HIST 160 PZ -Violent Dissent in U.S. Politics

Institution: Pitzer

Description: Has political violence undertaken against the state or without state permission represented a deviation from (and an obstacle to) American political development, or has it been essential to American political development? Is non-state political violence aberrant or fundamental in American history? This course examines instances of violent dissent and resistance and the way they fit into the established narratives about the American past. The course will also examine the question of legitimacy, asking if Americans have always believed that government has a monopoly on legitimate violence.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
