GOVT 108 CM - Recent American Politics, 1970s to the Present

 Against the backdrop of the post-World War II years, this course explores American politics and political development from the pivotal 1970s to the present. Focus is on controversies arising from such interrelated areas as economic and social regulation; values issues (e.g., abortion, religion in public life, and the character and private morality of public officials); federal fiscal policies; foreign involvements, the “war on terror,” and presidential authority; judicial activism; and civil rights and “identity politics.” A major theme is the relationship of established patterns and ideologies to continuity and change, often in the face of unanticipated events. Cross-listed as HIST 124B CM  .
