Spring 2008

Note from the Editor

This edition of Critique is comprised of winning papers from the 16th Annual Illinois State University Conference for Students of Political Science, held on April 4, 2008. Papers presented by Kimberly Casey, Joanna K. Rozpedowski and co-authors Nilüfer Duygu Eriten and Jennifer Romine were recognized as the best papers in the graduate section. Kristi St. Charles, Ayelet Haran and Kate Ellis received awards in the undergraduate category. We are pleased to be publishing the work of all of these authors. Together, they illustrate the virtues of a broad range of approaches to political problems. As always, we welcome comments on the papers published in this volume.
