Tropp may seem nice but he is a harsh grader. For a professor who doesn’t teach much material he has very high expectations. He often speeds through necessary information that is required for understanding the political issues in Africa. Be prepared to teach yourself majority of the content. LOTS of reading and each class is discussion style, so be prepared to YAP. You learn a lot but I think the class would have been more effective.

This class was not too bad. There were a few writing assignments, including a 5 page paper and a 10 page paper, but aside from that the work load is rather light, being mostly reading (that can be skimmed).

I took this class as a distribution requirement and would not recommend it if you were to take it for that reason. The lectures are constant talking, and there are never words on the slides. They are also extremely fast-paced. Professor Tropp is also an extremely harsh grader and expects you to know the exact dates of events that happened on his exams. The essays are on books that are pretty boring and very difficult to write and will be picked apart by Professor Tropp.
