授業の概要・目的 This course focuses on a wide range of literatures on comparative politics. In keeping with the spirit of comparative political science, most lectures involve a key paired comparison of two countries. We will also demonstrate how paired comparisons are changeable, given the types of questions one is pursuing. We will concentrate on six countries in Southeast Asia: Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and Burma. To fulfill the purpose of this course, we will discuss key themes from a comparative perspective, including the study of institutions, state formation and state-society relations, types of regime, political culture, political economy, and resistance and revolution.
到達目標 To encouage students to think beyond the normative understanding of "Southeast Asia" and look into critical contemporary issues facing the region--issues that had their historical origin. Also, to expect student's active participation in class discussion, from the students' viewpoint that may challenge and contest the normative understanding of this region.

成績評価の方法・観点 The student grade is divided into the following: essays (50%); contribution to class discussion (40%); attendance (10%)
履修要件 Each student is required to read the week’s assignment in its entirety before coming to class. (The books/articles are available at the CSEAS library.) Each student will write a 2-3 page critical review essay on one of the readings to be submitted the day before class (so I can read it and prepare my comments). If you fail to submit the essay on time, you need not appear in class. One student will be assigned to lead each week’s discussion. The reflection essay is not a mere summary of the book/article. It should contain at the very least:
a. The book’s or books’ main thesis/theses (or in other words, what is the author trying to convince us of?)
b. The manner in which the author supports the thesis (or how the author uses evidence to support his/her arguments)
c. Other issues that are raised as supplementary themes or sub-themes
d. The significance of the book(s) to Southeast Asian studies and to comparative politics
Your essays should examine the themes more in depth than the readings allow. They should be comparative in scope; that is, compare and contrast between two countries.
授業外学習(予習・復習)等 Sometime students will be requested to study out of class and will be assigned to read class materials, to make a summary and possibly to make a presentation in class later.
