Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class to anyone who in interested in the politics of ancient and medieval time period. The professor is very helpful, and funny. This course does require work, and discussion in class. Also, this is not an easy A class, but very informative. Anyone can get a good grade in the class if the person does his/her work on time, and follow instruction.
The highlights of this course were the readings we have done throughout the course, and the group project discussion. In the class, we read books by Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Machiavelli, St. Augustine and other prominent philosophers of the past. There are a lot of discussion about God, love and the ethics of war, which requires lots of critical thinking. I learned to think outside of the box, and how our political system have evolved over time.

Advice for students:
I would advise students who want to take this class that participation is important even though it is not required in the class. The reason is that this class consists of writing papers, and for that analysing and discussing the reading is very important, which can be done in the class with teacher and other students.
