Soviet Politics, 1917-91
CAS PO 370
Meets with CAS IR 363. Analysis of the structure and functioning of major political institutions - government bureaucracy, Communist party, and others - and polity-society relations during the 74 years of the USSR's existence. Prime focus is institutional rather than historical and deals with the Soviet political "game" as it was played. This course cannot be taken for credit in addition to the course with the same title that was previously numbered CAS PO 363.
