AMERICAN CONSTITUTIONAL HISTOR
This Course is intended to look at key developments of American History through the prism of Supreme Court decisions and their aftermath. In essence, this Course will address four questions: (1) How did the Supreme Court reflect and/or affect historic patterns of U.S. development? (2) How did the Supreme Court respond to, alleviate and/or exacerbate major crises and political issues in U.S. history? (3) How did the Supreme Court impact the U.S. legal and economic framework? (4) How did the Supreme Court’s perception of individual and collective rights and liberties, and of the function and role of Governments — both Federal and State — evolve over time?
