Until Moodle gets sorted out, here are the syllabuses for my Fall 2015 courses.
Hello! Looking forward to having you in class!
For Emory & Henry student taking STAT 162: Introduction to Statistics for the Social Sciences, there will be three books required. Unfortunately, stats books are pricey.
Kellstedt, Paul and Guy Whitten (2013). The Fundamentals of Political Science Research. New York, NY: Cambridge University Press.
- This book is fairly pricey new ($60), but reasonably priced to rent for the semester via Amazon (about $22) or similar avenue.
Best, Joel (2008). Stat-Spotting: A Field Guide to Identifying Dubious Data. Berkeley: University of California Press.
- New, online, this is about $25. Cheaper used versions are available.
Pollock, Philip H. (2012). An SPSS Companion to Political Analysis. Washington, DC: CQ Press.
- We will be using the data CD that comes with this text. So, unfortunately, you’ll need this version.
- It is $46 new on Amazon.
- Disclaimer: I’m not sure if used versions come with the CD and an access code with the CD.
POLS 314 National and International Security (Fall 2015) has NO required textbooks. All of your readings will be available online or via Moodle. Looking forward to having you in class.
A draft (key word draft! There are a few pieces missing, but those are noted) syllabus is available here POLS314_National_International_Security.
Fall 2015 Book list for E&H students
For POLS 105 Introduction to International Relations, there are two required textbooks. I’ve included the details below.
I’m looking forward to this course! A draft (key word draft) syllabus is available here POLS_105_Intro_International_Relations.
Goldstein, Joshua S. and Jon C. Pevehouse. 2013-2014. International Relations Update, 10th Edition. New York: Pearson.
-To save yourself some money, you can rent this text for the semester via Amazon or other retailer. This text is about $130 new, but renting it for a semester is about $30.
-I will create tests questions from the 10th Edition, update. I will not be responsible for discrepancies in versions, but previous versions of this text are very similar. These previous editions of the textbook are available for purchase at low prices.
Feldman, Noah. 2013. Cool War: The Future of Global Competition. New York: Random House.
-This text will come out with a new edition on September 1. Either edition will be fine. This text can be purchased used for a very reasonable price on Amazon (used for under $10 including shipping).
-We will begin using this text on September 17.
Currently working as an instructor for the “International Ingenuity: Political Simulations and Problem Solving” course for Duke TIP India 2015. Absolutely love teaching this class and getting to work with some incredible people.
More info on the program (along with some of my students’ work) can be found here.
Excited to announce that I’ve successfully defended my dissertation and will join the faculty as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics, Law, and International Relations at Emory & Henry College in Fall 2015.
For students signed up for INTL1100H in Spring 2015, I have attached the syllabus here: INTL1100H. Some details on this syllabus might change, the required books will not (I highly recommend renting/buying used versions of the texts!).
Looking forward to a great semester with all of you!
The link below is for the Honors Global Issues course I’ll be teaching in the Fall. For students, the readings might change a bit, but the required books will not.
