    By Robert W. Strayer [College at Brockport emeritus]. "Ways of the World" offers a genuine alternative for world history survey courses.

The accessible voice of a single author, with long Cited by: 1. In the study of history as an academic discipline, a primary source (also called an original source) is an artifact, document, diary, manuscript, autobiography, recording, or any other source of information that was created at the time under study. It serves as an original source of information about the topic. Similar definitions can be used in library science, and other areas of scholarship.

      Primary sources are the raw materials of historical research - they are the documents or artifacts closest to the topic of investigation. Often they are created during the time period which is being studied (correspondence, diaries, newspapers, government documents, art) but they can also be produced later by eyewitnesses or participants (memoirs, oral histories). Summarize the book’s organization and give a little more detail about the author’s sub-arguments. Here you would also work in your assessment of the evidence and sources used. Strengths and weaknesses or flaws in the book are usually discussed next.

    The historical sources can be of two types, i.e. Primary and Secondary Sources. A primary source is the evidence of an eye witness or mechanical device which was present at the time of the occurrence of an event. It is the work of the historian to convert the scattered difficult primary evidences into coherent, intelligible secondary sources.   Secondary sources include scholarly journals articles, books, and class lectures. Secondary sources usually have bibliographies of primary sources, a formal writing style, and a critical approach. For example, let's say you are writing a paper about the battle of Normandy (D-Day) in World War II: Examples of secondary sources would include.
