Readings for Next Week (2/7 & 2/9)

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).

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

For Thursday, we are reading Madison’s Federalist 10 and Federalist 51.

I will be re-publishing a few reading questions on these readings soon. Also, please remember that you will have a reading quiz on the course Blackboard site (due Monday night).
