GOVT S-20 Introduction to Comparative Politics
This course provides an introduction to the key concepts and theories in comparative politics. Topics include democracy and authoritarianism, social revolutions, political economy of development, ethnic conflict, modernization, political culture, state formation, institutions, rationality, and civil society. We examine these topics in light of the empirical evidence drawn from Africa (Nigeria and Rwanda), the Americas (Mexico and the United States), Asia (China, India, South Korea), Europe (Britain and Germany), Middle East (Iran), and post-communism (Russia and former Yugoslavia).
