Chocolate and Oil to Brexit
please state which item you’ll pair with chocolate to analyze. Provide 3 sources for each item (chocolate plus the one you choose). At least 2 of them should be peer-reviewed. Peer-reviewed means academic resources – like journal articles. To distinguish peer-reviewed or scholarly items from periodicals, click here. The Week 3 assignment should be about 1 page double-spaced with an additional References List page. On the first page, describe what the assignment is about and tell something about chocolate and your other item as they relate to Brexit. Please use Chicago/Turabian author-date style in formatting your sources – and use in-text attributions rather than footnotes to hold your sources.
Below is a set of resources that will help you begin your research, plus you need 2 scholarly sources.
