POLSCI 111. Introduction to American Politics.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Daniel P Carpenter (dancarp@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: Primarily for First and Second Year Students. (4). (SS).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~dancarp/ps111.htm

This is a broad survey of government and politics in the United States which explores a wide range of topics including public opinion, elections, interest groups, the presidency, Congress, and the courts. We will examine the basic structure of American government and politics, namely, what are the rules that govern this system? How have these rules changed over time, and to what ends? Some specific questions covered in the course are: What makes one set of interests more successful in the public sphere? Are political parties meaningful anymore? What accounts for swings in voting behavior and election outcomes from one time to another? What influences a member of Congress' voting decision? In what ways do presidents and bureaucrats affect public policies? This is not a comprehensive list but suggests the kinds of issues that are discussed in this course. There are two lectures and two discussion section meetings each week. Coursework involves readings and several written assignments; there will also be an in-class midterm and a written final examination.

Readings for the Course: All books are available at Shaman Drum Bookstore. There is no coursepack.

  • The Federalist Papers (ed. Clinton Rossiter).
  • Alexis deTocqueville, Democracy in America (Penguin edition).

Instructor(s): Ronald F Inglehart (rfi@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: Primarily for First and Second Year Students. (4). (SS).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

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.

Prerequisites & Distribution: Primarily for First and Second Year Students. (4). (SS).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2002/winter/polsci/160/001.nsf

This course analyzes world politics from a broad and general perspective, explaining and exploring the principles involved in the functioning of the global political system and illustrating these principles with contemporary material. The course begins by presenting basic concepts like national power and reviewing well-known theories such as realism and liberalism. A strategic approach based on the combination of power, preferences, and perceptions will be explained. That approach is used to understand a variety of issues in world politics, including war, alliances, domestic politics and foreign policy, and international political economy. These issues will be presented both in general terms and applied to understand specific key events. The course requires two short papers, a midterm, and a final.

POLSCI 300. Contemporary Political Issues.

Section 001.

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

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

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~gmarkus/syllabus.html

Political Science 300 examines a number of issues that are the focus of contemporary political debate in the United States, such as taxes and spending, poverty and welfare reform, the politics of race, healthcare policy, public education, and public safety. We will emphasize the place of the active and informed public that is, us in influencing policies that affect us all. Politics is not just something we watch on TV or read about. It's something we do.

Curiosity, skepticism, initiative, and a willingness to examine ideas and "facts" critically are the essential prerequisites of the course. We will read, listen, discuss, write, and do a lot in PS 300, consistent with its four credit-hour value. Class discussions often move freely from assigned readings to the latest news. Because the course's subject matter is by its nature something of a moving target, we may decide as we go along to modify the course plan somewhat. "We" means all of us, together.

Grading is on a standard, no-curve 100-point system. You will write eight 750-word papers over the course of the term, worth 80 percent of your grade, altogether. The other 20 percent of your grade is based on your contribution to learning in your discussion section. You must attend lectures and your discussion sections. You may be asked to attend relevant events outside of our scheduled meeting times. In sections, you must be current in the readings and prepared to engage in informed, critical discussion each and every time. If you do that, we will all learn a lot and enjoy the experience. If you aren't really interested in assuming that much responsibility for your learning and the learning of your classmates then this is probably not the course for you.

Course Homepage: http://sitemaker.umich.edu/tessler/files/ps353-syllabus.htm

This course will present both factual and interpretive material about the Arab- Israeli conflict, an international dispute that has lasted for almost a century and whose significance extends far beyond the Middle East. After providing background information about Israel and the Arab world, including the Arabs of Palestine, the course will trace the historical development of the conflict from its origins in the 19th century until the present. The course will also examine the most important issues associated with the conflict, giving special attention to the competing territorial claims advanced by Israelis and Palestinians and to the rights of self-determination asserted by each. Attention will be given as well to relations between Israel and the Arab states. In discussing the many controversial issues associated with the Arab-Israeli conflict, the course will strive for objectivity and balance and will encourage the evaluation of differing points of view, including not only the competing views of Israelis and Arabs but also the important differences existing within Israel and the Arab world. The instructor for the course has attended university and subsequently conducted research in both the Arab world and Israel, having spent over four years in the former and almost three years in the latter. He visits the area frequently and regularly collaborates with Israeli and Arab scholars.

