POL 130 – Short Essay #2 Instructions
In at least 400 words, you will analyze your country at the state level of analysis. Drawing from the
concepts and information from the lecture and readings, analyze your country using at least one of the
three dimensions of the state level of analysis (you can just focus on one, but you need to do so
thoroughly). This means that you should focus on information that falls under the dimensions of
“Power”, “Culture” and/or “Organization” as discussed in the video lecture (and related concepts in the
reading), and identify which of these dimensions the things you are looking at fall under.
Make sure to explain why your information is politically interesting or important. Don’t just tell me
that your country has rainforests and then move on to something else without explaining what the
consequences or importance of those rainforests are for the political situation in that country.
Description gives details, but analysis goes further and explains why those details matter, and what they
mean. Practice thinking like an analyst.
When you cite evidence or data, provide a link or reference to it at the end of your entry (this won’t
count toward your word count). Do not use Wikipedia as a cited reference, though you may use it to
find news articles, academic articles, books, or other sources to cite.
