Can we identify a traditional set of common political values and attitudes that have bound our nation together to create E Pluribus Unum? Should these values, which underlie our political culture, change as our population becomes more diverse? Will our commitment to diversity undermine or enhance our cohesion as one nation? The course will also analyze and examine how America changed, why America changed, identify the forces changing America, and assess the various conceptions of the America of tomorrow.
