GOVT 450 - Politics:East Central Europe
This course will address the dramatic changes that have taken place over the past two decades in the region of East Central Europe. The nations of Eastern Europe have moved from relative political and economic conformity under Soviet domination to diversity and independence. We will study the political, social, economic, and security changes in Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and the former German Democratic Republic. Special attention will be given to the challenge of simultaneous transitions to the market and democracy. Other topics include: the legacies of communism, nationalism, development of a party system, and European integration. Students will be expected to write two essays, take midterm and final examinations, and participate in classroom debates and discussions.
