Woodard vs Elazar

Once you’ve read them both, I’d like you to write a 300-500 word reflection that covers the following:
1) What is Woodard’s main argument in this piece? What evidence does he use to support it?
2) How does Woodard’s theory differ from Elazar’s?
3) Do you Woodard’s theory compelling and believable? Why or why not? Which of these regions have you lived in (if any)? Does Woodard’s description of that region sound accurate to your experience living there?
4) How does knowing about this theory change the way you look at the country? How does this help you study the variation in states?
5) Does one of these eleven political cultures speak to you the most? In other words, which one seems to be the closest to what you currently think about government and politics?