Reading:
The principal text is A History of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, an analytical and historical study by the instructor. This book has won several national awards. Also required is Negotiating Arab-Israeli Peace: Patterns, Problems, Possibilities by Laurie Zittrain Eisenberg and Neil Caplan. Both books are published by Indiana University Press.

This class will examine six different themes in contemporary political theory: liberalism, Marxism, feminism, race/post-colonialism, consumerism, and ethics. On each theme we will look at an older, roughly early twentieth-century text by a well-known theorist, and at a recently published, late twentieth-century text by a theorist engaged with the older text. This two-pronged approach will allow us to consider both questions of substance namely, what contemporary political theory is as well as questions of method namely, how contemporary political theory is done today. In addition to the theoretical readings, we will read one novel, Thomas Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49, and see one film, "Scottsboro: An American Tragedy," to help illuminate the themes we will explore. Be forewarned that this course has a heavy reading load and some of the reading will be difficult. The assignments will consist of take-home essays and some group work.

The American judicial process its structure, logic, and myriad legal and political functions is the central focus of this course. We will begin the academic term with an analysis of the role of courts in three policy domains: the management of disputes; criminal punishment; and implementation of social and institutional reform. We will subsequently explore those elements that distinguish courts from other political institutions through an examination of the nature of judicial reasoning and the choices and constraints that shape decisionmaking in this context. The term will conclude with a discussion of the origins and consequences of cross-national differences in the propensity of citizens and interest groups to take their disputes to court.

The primary substantive aim of the course is to help students develop a theoretically informed understanding of civil liberties and of the institutional devices for enforcing them. Additional aims include helping students to read and criticize political texts, to assess constitutional arguments, and to think and write more rigorously. Some of the topics that will be discussed include racial discrimination, rights to privacy, free speech, religious freedom, and rights of the accused, as well as others. Students are expected to have read assignments before class and to be prepared to discuss them. Students also will be expected to participate in a moot court exercise. Methods of instruction: lecture (3 hours) and discussion section (1 hour); you must register for both the lecture and discussion section. A basic understanding of American institutional politics and American history is assumed. Some exposure to political theory is helpful, but not required.

This course is an inquiry into the origins, structure, and operation of the modern American presidency. Its purpose is to familiarize students with the concepts and issues at the center of contemporary political science scholarship on the presidency. Three normative concerns broadly guide the organization of this course: First, generally speaking, do Americans get the kind of president they want? Put differently, what are the qualities we expect our presidents to possess in office and how successfully do our electoral institutions select for such individuals? Second, what are the determinants of effective presidential leadership? That is to say, why are some presidents more successful than others at exerting their influence over the governing process? And third, what is the proper role of the presidency in the contemporary American political system? Are the powers of the presidency adequate to the tasks expected of presidents? Does the growth of presidential power present a challenge to traditional notions of republican government? We will begin with an examination of the constitutional origins of the presidency. What role did the Framers intend the president to play in the American political system, and to what extent did the early presidency conform to these expectations? Subsequent weeks will focus on the nature of the modern presidency. Topics will include presidential selection, the elements of presidential power and authority, the presidency and the party system, and the institutional presidency.

Is Russian democracy an oxymoron (like postal service) or a genuine possibility? This course focuses primarily on the evolution of political processes and institutions since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 in order, primarily, to address that question. The course covers the political economy of the transition from the Soviet system, voting and other forms of political participation, the role of external actors inluding the United States and various NGOs and IGOs, relations between Moscow and Russia's regions, and high politics in a strongly presidential system.

All students will have the same assignments. Students will write a book review, a short op ed piece for the New York Times, and a term paper. In doing the latter, students are strongly encouraged, though not required, to do collaborative papers and to use one or more of several data sets about Russian attitudes that I will provide (I and the teaching assistant will provide assistance in learning the basics of data analysis.) There will be an in-class midterm, and a take-home final distributed on the last day of classes.

India has a long history, and its chronicle of many achievements coexists with a record of many unresolved problems. With a primary focus on the 20th century, this course concentrates on four crucial aspects of the "Indian experience." First, however, we will start with a brief overview of Indian history, concentrating on those periods that have a significant bearing on modern Indian politics.

