GOVT 192 CM - Liberalism and Conservatism

The course examines the character of the political opinions calling themselves liberalism and conservatism, from their emergence in the 18th century to their flourishing and possible decline in the 20th century and beyond. Though the course will focus on their American forms, it will contrast these with the appropriate British and Continental counterparts. Throughout, attention will be paid to the variety of doctrines within each school of thought, and to what unites as well as divides the politics of liberalism and conservatism as a whole.
