Theories of Democracy

In this course students examine the ideas and conditions that have given rise to modern democracies. Students read works by Locke, Mill, de Tocqueville, Madison, Jefferson, Schumpeter, and Dahl. Students consider these theories in light of current movements by traditionally excluded groups, such as women, African Americans, the Basques, and black South Africans.
