Historical Study A-12
INTERNATIONAL CONFLICT AND COOPERATION IN THE MODERN WORLD
Professors Andrew Moravcsik and A.I. Johnston
Spring 2004
This course is an introduction to the causes and character of international conflict and cooperation, both in
military and economic affairs. Historical cases will be used to examine various theories of international
politics and to expand our understanding of the range of possible forms of international behavior.
Requirements: Lectures are given on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-11:30 AM in Lowell Lecture
Hall. In addition, sections will meet every week for one and one-half hours. Sections will begin meeting
the week of February 16, and attendance in sections is mandatory.
There will be a midterm exam during the term and a final exam at the end of the course. The midterm
will be a take-home exam distributed at the end of lecture on Thursday, March 18, and due by 10:00 AM
on Tuesday, March 23. Seniors writing honors theses may elect not to take the midterm exam if they
notify their section leader at least one week before the exam is distributed. Failure to take the midterm
without a documented excuse (e.g., doctor’s note) will result automatically in a failing grade for the
course. The final exam will be scheduled by the registrar’s office.
There will be five short (two-page, 500 words) written assignments during the term. These response
papers are intended to help students develop the skills needed for the examinations, and to provide
students with regular feedback from section leaders about their grasp of the course material. These papers
will be graded and will comprise roughly one-half of your section participation grade.
Grading: The final exam will count for 40% of your final grade (70% for senior thesis writers not taking
the midterm), the mid-term for 30%, and section participation (including written work) for 30%. Grading
of exams and papers will be done by your TF, under supervision of the faculty, and will be doublechecked to ensure uniformity across sections. TFs are not permitted to change grades, except in cases of
arithmetic errors. The only other way to change a grade is to have the exam or paper in question re-graded
by the professors, without knowledge of the previous grade and with the possibility of the grade either
increasing or decreasing. If you wish to invoke this option, contact the head TF.
Deadlines and Penalties: Failure to fulfill any course requirement, including section participation,
automatically leads to failure of the course. Late work will be penalized 1/3 grade per day or any part
thereof. In other words, a B+ becomes a B if it is up to one day late. Attendance will count towards the
section participation grade, and students who are absent from three or more sections without a medical or
other appropriate excuse, approved in advance by the TF, will automatically fail the course.
Plagiarism: Please read and familiarize yourself with the statement on plagiarism available on the course
web site. If you are still uncertain as to what constitutes plagiarism please to not hesitate to contact your
section leader or the head TF. Plagiarism is a very serious academic offense. Harvard faculty can use
various internet-based programs for detecting plagiarism if necessary.
Sectioning: Electronic sectioning will open as soon as section times and rooms have been confirmed, and
an announcement will be posted on the course web site. Sectioning is currently scheduled to close at the
end of the day on Friday, February 13. Section assignments should be available by e-mail and on the web
site no later than Sunday, February 15. Sections will begin the week of February 16. It is extremely
important that you participate in electronic sectioning. Students failing to do so should contact the head
TF as soon as possible, but are not guaranteed to be able to participate in the course.

purchase at the Coop, and can also be found on reserve at Lamont and Hilles. The syllabus is carefully
marked into indicate where each reading may be found. Readings not otherwise marked can be found in

mandatory. Material from the films may be discussed in section and will appear on written examinations.
