Michael Thies brings a specialist's theoretical knowledge of legislative institutions, electoral systems, and party competition to the study of Japanese politics. He is the co-author (with Frances McCall Rosenbluth) of "Japan Transformed: Political Change and Economic Restructuring" (Princeton Univ. Press) and author of articles on electoral politics and policy-making in Japan, appearing in such journals as the American Journal of Political Science, Legislative Studies Quarterly, and Comparative Political Studies. His recent work studies the logic of delegation in coalition formation and the electoral foundations of legislative organization. He offers a popular graduate course on political institutions, delegation, and policy-making, and an introductory undergraduate course in comparative politics. He spent 1999-2000 as a National Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