We begin by discussing what the international system is, consider the possibility of multiple international systems, and describe some of the history of the modern international system(s). We then turn to consideration of patterns of cooperation and of conflict within the system. We will seek to understand why it is that some members of the system can cooperate in rather remarkable ways, while at other times overt conflict erupts. When discussing cooperation we will pay close attention to arguments about why international cooperation should be especially hard to achieve, and will speculate on ways to overcome these difficulties. Students will be awarded grades based on their performance in two exams and a term paper.

With the end of the Cold War and the acceleration of international economic integration, political scientists interested in international relations have increasingly turned their attention to the politics of global trade and finance. This area of study, known as international political economy (or simply IPE), focuses on the familiar connections between power and wealth, states and markets, and economics and politics in order to gain a better understanding of the political underpinnings of the global economy as well as the influences that international economics has on national and international politics. Are free trade and multipolarity compatible? Does economic globalization undermine democracy and popular sovereignty? Along these lines, an important focus of this course is whether the institutions that currently govern international economic activity are robust enough to survive important political and economic changes that are currently taking place in the world. For example, we will consider whether the domestic political coalitions that have traditionally supported free trade are breaking up as a result of increased international capital mobility and whether the international cooperation necessary to manage the global economy can survive significant changes in the international distribution of power.

The end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union present the U.S. with dramatically new challenges. These challenges take two forms. First, the traditional agendas of U.S. policy with regard to specific regions have been drastically altered. Second, new issues have come to the fore, demanding attention from both the academic and policymaking communities. How are we to make sense of these changes? How are we to develop policies to deal with them? This course will offer an introduction to a number of these issues. Our goals are as follows:

  1. to understand the historical roots of US foreign relations,
  2. to appreciate the complexities of policy making in a democracy,
  3. to engage a number of present-day policy debates and issues, and
  4. to make good oral and written arguments using theoretical insights and historical evidence.

The syllabus is divided into three parts. The first part of the course is a historical look at the conduct of U.S. Foreign Policy, which is essential to fully understanding the present predicament. The second part of the course focuses on the process of foreign policy making. The final section of the course addresses traditional tools of influence and contemporary issues.

The major theme of the course is to examine the joint processes of political and economic transformation. Successful transitions are largely evolutionary. New organizations and institutions arise to replace older, outmoded forms of production and governance. The course will compare and contrast different types of institutional arrangements. Most of the course will be devoted to examining a series of countries and regions that have chosen or been forced into some form of economic and political transition. The examples will include countries moving from centrally planned economies and one-party authoritarian governments to a market economy and democratic governments; developed democracies needing to transform their own economies in the face of global competition and new technologies; and developing countries trying to move away from resource-based economies or to overcome the devastation of local conflicts. Readings include writing by Schumpeter, Krugman, Elster, Przeworski, Kornai, Sachs, Hellman, and Wade, among others.

The course explores the intersection of politics and economics, the impact of politics on the economy, and of the economy on politics. We approach this broad subject matter positively as opposed to normatively. That is, we seek to ascertain empirically and to understand theoretically certain systematic relationships between several key features of the socio-politico-economic environment, rather than to comment on the justness of those relationships. For example, does the periodicity of elections induce cycles in economic policy and perhaps thereby outcomes, and, if so, how, and how might such cycles vary across democracies or over time?

The course proceeds via an in-depth reading of six classic or recent books spanning the substantive realm of political economy.

The seminar will focus on the party system of the European Union. The growing importance of the European Parliament and the general development of the European integration led already to the formation of transnational European Parties and a European Party System.

The following topics will be especially discussed in the seminar:

  • The role of party groups in the European Parliament
  • The two major groups: The conservative "European People's Party" and the "Party of European Socialists"
  • Additional, less main stream groups like the Green Group in the EP
  • The role of parties which are opposing the European integration out of principle reasons (especially of the extreme right and left).

The following questions will be especially raised:

  • Is there an inbuilt conflict between national interests, which the parties have to follow even on the European level, and European interests?
  • Is there a basic "grand coalition" between the two major party groups, on which the past and future development of the EU is built?
  • Are there specific carreer patterns within the European party groups?
  • What are the factors which are influencing party discipline in the European Parliament?

In this seminar we will read a selection of plays by the ancient Greek playwrights, Machiavelli, and Shakespeare as works of political theory which give insight into the central concepts for the study of politics such as justice, political virtue, political leadership, community, foundations of political authority, legitimacy, and obligation.

There will be one play assigned each week. Some background material will also be assigned but the primary focus will be on the plays.

