Unclear how Scotty Minkoff doesn't have a single review written? He deserves a golden nugget. Assignments are clear and straightforward. Grading is more than fair. Lectures are extremely interesting (machine politics, national urban policy, fragmentation, etc.). His is easily the best professor in Barnard's political science department.
Don't be late to lectures! I wish upon no one the shame Scotty Minkoff inflicts on those who are late to class.
