Approaches to American Polititcs
This seminar introduces participants to broad and encompassing interpretations of American politics. We critically examine conflicting arguments about the character, contents, driving forces, and boundaries of political debate and public policy in the United States. The role of the Constitution and state forms, of political culture, of regionalism, and of relations between capitalism and democracy in shaping American politics are specifically investigated.
