Around the Polisci Blogosphere

Jun 30 '13

This is the inaugural post in what we hope will be a weekly feature, highlighting interesting posts from blogs written by political scientists or by people in sister disciplines that bear directly on topical political issues.   The posts will therefore be a bit more focused than the polyglot assortment in our typical “potpourri.”  Assisting us with this feature is Bennett Butler, a Princeton University undergraduate in the Department of Politics.  We’re glad to have his help.

  • Stephen Walt: Will the internet make democracies more like dictatorships, and vice versa?
  • Jay Ulfelder: Why Egyptian politics is like a truel.  (That’s not a typo.)
  • Lionel Beehner: Do presidential administrations really have “bandwidth”?
  • Richard Pildes: The secret to reforming the VRA
  • Eric Ostermeier: Everything you’d ever want to know about Senate special elections
