Instructor: James L. Walsh, PhD

This course explores the origins and purpose of government generally and the way in which the founders of the American republican experiment chose to deconstruct the various structures employed by nation states since the Classical period. In this summer series, we explore the origins of representative government, the formation of the US Constitution, and the first experiments in republican federalism. Or is that a federalist republic?
