Course Detail: LLAPOL - The Rupture of American Politics, 2012-2019
Is this one of the most turbulent and divisive periods in American history? The media and social scientists are inclined to say "yes".

In earlier times the country came close to collapsing from within, and at times its very survival has been threatened by foreign enemies.

We will explore the recent swings and speculate on their meaning. We will discuss where US politics may go in 2020 and beyond.
