Primary source analysis:
Your primary source analysis should analyze two primary sources that are related to the topic of your research paper. This “paper” does not have to have an argument or an introduction or conclusion, and you may treat each source separately if that makes the most sense. It will be evaluated for how well you have done the following things:
"Mao Zedong" OR "Mao Tse-Tung"
"Jiang Qing" OR "Chiang Ching"
"Zhou Enlai" OR "Chou En-lai"
"Deng Xiaoping" OR "Teng Hsiao-ping"
Kuomintang OR Guomindang

Examples of keywords that retrieve primary sources: sources, personal narratives, diaries, papers, letters, interviews, documents, images. Another way to find primary sources is to do an author search of the individual or organization whose writings you hope to find. This same approach can be used in WorldCat and HathiTrust.
Here is an example of how to search the KU Catalog using Advanced Search. If you do not know Chinese be sure to set the language limits.
