Readings for Next Week (Feb. 4 and 6)

For Friday and Monday, we are reading several critics of modern democracy, largely undertaken from an elitist perspective.

The first is Hannah More’s “Village Politics.” You can also find an interesting discussion of More’s pamphlet here (this is not assigned, but it is short, and I think you’ll find it useful).

You can find Madison’s Federalist 10 here and Federalist 51 here.

Finally, Edmund Burke’s “Speech to the Electors of Bristol” is here.
