Tocqueville's Democracy in America
Last offered in 2010-2011
This course is on the "reading group" model, based on class discussion rather than lecture. Each week, the class reads a certain portion of Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, and several students prepare short discussion papers. The course focuses on aspects of the book that bear on constitutional issues, broadly defined. This section will be limited to an enrollment of 16 students, who will be selected by lottery (8 Law and 8 Non-Law, graduate or upper division, students).
