HIST 328 - FROM ROOSEVELT TO REAGAN:RISE&FALL OF CONTEMPORARY LIBERALISM
This course examines how liberalism was defined at various points in contemporary America: from its rapid rise during the Great Depression under President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal through its gradual fall in the decades before and after Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980. We will discuss how the New Deal augmented the size and scope of the federal government, shifted the boundaries of race, and created a powerful welfare state and labor movement--while, paradoxically, also catering to wealthy capitalists. We then watch liberalism shift rightward toward the center after World War II with the onset of the Cold War, making it ripe for attack on both the left and the right of the political spectrum by the 1960s. In the final portion of the class, we trace the growth of the New Right from the early 1960s through Ronald Reagan's election and beyond.
