries should be ordered alphabetically.
• The entire annotated bibliography should be double-spaced with no additional spaces between entries.
• No reference list should be included with the annotated bibliography as the entries themselves will contain the reference list citation information.Annotations:
The annotation paragraphs begin on the line following the end of the reference. See the Writing Center example to see how this should look.
Each of the four entries should begin with a reference list citation in APA style and be followed by a 100- to 150-word summary of the source’s information. Your annotated bibliography should be at least two pages in length. An annotated bibliography summary should include the most important information from the text. Sometimes, this means that you will broadly summarize larger portions of text (i.e., main ideas); at other times, this means that you will focus on summarizing one paragraph out of an entire source. Whenever you quote information, use APA in-text citations.
If you are having trouble finding resources or distinguishing between what are and are not allowable publications, consult your professor or the CSU Online Library
ANSWER TO THE QUESTION
Imperialism in Western Civilization
Allen, F. L. (1938). In a time of apprehension: A commencement address delivered at the
Bennington College in Bennington Vermont. Catamount Press.
Fredrick Lewis Allen was a notable American historian, as well as the editor of Harper’s Magazine. His address to the 1938 graduates of Bennington College sought to remind them of the current affairs of their world, including the notion of imperialism that was sweeping through the western world. The author gives an example of the British Empire’s overspreading to the world as one of the precursors for the unbelievable spread of the Western civilization. The author argues that imperialism has been catalyzed by overpopulation, industrialization, and the availability of natural resources. Allen effectively explains imperialism by outlining its causative factors, as well as its adverse consequences. Scholars will find the reason for the United States’ lack of involvement in imperialism in the speech, the country’s economy was not expanding fast enough to support expansionism.
Antolihao, L. (2015). Playing with the Big Boys: Basketball, American Imperialism, and
Subaltern Discourse in the Philippines. U of Nebraska Press.
Antolihao explores the issue of sports imperialism by examining the worldwide dissemination of basketball. He probes the reason why the sport is famous in the Philippines, despite the fact that the region was ominous for the development of the game. Antolihao details the history of basketball in the Philippines by using national and academic archives, and by conducting interviews. The seemingly unfavorable atmosphere of the country to the game opens up a new view that the adherence to basketball by the Filipinos may be a case of sports imperialism. Scholars may be intrigued by this book as the concept of sports imperialism opens up other games like soccer, golf, and cricket for scrutiny.
Serfati, C. (2015). Imperialism in Context. Historical Materialism, 23(2), 52–93.
The author examines France’s increasing role around the world in the face of its decline as a European power. France’s status has weakened since the two World Wars, it has been edged out as one of the leading trading entities in Europe. The author clarifies France’s decline by comparing French investment abroad from the 19th to the 20th century. The work outlines the important role that colonies had in the spread of imperialism. It is interesting to note that most of the country’s industrial products were consumed by its colonies, who incidentally produced the raw materials used in the manufacture of the products. The author asserts that France has employed different dynamics to remain relevant on the global scene.
Shenming, L. (2016). Today’s world is still in the epoch of financial imperialism.
International Critical Thought, 6(2), 151–164. https://doi.org/10.1080/21598282.2016.1172580
Shenming, a respected scholar at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences seeks to discard the school of thought that postulates that countries have achieved economic freedom. The author argues that financial bondage is still a critical aspect of the hegemony and supremacy politics of the Western world. He goes on to define an epoch to validate his claims that our era is riddled with instances of financial impropriety by the leading Western countries. The writer borrows from the teachings of Vladimir Lenin to elucidate the rising phenomena of financial imperialism. The author acknowledges that it would be an uphill task to free the developing world from the stranglehold of the Western countries.
Sinclair-Maragh, G., & Gursoy, D. (2015). Imperialism and tourism: The case of developing
island countries. Annals of Tourism Research, 50, 143–158. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.annals.2014.12.001
The authors elaborate the perceptions of individuals from developing islands regarding tourism and imperialism. Both authors are distinguished professionals in the niche of hospitality. They seek to explore the attitudes towards the perceived modern-day imperialism, especially that which is perpetrated by tourists on island nations like Jamaica. Students will be interested to know the contemporary forms of imperialism which deviate from the usual types involving the use of force. The authors reason that tourism is a modern form of imperialism because individuals from the developed nations are encouraged to invest in developing countries to spur development. The writers utilize past seminal research pieces to investigate the different forms of imperialism. They tested different variables on varying sample groups like college students and parish residents. The authors manage to present presumably harmless activities like tourism as the projection of imperial authority by developed countries.
