Course Description

This seminar explores the characteristics and dynamics of non-democratic regimes: how and why they come about, what sustains them,why some people resist and others do not, and how and why they decline and fall. There are no formal methodological prerequisites for this course. However,during our journey through autocracy we will encounter a variety of approaches,including formal, large-N statistical, small-N qualitative, narrative, and literary.
