FGSS 265, AMST 265|
"By the sweat of thy brow shalt thou eat bread," the Lord enjoined in Genesis.
But who did the hard work in the United States? How did they live? How were they organized? To what ends? Why has their power declined in recent times? These questions are explored in this course, which will reach back to the 18th century but highlight the 20th century.
