This seminar is designed to examine the concepts and approaches currently used by scholars of comparative politics, and to apply these to the transition to democracy that is taking place in many parts of the world. Through readings and discussion, this seminar will help students understand why politicians create, sustain, and at times even destroy democratic institutions. It will draw upon nineteenth and twentieth century developments in selected countries from Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.
