================= ECONHIST.TEACH POSTING ================= Mary, I am doing a one semester survey so I have to pick my comparative material carefully; I use a wonderful article by Pfaff comparing Islam and the west at the beginning, and then I use some material from Russia and colonial Africa to help highlight characteristics of the American experience. Because I use an institutionally based approach (I use Hurst"s LAW AND CONDITIONS OF FREEDOM as one of the required readings) the Islam and Russia comparisons are especially useful. ============ FOOTER TO ECONHIST.TEACH POSTING ============ * To post a message to this list, send it to ECONHIST.TEACH@cs.muohio.edu. * To get all the messages posted to this list only once a day, send the message "set ECONHIST.TEACH mail digest" to firstname.lastname@example.org. * To view past posting to this list, look in the directory "List Archive" in the Cliometric Society Server.
