Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

The readings are excellent. Tells you about the history of metropolitan political, social, educational, residential, and transportation systems for major cities like Chicago and New York. Guttfreund is a much better lecturer than a discussion leader. He's quick to shoot people down about ideas that he does not agree with. He's also quick to pick favorites even if they're major slackers. Makes you turn in in-depth questions on weekly readings and grades them (ughh). Pretty anal guy.

A very knowledgeable and well-known professor who is over-extended and over-committed. In seminar she can be engaging, but is occasionally too opinionated, leaving those who disagree with her frustrated and alienated. Is not prompt in returning papers and assignments, but is therefore flexible with deadlines. Some people love her, others hate her. Is a good person to know and can be very helpful if you are interested in local community/political work.
