Why and how are these factors important for democracy: participation, pluralism, developmentalism, protection, and performance?
Textbooks: Ellen Grigsby (2015). Analyzing Politics 6th Edition. (Belmont: Wadsworth Thompson)
3+ pages each (they can and should be longer), based on a Chapter Question, starting with the textbook then at least two other sources from any legitimate mainstream book, journal article, periodical, or newspaper (in that order of importance; email me if you are unsure of a source’s legitimacy). No dictionaries or encyclopedias, especially Wikipedia, are allowed. You must properly cite a source using the APA Style for anything that is not common knowledge, let alone if you quote from it. The more sources and citations, the better your grade will be (good social science needs cited facts to back it up). I will also expect these Essays to get better and longer as the class progresses. Review the Example under Course Documents. Use standard formatting (double-spaced, 12 point Times or Times New Roman, normal margins, page numbering, etc.). Do not do a Title Page or sub-headings. Do a Works Cites section (which will not count for length)
