Theories of Power, Poverty, and Law: In Commemoration of the Contributions of Peter Bachrach--Empowerment and Poverty
Levi, Margaret
PS: Political Science and Politics, v43 n1 p85-87 Jan 2010
My subject is the way Peter Bachrach addressed the question of poverty. But given that I was his student and research assistant and that I am a political scientist largely because of him, it is impossible to resist a few words about the experience of being in his classrooms. Peter was an inspiring teacher of politics. The substantive content of his courses was legendary, and he possessed an extraordinary capacity to elicit participation from classes of pre-feminists at our well-bred women's college. I know this cost him. Peter had an extra shirt in his Bryn Mawr office so that he could change out of the one he had sweated through during the considerable exertions of getting us to talk, let alone think.
