POLI 7706 The American Founding (Spring: 3 )
This seminar will examine the political debates associated with the American Founding. We will read some of the more important pre-Founding texts; examine the debate between and among the Federalists and Anti-Federalists; and study some of the immediate post-Founding discussions over such contested matters as: the nature of the Union, the powers of states, the status of slavery, the role of political parties, and the appropriate way to understand the presidency, the Congress, and the federal courts.
