What is the origin and meaning of American “conservatism”? What principles and programs have defined a “conservative” or “right-wing” pole in United States politics? This course will examine the contours of American politics after the founding of the republic, beginning with the disputes over slavery and continuing through the twentieth-century opposition of “New Deal liberalism” and anti-statist “laissez-faire” ideology. We will conclude with an attempt to understand the lineage of the sharp political divides of our present national politics.
