Discuss the role of women in espionage during the 20th century, using specific examples.
Essays MUST provide bibliographies of all works consulted, whether or not they have been quoted directly. An inadequate bibliography (for assignments as long as those above) is one which contains less than six books or articles related to the topic, or books which are entirely general work or texts.
Discuss your topic in terms of intelligence services, espionage, and international relations. Domestic events may be important and worthy of discussion in your paper, but the emphasis should be on intelligence/espionage and the international dimensions. You should ask yourself the following questions in dealing with their chosen subjects: What event or policy are you covering? What caused it? What happened? What was its significance for national or international relations at the time and in history? You may find that there are differing interpretations of issues and events, and a good essay will show awareness of these. You may argue whatever you position you like, as long as you can back your arguments with reasonable and credible evidence. Please note that the key to good research is to be as exhaustive and critical as possible.
