POSC 373 - American Democracy

3 hours
Democracy was not a new form of government when the United States was formed, but American democracy was a unique experiment in self-government that revolutionized the practical application of democracy. This reading-intensive course will examine what makes American democracy-American. This will be primarily accomplished by studying two major commentaries on American democracy written by non-Americans: Tocqueville’s Democracy in America and Lord Bryce’s The American Commonwealth. American democracy seems to work, –why, how, and for how long?

This course will satisfy the core area requirement in social sciences.
