Compare and Contrast Essay – Two Authors, Two Perspectives

Comparison and Contrast is an analytical form of writing which builds upon the skill set of both descriptive and expository writing. In a comparison and contrast essay, two subjects are analyzed for their similarities and differences. Students are exposed to a wider variety of writing structures as they learn the classical organizational patterns of block arrangement vs. point by point. A comparison and contrast essay consists of an introduction, a body of several paragraphs and a conclusion.

Please select two different authors or political figures that we have discussed during the course of the semester. Compare and contrast their views on American principles of justice. How are they similar? How are they different? Be specific in your analysis; rely on details from the readings. Use APA in-text citations (not quotes) to support your statements. You may use any of the materials we discussed in class and can cite your lecture notes. Remember to include an APA formatted reference page as well.
