POL 3910:  HONORS SEMINAR
Fall 2003

Exam 2 (final)


Answer any four of the five questions shown.  All questions count equally.  Turn in your answers to me (in my office or my department mailbox) in typed / printed form by 3:55 p.m. on Wednesday, December 17.

Limit your answers to the word limits shown at the end of each question.  (Note:  325 words is about 1 standard-format page.)  These limits are for your and my protection, so you won't feel driven to write a dissertation and I won't have to read one.  You need not reach the stated number of words in order to provide an excellent answer (or to get an excellent grade).  As a matter of fact, I have built some slack into the word limits, so your reaching the word limit may make me think your answer worse rather than better.

Please follow these standards:

QUESTIONS

  1. Define the first face of power, and present an example from the Gaventa text of a situation in which it was exercised.  (Limit:  325 words)
  2. Define the second face of power, and present an example from the Gaventa text of a situation in which it was exercised.  (Limit:  325 words)
  3. Define the third face of power, and present an example from the Gaventa text of a situation in which it was exercised.  (Limit:  325 words)
