Credits: (4).

This course examines how democracy evolves and functions in different settings around the world. We start with the emergence of democracy in Western Europe, examining the factors that give rise to it and help it survive.

We then examine the origins of fascism in Germany and Japan and the rise of communism in Russia and China, attempting to understand why these alternatives to democracy flourished in those settings and why they later collapsed. This leads to an analysis of the current struggle between reformers and hardliners over the move to market economies and liberal democracy in Russia, China, and Eastern Europe, and an assessment of the prospects for democracy in Mexico and Nigeria.

Finally, we examine the probable evolution of democracy in advanced industrial societies. In addition to two lectures, there are two meetings a week in relatively small discussion sections, designed to encourage active discussion of these topics.

Poli. Sci. 160. Introduction to World Politics.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Douglas Lemke (dlemke@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (SS).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This course is designed to introduce students to the concepts and ideas central to social science efforts to understand politics in an international setting. As such, it stresses theory and inference and uses historical anecdote and contemporary events only as illustrations to illuminate behavior in larger classes of events. The course begins with consideration of who the actors in world politics are, and what the international system they interact within looks like. We then turn our attention to specific types of interactions between states. We will consider both economic interactions and military interactions. Grades will be based on written examinations, paper assignments and such additional assignments as may be made by individual section leaders.

Poli. Sci. 300. Contemporary Political Issues.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Gregory Markus (gmarkus@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (SS).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Learn about: (1) important social, economic, and political issues of the day, including how an issue becomes "important". (2) the political values and attitudes of the American public; (3) the conduct of political campaigns and elections. Scholarly readings are intermixed with articles about current issues, and our discussions often move freely from assigned readings to the latest news.

Although intended primarily for non-political science concentrators, this is a serious course for serious students. If you'd prefer to slouch in the back of the room and observe the class disinterestedly, we'd prefer that you take some other course. The readings are extensive, and occasionally difficult. You will be expected to: stay current with the readings, attend lectures faithfully, participate in sections actively, and engage in additional learning activities outside the classroom. You will write papers and take essay-style exams. If you do all that, we're sure that you'll learn a lot about politics and policy in America.

Recommended: at least one prior political science course. Grades are based on a no-curve system.

The aim of this course is two-fold: (1) to give students a sense of the history of political philosophy from the ancient Greek period to the end of the sixteenth century; and (2) to help students become aware of the complexities and assumptions entailed in the articulation of a coherent political theory. We will be reading the works of such major political philosophers as Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Machiavelli. We will be concerned with such issues as the relation between nature and convention, the sources of legitimacy, the role of the individual in the political community and the value and purpose of political life. Readings will be from primary sources. Class meetings will include both lectures and discussions. Course requirements will include two exams during the term and a final.

This course examines the politics of developed democracies: i.e., those where commitment to relatively free-market capitalism and to relatively liberal democracy are no longer the subject of any serious political debate or conflict. This is not a course in current or past events in these countries. Rather we analyze certain systematic, (social) scientific regularities which may be evidenced in the politics of advanced capitalist democracies. In this positive (not normative) analysis, the focus is on political parties, elections, patterns of participation and of political conflict, public policy, and political economy. Course grades will be based upon short-paper writing, a final examination, and participation.

This course traces the political development of the socialist countries of Eastern Europe from revolution through reaction, to attempts at reform, and to the post-Communist period. After examining the political cultures of the region, the course analyzes the Stalinist period, attempts at de-Stalinization, and the search for political alternatives.

The interaction of rulers and the ruled is examined by studying the elites, ethnic and social groups, public opinion and dissent in the area. We study attempts at political and economic reform, the fundamental changes of 1989-1990, and the present state of politics in Eastern Europe. This lecture course requires a final examination, one or two short papers, and a choice of midterm examination or term paper.

We study how East European Jews developed means for dealing with states and societies that regarded them as alien; how states dealt with this ethno-religious minority; and, more generally, how states manage multiethnic societies. Ideologies, movements, parties and institutions are analyzed, partly through literature, folklore, music, and art. Requirements include midterm and final examinations and a term paper.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Christopher Achen (achen@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: Junior standing. (3). (Excl).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Will a single presidential candidate emerge from the primaries or will we have a brokered convention? Do arms races lead to war? Why do popular movements get started, grow, and then often subside without accomplishing their goals? Is the earth growing warmer and what should be done about it politically? Questions of this kind are not easily answered with unaided intuition. Social systems grow organically, and their parts interact in different ways at different times.

Feedback loops cause many reforms to have the opposite of the intended effect. The purpose of this course is to bring systems thinking to bear on political dynamics. A few simple but powerful mathematical ideas will be taught and applied to a variety of political issues. Students will learn to experiment with dynamics and forecasting on personal computers, using primarily graphical methods. The course is meant to be experimental and applied rather than theoretical. A prerequisite of one prior course in political science is suggested. (Achen)

This course presents and explores theories of organizational decision-making and various features of the context in which decision-making takes place. We start by considering the rational theory of decision-making and then several alternatives to this theory. We then consider the perception of risk (as influenced by individual cognition, cultural and structural features of the decision-making context), the effects of national and/or ethnic culture and organizational culture on decision-making and the effects of hierarchical and groups relations on information exchange and, ultimately on decision-making. At intervals throughout the course we discuss how the theories we are discussing play out in an actual situation. The Challenger Launch Decision by Diane Vaughan gives us a basis for such exploration. Excerpts from the book provide information about the case so that we can discuss the relationship between the theories we are learning and what happened in that case.

Assignments include reading several articles or book chapters per week, writing three short (500 1000 words) papers, one longer (2000-3000 words) paper and giving 1 oral presentation based on the longer paper. Activities in the course include discussion (readings and short discussion papers written by students will provide basis for discussion), one video-tape and two in-class exercises.
