U.S. Government: What to Keep, Change, Eliminate or Add

Instructor:  Larry Litchfield

  • Thursday morning
  • 9:30 – 11:30 am
  • Text required

We will examine the founding documents and continue that effort by tracing the major changes in the system since the eighteenth century. My assumption is that the system is in deep crisis today and citizens need to think about what to keep or change. Class discussion will be emphasized over lecturing.
