« back to classes page
The "American Experience", sometimes called the "American Dream" rises from the ashes of war again and again since the founding of the American Nation in the late 18th Century.  In the 19th Century the term "Manifest Destiny" exploded to the forefront of the explanations and justifications for frontier "pioneers" to patriotically fill in all that land between both oceans no matter the personal sacrifice. The 20th Century, pockmarked with a new form of poverty and massive systems failure, resonates to this day with the hopes and achievements of successfully "Making the World Safe for Democracy". Our 21st Century mantras have often clustered around themes of multiple faces of "Keep America Great"...students will leave this course knowing why. Recommended books-Plunkitt of Tammany Hall: A Series of Very Plain Talks on Very Practical Politics (Signet Classics) by William L. Riordan, Peter Quinn, and Philip Freeman. The Assault of Reason by Al Gore.
