Ok, so this is probably a pretty simple question for most people, but being completely computer illiterate I am stuck and I need help!
I am writing a book discussion for a history essay and I was told to use academic book reviews of the book I am discussing to help with my critical analysis of the book.
My dilemma, I dont know where to find academically suitable book reviews! I have found a couple but I need about ten! Most of the ones I have found you have to pay for, I dont even have a credit card, let alone the money to pay for online book reviews from academic journals! I tried finding the same reviews on my uni library website (it was suggested to do that) but I havent found any there.
So where do I find academically acceptable book reviews of a certain history book about genocide for a uni essay? I have been looking in academic journals on genocide and have had some success, should I just keep looking there? Its hard when I dont know the name of any genocide journals though! Lol.
I actually posed this question to my lecturer, but he responded by saying that I needed to learn how to use databases, madame, and he questioned how I had managed to stay at uni this long! How horrible. I thought his remark (which was in CAPITALS, as if it needed any more emphasis) was uncalled for and patronizing. If I dont ask, how else will I learn?! After his rude remark, he still didnt tell me. Grr. I was so upset, like I didnt feel stupid enough, so I cried and ate... a whole bag of vege crisps... now I feel sick.
Sorry for the long post... this is probably a stupid question anyway! I just thought if anyone else knew where to find journals which I didnt have to pay for, which are accessible online, then it would be so helpful and greatly appreciated! Thanks!
