GOVT 81.05 Left and Right : Party Spirit and Ideology in American Politics

We may be "one nation, indivisible," but our oneness is masked by a politics that contains increasingly important partisan divisions. Partisans today see not one but "two Americas"; they want to live in only one of them. Is party spirit a mark of bad citizenship? What is the connection between partisanship and ideology? Would a just society have partisan or ideological divisions? Should we be post-partisans? Readings from history of political thought and political science. Requirements: weekly short papers and final examination. 



The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
