PSCI 179 - Asian Politics

This class is an introduction to the complex history and dynamic politics of Asian countries.  The countries of Asia are highly diverse, so this introductory course will necessarily be broad rather than deep, and will focus primarily on the major powers in Asia.  The course will focus on the history and politics of selected states, including China, Japan, and South Korea, with a particular emphasis on their political-economic choices and efforts (successful or otherwise) to democratize. 

Anticipated Terms Offered: Once a year
