James S. Sherman Associate Professor of Government Philip Klinkner
Klinkner Kicks Off Faculty Lecture Series
James S. Sherman Associate Professor of Government Philip Klinkner gave a lecture titled "Is the Old Racism Really Dead" as the first guest in Hamilton's Faculty Lecture Series. He presented data he had collected concerning racial attitudes in Alabama and South Carolina based on a referenda in the two states that would remove a long dead law prohibiting blacks and whites to marry. Edgar B. Graves Professor of History Alfred Kelly asked Klinkner about what had drawn voters to the polls in each instance and if the draw had skewed his data.

The next lecturer in the Faculty Lecture Series is scheduled for October 25. More ...

Cheng Li Quoted in Reuters
China expert and professor of government Cheng Li was quoted in a Reuters article about China’s Fourth generation. This generation of China’s political leaders was among tens of millions of China’s “sent-down” youths and banished cadres of the 1966-76 Cultural Revolution who met grim rural realities, a violent ideological climate and bitter disillusionment. “This event was a catastrophe for the nation but could be an asset for an individual’s growth,” said Li. He defines the forth generation as those party officials born between 1941 and 1956. Many analysts say the leaders will stay on the road toward collective leadership paved by their immediate predecessors and tackle social threats to stability like unemployment, welfare and peasant tax burden.
