Political Analysis Through the Prince System - PS23

Policy Studies Associates (PSA)

By William D. Coplin and Michael K. O'Leary


Introduces students to the elements of a widely known and used system for making political forecasts and developing political strategies. Students are introduced to the concept of a political issue, to the key concepts of the 'Prince System', and to the way in which the system can be applied to any type of political issue. Included are applications of the system to historic issues, such as the U.S. actions in Vietnam in the 1960s and the American Constitutional Convention, as well as the role of politics in bureaucracies.

Exercises are provided for students to apply the system to a political issue of their choice.
