This course examines how American democracy and government work. Although the course serves as an introduction to American government, it also shows how well established institutions have been altered by modern politics, and it introduces students to key ideas in political science. We place particular emphasis on the increasingly significant role that electoral pressures and the permanent campaign play in the workings of American government.
