What is an annotation? An annotation is more than just a brief summary of an article, book, Web site or other type of
publication. An annotation should give enough information to make a reader decide whether
to read the complete work. In other words, if the reader were exploring the same topic as
you, is this material useful and if so, why?
How is an annotation different from an abstract? While an abstract also summarizes an article, book, Web site or other type of publication, it is
purely descriptive. Although annotations can be descriptive, they also include distinctive
features about an item. Annotations can be evaluative and critical as we will see when we
look at the two major types of annotations.
Your Assignment An annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources (like a reference list). It differs from a
straightforward bibliography in that each reference is followed by a paragraph length
annotation, usually 100–200 words in length.
You will prepare an annotated bibliography on a topic of your own choosing — this topic must
be related to your term paper. You will need a minimum of 5 scholarly peer revwied sources
for this assignment (you may use more, but you only need 5 to fulfill the assignment

Starr, P.D. & Roberts, A.E. (1982). Attitudes toward new Americans: Perceptions of Indo-
Chinese in nine cities. Research in Race and Ethnic Relations, 3, 165-186.
The authors discuss some of the sociological and historical factors that have influenced
American attitudes and official policy toward Asian immigrants in the past and that continue to
influence current opinion. Contemporary attitudes toward Indo-Chinese (IC) expressed by local
residents in nine cities in California, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida were examined. Seven
hundred and forty five questionnaires were returned by respondents. The authors describe how
the respondents’ points of view were influenced by different background characteristics and their
experiences with IC people. The results show less overt racism than has been found in previous
studies, but great receptivity to the IC people was not found in the present study. Only a small
proportion of the respondents regarded the IC people as undesirable, but many thought that they
affected the community negatively.
I found it interesting that persons of higher education or with jobs of higher status tended to be
more positive in their views of the IC people, while political conservatives expressed more
