Course Description:

This class will focus upon the sociopolitical experience of conservative and often reactionary movements in selected countries. The first half of the class will examine conservative theorists from the late 18th and 19th centuries, covering thinkers in Great Britain, France, the United States, Germany, and Italy. The second half of the class will focus on conservative thinkers from the 20th century into the present. Rather than looking at conservatism in different national contexts, this part of the classwill focus more at different varieties of conservative thinking: from fascism, paleoconservatism, neoconservatism, fiscal and religious conservatism, libertarianism, and neorealism.
