Above Section Meets With WEUR-W 301

This is an introductory course to West European politics.  It is
designed to introduce you to a variety of different aspects of
European political culture, political parties, interest groups,
political institutions.  European integregation, and new social
movements.  The goals of this course are threefold.  First, you
should learn in some detail about three countries which we will
focus on: France, Germany, and Great Britain.  Secondly, you should
learn to evaluate some important theories about politics.  And last,
you should learn to think rigorously and comparatively about
politics.  Comparative thinking is an extremely useful analytical
tool and we will frequently employ this method in the course to
demonstrate its utility.
