HIST021 PO - Dynamics of Power in the US

When Offered: Each fall.
Instructor(s): V. Silverman
Credit: 1

US history in the last 150 years has revolved around battles over equity in the economy, the control of government, the fighting of wars and the possibilities for social justice. This course introduces students to the study of these conflicts through an examination of power in politics, society and the economy. Students will learn key historical methods as they consider four crucial periods: The disappointing aftermath of the Civil War, the fight over corporate industrial capitalism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the triumph of the statist New Deal order in the 1930s and the return of inequality in the neoliberalism of recent decades. Because historical questions are informed by contemporary issues and debates, the class will also address current events that emerge from the way Americans settled these older conflicts. (Core Course: United States)
This course has been revised for spring 2021.  
Satisfies the following General Education Requirement(s), subject to conditions explained in the Degree Requirements section of this Catalog:
