Course Description

Individual-instruction for Comparative Politics or Asian Studies students wishing to gain familiarity with the Chinese Politics literature. I suggest a range of important studies (see list below) supplemented by works of special interest to you. No regular class; we may meet together as participants wish. I assume some prior knowledge of contemporary Chinese history and government. If you lack that, I would recommend the GOV 322M survey instead. We read works with a critical eye, inquiring into strengths and weaknesses of argument, evidence, and comparative perspective.

Grading Policy

The requirement is to write concise abstracts of 20 or more relevant scholarly works, each on a page or 5x8 card, with: 1) Full cite, 2) Restatement of the main argument(s), even if implicit, and 3) Brief evaluation No paper. "A" for 20 items well abstracted and properly noted as above.
