Resources for GVPT 459N

Home

This guide will help you identify and locate sources for your GVPT 359N assignments:
1. Write a 5-7 page research paper about a national group or movement of your choice, addressing its origins, characteristics, and goals.
2. Write a 5-7 page paper about a nationalist conflict of your choice, using any of the course readings to analyze and explain your chosen conflict. The most important question your paper should answer is: what makes people behave like nationalists? That is to say, what is it that gets people out of their houses and into the fight?
