Comment:
The class has an unusual format since your grade comes solely from a final paper based on required reading. This may make the lectures seem irrelevant, but I thought that not having the stress of preparing students for an exam allowed Prof Ginsberg to delve into different topics, give incredibly interesting lectures and facilitate profound debates.

Pretty good professor with interesting theories on all the material we cover. Lectures are not at all relevant to the exams, but are very interesting to attend if you have the time. Still, you can do very well by just attending section, which is mandatory.

Funny dude, but a boring class. Can be hard to find what to write down in lectures due to his tangents. Overall a relatively easy class, but hard to keep on going to after about 1 1/2 months

Ginsberg is an engaging, funny lecturer but he goes off on tangents. I think he comes to class just to hear himself talk. TA's do all the work, so the ease of the class depends on which TA you get.

Comment:
Entertaining. For intro course to his program it's an expensive story hour. Likes to hear himself talk -very little class partici. No academic rigor, low expectations. Bad sell for the program. Encourages early start on thesis then fails to provide real guidance. Disappointing as a care course.

Take the Washington Internship seminar if you get the chance. Yes, it's an easy A but it's also really really interesting if you like politics. Professor Ginsberg knows everyone and brings in some really great speakers.
