Tufts University: Tony Smith - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Smith is, without a doubt, the best professor I have had at Tufts. He takes a genuine, personal interest in each of his students in a way few professors do. Each of his lectures is very well organized, and engagingly presented- I was never bored in his classes. He clearly puts a lot of time into preparing the class as a whole and each individual session, and it shows. He encourages involvement from everybody, but doesn't force anything.
The class itself was very good, and I would encourage anybody with an interest in US Foreign Policy to take a class on this or a similar subject from Prof. Smith. The class focused primarily on the ideology that led up to the Iraq War, and understanding how the US got to where it is today, rather than where we're going.

A lot of reading, all of which is better than your average poli sci reading. Two big papers- that's where most of the grade came from. Paper assignments were reasonably straightforward, and Smith is easily available to help students sort out what to do.
