Syllabus updated: January 20, 2005 (PDF)

This course provides an introduction to United States history from the 1770s through the 1970s. We will examine major debates and developments in politics, culture, and the economy, paying particularly close attention to debates over such institutions of political economy as slavery and industrial capitalism, and to the question of what makes a good citizen. And we will practice the skills of interpreting evidence and building effective arguments.

May 2, 2005: A practice final exam is here. If you can't download the PDF, here is the exam in HTML.
