Iraq was much more complicated with a 79 country coalition, to say nothing of having to operate in conjunction with iranian militias.

Recent coalition operations, particularly in Libya against the Qaddafi regime and in Iraq against ISIS, required that the United States partner with groups and states it would otherwise never do so. In Libya it was with local Islamist groups. Iraq was much more complicated with a 79 country coalition, to say nothing of having to operate in conjunction with Iranian militias. What are the challenges in fighting with partners with such divergent objectives, and how can these be managed throughout the war so the U.S. might achieve its aims?
How does the National Defense Strategy (article attached) promote jointness? Identify and discuss how joint concepts in the NDS relate to at least one previous joint concept (per Sloan) and describe their similarities and differences.

Write a short 3-5 page critical analysis essay (750-1250 words) on how you would improve one specific study cited by the authors (you will need to read the original article in order to conduct a thorough analysis; use the google scholar to locate a copy of the cited article).

This module focused on the various ways in which scholars have attempted to understand the impact of GOTV (get out the vote) tactics in political campaigns, utilizing a variety of methodological approaches. Write a short 3-5 page critical analysis essay (750-1250 words) on how you would improve one specific study cited by the authors (you will need to read the original article in order to conduct a thorough analysis; use the Google Scholar to locate a copy of the cited article). Be sure to lay out your proposed update clearly and methodically (i.e., plainly make the case what aspects of the study could use improvement and why plus how you would implement the improvement in your own, follow-up study). Remember: this is not a summary/book report. This is your opportunity to show me you have not only read the material (which I assume you have done) but that you have thought critically about the material and engaged with it thoughtfully with your classmates. Studies that can be used are from the book: Green, D. P., & Gerber, A. S. (2019). Get out the vote: How to increase voter turnout. Brookings Institution Press.;

Review the instructions
How to write a précis.
No more than one page, single spaced, 12 pt. font.
A précis summarizes the author’s overall argument (thesis) and shows the logical thread of the argument and the supports provided. An effective précis will show the major contributions of the work to the field, or how the author has managed to differentiate his or her topic from others. This is what makes the work “unique” and thus, publishable. A précis should never be more than one page in length (single spaced) as it is a useful tool for graduate students in remembering the specific arguments of a particular author – both in writing seminar papers and in studying for the comprehensive exam. Remember, the précis is meant to offer a summary and should not contain quotes from the work itself.

Each student is responsible for writing one paper, approximately 12-18 pages in length (double-spaced, times new roman, 12-point font).

Each student is responsible for writing one paper, approximately 12-18 pages in length (double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font). Research Design: think of this as a journal or conference quality research paper, without doing the actual research. Your paper must pose a unique and appropriate political science research question that is properly motivated, use the literature of the field to develop theoretical expectations about a relationship, and pose a suggested course of collecting and analyzing data that would allow a researcher to evaluate the question. In your conclusion you can speculate about findings, but you do not need to perform the research. Part 2: you will write a literature review; this will require going beyond the readings assigned for the semester (12-18 pages)

Conservatives counter by saying they are simply returning to an older precedent that had been ignored by liberals.

What constitutes an appropriate role for the judiciary? Some people argue that courts have become too powerful and that judges legislate from the bench. What does it mean for a court to be activist? What does it mean for a court to show judicial restraint? Although conservatives have long complained about the activism of liberal justices and judges, in recent years liberals have pointed out that conservative judges and justices are now more likely to overturn precedents and question the power of elected institutions of government. Conservatives counter by saying they are simply returning to an older precedent that had been ignored by liberals. If both liberals and conservatives engage in judicial activism, what is the role of the concept of “activism” (perhaps judicial activism is just a term used to describe a court decision you disagree with)?

Early 20th century (t. roosevelt to hoover): address chapters 8 & 9.

Read the Milkis and Nelson book, The American Presidency. Choose one of the historical eras (see below) to provide the focus of your paper. Write an essay in which you assess the growth (or lack thereof) of presidential power. Identify the specific aspects of presidential power that are affected in this era and WHY they changed. Address any one (1) of the following historical eras of the presidency: 1. Early presidents (Washington to Buchanan): address chapters 3, 4, & 5. 2. Civil War era (Lincoln to McKinley): address chapters 6 & 7. 3. Early 20th century (T. Roosevelt to Hoover): address chapters 8 & 9. 4. Mid-20th century (FDR to Carter): address chapters 10 & 11. 5. Recent presidents (Reagan to Obama): address chapters 12, 13, 14, & 15. (in the 9th edition, this would be chapters 12 & 13)

This is intended to help you manage the workload and for me to gauge whether your project is on the right track and provide feedback early, if needed, on the direction of the project.

Campaign Memo: advise a candidate/organization on how best to run their campaign, given what academics know about campaigns Instructions Each student is responsible for writing one paper, approximately 12-18 pages in length (double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font). Campaign Memo: think of your role as a campaign or political organization advisor or campaign manager. Given the research in the field, how would you advise your candidate to campaign or how would you advise the political organization to GOTV (get out the vote), given what we know from academia? For example, how might you advise the organization to utilize some, but not all, available GOTV methods. Alternatively, you may craft a media campaign for your candidate, given what academics know about the impact of campaign advertisements. Your memo will incorporate findings from political science, but must be written for the layperson to understand. Ultimately, you are distilling political science research in a digestible, actionable way for a candidate or organization to make use of to further their electoral goals. These papers will be completed in three parts. This is intended to help you manage the workload and for me to gauge whether your project is on the right track and provide feedback early, if needed, on the direction of the project. Part 1: you will complete a 1-page introduction that states a thesis, or research question, and provides a basic outline of your paper (10% of overall paper and worth 40 points) (due Sept 19).
