This course surveys the institutions of government and the
development of democracy. We will begin with an overview of five
country cases: Great Britain, Germany, Russia, China and India.
Subsequently, we will explore major concepts such as political
culture; representation of interests; parliamentary versus
presidential systems; majoritarian and consensus democracy;
democratic transformation; and the state's role in the economy.
