Designed to provide Kennedy School students and upper-class students from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences with a deep understanding of the forces behind modern American politics. Always offered in election years, it will provide students with knowledge and historical context for those forces that affect all American elections. Each topic will be approached historically and empirically -- drawing from the best history and political science available. In addition to extensive reading, students will be required to choose a certain number of Institute of Politics lectures and study groups to attend when they are appropriate to the subject matter of the course.

Not offered in 2014-15.
