Lately, Pillar has assumed the role of astringent critic of various US policies pertaining, in particular, to the Middle East. His criticisms have become especially piquant since the country became embroiled in Iraq.
These notions focus US foreign policy through various distorting religious and cultural prims. Of course, pundits have argued this concept back and forth for decades.

Are they more nationalistic than their European counterparts? If the proposition is true, is it uniquely American? Does it apply in all instances or is it true enough to permit generalization?

SENIOR THESIS GRADING RUBRIC committee must reevaluate the thesis and try to come to an agreement on the scoring. When consistency is achieved, the 3 grades are averaged (i.e., using arithmetic mean) to determine the final grade.
Senior theses are analyzed using the rubric below to assess students’ performance within the context of the Department’s six Student Learning Objectives.
These ru brics are modified from those obtained from the Association of American Colleges and Universities. The primary grading rubric for the senior thesis is the one set forth in detail in the section below entitled Primary grading rubric.
It should be used for all theses which are primarily focused on a topic in physics, broadly construed.
