Over the course of the 20th century, the federal government grew dramatically—especially following the advent of the Great Society—as did divisions in American political and social life. Abroad, America emerged as the world’s greatest power, fighting and winning two World Wars and a Cold War. This seminar will consider the major political and historical developments and events of the previous century, including the rise of progressivism, liberalism, and the administrative state, the revolutions of the 1960s, and Communism and Nazism.
