This course will conclude a review of American political history since 1950. We began with a Republican president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and are ending with a Republican, Donald J. Trump. How did the country move from the leadership of a former general to that of a real estate developer? How did the Republican Party move from a party that included a liberal, internationalist wing (in addition to a western, isolationist, individualist base), to a party openly appealing to both nativism and plutocracy? And how did the Democrats move so far from their New Deal coalition?
