* My Prior Experience: I usually read about International Relations. * Evaluation activities: There are 10-question weekly quizzes and two peer-graded essays. * Good points: \- Professor Kiichi Fujiwara is very didactic and his video lessons are well organised and divided, contributing to a better understanding of subjects. \- The course has a good rhythm, neither too quick nor too slow, providing good explanation and good examples of each concept. \- There are good exercises: the quizzes contribute to fix some ideias and the essays also make students think about discussed themes. * Bad points: \- There are no rubric for essays, so one does not know exactly the evaluation criteria. * Overall evaluation: "Conditions of War and Peace" was an excellent introductory course about relations between countries. I would recommend it for anyone interested in a first contact with the subject, since it does not demand any prior knowledge.

I would recommend it for anyone interested in a first contact with the subject, since it does not demand any prior knowledge. An awesome introduction to International Relations! (Course taken between October and November 2013).

Excellent course, one of the best I've ever taken. I highly recommend it! The professor is brilliant and the lectures are inspiring. The subject is showed under a very precise and balanced light. I look forward to take another course with the same professor. Take it! You are not going to be disappointed!

The well-paced lectures were most illuminating because the instructor, Prof. Fujiwara was adept at bringing out the various nuances, complexities and paradoxes that lie within this field.
