Political Science | West European Politics
Y335 | 3417 | Furniss
This course has three major aims. The first is to describe and attempt to
understand the broad contours of political life in a number of European
countries. The second is to provide opportunities to think, speak,, and
write logically and persuasively about important political problems. The
third is to draw out comparative lessons in terms of party orientations, the
potential challenge of new parties and pressure groups, and futures for
European "welfare states". We also will spend some time looking at the issue
Written assignments will include a short answer midterm examination,
an essay final examination, a choice between two short or one longer paper,
and a group project. I would be pleased to discuss any aspect of the course.
