Comparative Party Politics
W 1:00-3:00 -- Room: TBA -- Instructor: Rosas
In this seminar we will review some of the concepts and theories employed in the comparative study of political parties and party systems. Most of the canonical literature has been developed with an eye to the political experience of advanced industrial democracies, but has been extended more recently into the study of inchoate democracies, where the programmatic character of political parties cannot necessarily be taken for granted. We will focus on the constitutional and societal determinants, and on the political and economic consequences, of different party system arrangements, centering mostly on European and Latin American politics. 3 units. (Comparative)
Approaches to Comparative Politics
R 10:00-12:00 -- Room: TBA -- Instructor: Sened
Problems of theory construction and testing in a comparative framework. Both underdeveloped and industrial societies are discussed. Primary emphasis placed on increasing student's abilities to criticize and develop theoretical ideas. 3 units. (Comparative)
I would have made the same diagnosis as the Apple Store, but I still don't like not having my computer for another fucking week. After it came back with a fresh logic board, I ran it for about 3 hours on the battery. I plugged it in at home, did some more work for about 45 minutes, and as I was connecting to my computer to transfer Lee's files, this time it at least gave a kernel panic screen. Subsequently it wouldn't boot (but, unlike before, would give a boot chime).
So the powerbook is back off to the Depot, but now we know that there is a problem specifically with DC power. I'll also exchange my adapter, just in case.
