This course will explore major ideological and institutional shifts in the ways political elites and citizens view government and the impact this thinking has had on popular rule in the United States. The seminar is intended to afford senior majors the opportunity to meet and discuss issues more fully than is possible in regular department courses, including the justification, in democratic theory, for the administrative state and strong executive leadership, as well as the ways in which a more centralized federal system promotes, or undermines, meaningful citizen participation.
Seminar discussions and written assignments.