There will be several short papers due during the term and a final paper which analyzes the political theory of a play not read in class.

This course is a seminar on voting and elections in the U.S., with an emphasis on presidential and congressional campaigns. We will examine elections from the perspectives of candidates, political parties, interest groups, the media, and voters. In addition, we will address some basic questions about election laws and processes, as well as the role of elections in American politics. Why do so many Americans fail to vote? How can turnout be increased and is low voter turnout a problem? Why do incumbents tend to win reelection at such high rates? How do the media and campaign finance laws influence electoral outcomes? And, does racial redistricting advance or undermine Black representation?

In this course, we will study diversity and its impact in political, economic, social, and physical environments. We will cast a wide net touching on subjects as varied as racial segregation, what people wear and eat, genetic diversity, comparitve economic advantage, product diversity, ideological diversity, social networks, and measurements of intelligence. Students should have an interest in politics and public policy and be willing to learn the sort of mathematical models used in MBA programs, law schools, and graduate social science programs, e.g., simple game theory and complex systems models. The point of this course is to understand why we see diversity, and how and why homogeneous and heterogeneous systems differ.

This course will examine important debates about the nature of constitutional government and the question of whether there is an appropriate way to interpret the Constitution. The course will begin by looking at what the purpose and function is of a constitution in a political system. Why do we have a Constitution? Does the United States Constitution have a theme? If so, is it constraining or empowering? Moreover, a commitment to constitutionalism raises questions about how the document should be interpreted. Students will be asked to think about if it is possible to construct theories of constitutional interpretation, which can constrain the personal policy preferences of judges. Can the Constitution become easier to understand if judges simply adopted the "appropriate" method of constitutional interpretation? Would the Constitution have a more consistent meaning and be less ideologically tainted if theories of interpretation were adopted with an eye towards the application of neutral principles, the "literal" language of the text and/or the "original intentions" of the framers? Or, in reality, do these theories have no consequences? Furthermore, since a constitution must permit change, we also will explore the amendment process. What is the purpose of amendment, and how do we recognize it? How do we distinguish between amendment and interpretation? Students will be asked to apply many of the theories studied in this seminar to contemporary debates over constitutional meaning. Text: Modern Constitutional Theory: A Reader. John H. Garvey and T.

This seminar will consider the role of law and legal institutions in the management of risk from industrial chemicals. Regulatory decision-making in this arena takes place within an emotionally and politically charged environment one in which both risk to human life and the, at times, very high economic costs of eliminating this risk stand in the balance. The course will examine a diverse set of regulatory responses to this policy dilemma across different historical periods and national settings. Among the issues to be discussed: scientific, precautionary, and economic justifications for regulatory interventions; private versus public law approaches to environmental problems; the promise and limits of economic and informal institutional alternatives to legal regulatory instruments; environmental litigation and citizen participation; and the link between alternative legal norms and regulatory practices and socio-economic inequalities in the distribution of environmental burdens.

There are three important reasons for Americans to study Canadian politics. Seymour Martin Lipset, much of whose career has been devoted to understanding the variations between Canada and the United States, argues that the study of Canada the other country produced by the American Revolution provides crucial insights into the nature of American politics. North America is, he has long argued, the ideal laboratory for students of comparative politics, allowing one to compare two societies that resemble each other enormously in terms of language, economics, culture, and shared history, but whose politics are different in significant ways. The study of Canadian politics helps Americans to better understand their own political system, providing a perspective that is not available to those whose knowledge and understanding of America have never been challenged by comparison to the society most like their own, but which has remained stubbornly different for well over two centuries since their common history as British colonies.

The second reason is the huge and undeniable importance of Canada to the United States. Canada not Mexico, China, or Japan is America's largest trading partner. Total U.S. trade with Canada is almost as great as that between the U.S. and Mexico and Japan combined. Trade with Canada is about four times as great as U.S. trade with China. Beyond the economic intimacy between Canada and the U.S., whose economies have been formally integrated in many ways since the Free Trade Agreement of 1989, there is also a personal intimacy. How many people know that Canada is the sixth largest country of origin for immigrants to the U.S. since the early 1800s; the third ranking country for foreign-born Americans; the second most important source of temporary workers in the U.S.; and the fourth largest source of illegal aliens?

The third reason is the sheer glamour and pizzaz of Canada. Stereotypes aside, can a country that has given America and the world Mike Myers, Jim Carey, Pamela Anderson, Neil Young, and Peter Jennings really be such a dull place?

