Tufts University: Jeffrey Taliaferro - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Prof. Taliaferro is a professor that knows what he's talking about. True that he gets his dates off sometimes but when you have that depth and range of information, those kinds of things can be overlooked. True that his demeanor is arrogant at times but with his credentials, it's to be expected some. Also, I think that students that find him irritating and arrogant are either ones expecting a lax professor and class that they can breeze through, or they are arrogant themselves and won't acknowledge that a professor does know more than the student who has done only a few readings (if at all) verses years of research. You will either love or hate Taliaferro but I, for one, like this guy's style of being organized and structured so that students know what to expect.

The reading is heavy but if you really love international relations and especially the theoretical aspect of IR, then you will find most of the readings interesting. Although some are indeed dry, just suffer through it in about 30 minutes and you're good. Stop being lazy.
