Why is the thesis placed in the introduction? In a mystery novel, the puzzle is not solved until the end. But in history papers, your conclusion should appear first. Readers need to know what you are arguing from the beginning, so they can evaluate your argument as they read. This means that often you cannot write a good thesis statement before you have undertaken the arduous work of understanding your sources and argument. I cannot stress this enough: once you have written a draft of your paper, go back and refine your thesis statement.
Even though it doesn’t sound like you need to write an argumentative thesis statement, you’ll still want to set up a thesis statement that gives the reader a road map for what you will be addressing in your paper and also that offers your opinion on the work (since it’s a book review).