This course will examine the politics and government of America's largest trading partner. It will cover all of the essential elements of the Canadian political system, including political culture, the constitution, parties and elections, interest groups, and the media, from a perspective that constantly asks how and why these features of the Canadian political scene are similar to or different from what one finds in the United States.

The format for classes will be centered around discussion of assigned readings (about 30-40 pages per week) and several videos that will be shown from time to time. I will invite Canada's longest-serving member of Parliament and current cabinet minister, Herb Gray from Windsor, to visit the class sometime during the term. Andrew Malcolm, member of the editiorial board of the Los Angeles Times and author of The Canadians, has agreed to participate in a conference call with the class at some point in the term.

This course should provide good preparation for those students who subsequently register in the Ottawa internship course offered by the Department of Political Science. Intent to apply for the internship is not, of course, a necessary condition for registering in this course.

Constitutions define the rules by which we are governed. When we write our constitution, we make a contract with one another and with our future selves; we define possibilities and we close doors. This course takes an interest-based approach to the study of constitution-building: through comparisons of nearly a dozen cases we will consider how founders balance short-term (adoption) and long-term (stability) goals. We will examine how different institutional structures create winners and losers in society, and how well founders understand the effect of their designs at the time of adoption. We will study compromises made, evaluating them in terms of both short-term and long-term goals (United States, Israel). We will study constitutional change, thinking about the advantages of meeting the changing needs of society, but also its drawback; the importance of consistency, reliability, legitimacy (Canada, France) We will look at cases where a constitution was imposed upon a society (Japan, Weimar Germany) and where a society borrowed another country's institutional design (Mexico, Argentina), to better understand how local interpretations affect the meaning of the constitution. We will consider the growth of legitimacy as a constitution evolves slowly, and is sometimes not even written (Great Britain, European Union). Many of our cases are federal: one knotty issue is asymmetrical arrangements between the center and the regions (Russia, Canada, European Union). Throughout the course, we will consider the role of courts, of legislatures, and of peoples as interpreters of the constitutional document.

This seminar explores concepts of ethnicity, nations, and nationalism and their interaction with politics. We examine Marxist-Leninist conceptions of nationality and how they were applied in the Soviet Union. After tracing the evolution of Soviet nationalities policy, we examine ethnic policy in areas such as language, religion, and the military. We look at how politics affected ethnic relations in the Soviet Union and its successor states. The role of ethnicity in the dissolution of the USSR is discussed, followed by a study of the ethnic policies, and their consequences, of the post-Soviet states.

Requirements include extensive reading, several short (2-3 page) papers, class participation, and a major research paper. There are no examinations.

The relationships between the states of Western Europe have been transformed since World War 2. States which were previously at best suspicious of, and at worst deeply hostile towards, one another, are now cooperating and integrating on many fronts. This cooperation and integration in Western Europe is now being extended to Central and Eastern Europe.The European Union (EU) is at the heart of these transformed relationships. The fifteen member states of the Union have ceded much of their sovereignty to central institutions and in many key policy areas - including external trade, competition policy, and agricultural policy - are no longer free to do as they wish. Such is the range of EU policy activity and involvement that few policy areas now remain completely in national hands. This course examines the European integration process and the nature of the EU. During the course, particular attention will be given to policy issues of interest to the US, such as the nature of the EU's economic and foreign policies and Europe's growing influence on the world stage. There are three main sections to the course:

  • creating the new Europe
  • governing the new Europe
  • policies of the EU

As well as lectures and seminars, the course will include an EU simulation.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has been one of the most scrutinized international institutions in recent years. Commentators on both the Left and the Right, from corporate executives to Capitol Hill, have derided the Fund for being at best useless and at worst oppressive. To what extent are these claims correct, and what does this tell us about the role of international institutions in an increasingly integrated world? This seminar addresses many of these themes regarding the Fund's role in surveillance, conditionality, and trade and financial liberalization. Our central questions are the extent to which the Fund has influence and how that influence affects outcomes, whose interests are represented by Fund operations, and what the consequences of Fund policies have been. Though the course addresses current events, our goal is to bring social science research techniques to bear on these questions. To this end, students will develop a project over the term in close collaboration with the instructor and write a 20-25 page research paper. Students will also be required to lead class discussion for a given week.
