Welcome to Political Science 50! We hope that you will find this class enjoyable and useful. Political Science 50 has two major purposes. One is to introduce you to the political systems of Britain and France. The second is to present some of the analytic approaches political scientists have used to compare these and other political systems. We will concern ourselves principally with three approaches: (1) The institutional approach , which emphasizes the importance of a country's political institutions; (2) the cultural approach which stresses a society's underlying norms; and, (3) the class analytic approach, which places emphasis on the importance of social class factors. The purpose of these approaches is to help you become familiar with some of the factors that make for a stable or unstable democratic political system.
