CJ341A Lectures Fall 2013

MS-PowerPoint files (PPTX) distributed as PDF notes during classroom lectures. Useful for study and review; however, as of Fall 2011, I have abolished Death by PowerPoint and now mostly conduct discussions with occasional videos to enliven the three-hour course sessions.

Supplementary materials and links also posted here.
