Professor Terry's class has been one of my favorite classes at Columbia. She is extremely sharp, has a strong, firecracker personality, and can be very blunt, which keeps her lectures and anecdotes rather interesting and at times, humorous. She is an engaging lecturer who is clearly a passionate expert in her field. Her lectures aren't a rehash of the readings; instead, she provides new insight and frameworks by which to further analyse the readings she assigns. I learned a lot about Korean Politics, and her focus on policy and practicality was refreshing.
