Quotes from others about the person
Professor Broz was ok - you learn more from his assigned readings, which he wrote partly himself. Those were very interesting essays - surprising from a politics and economics class! I felt that he was rather set in his ways, especially about the environment and political parties. I want to see openness to alternative ideas from a professor.
