Course Description The purpose of the course is to examine the historical and political development of the United States from a multicultural perspective. The course will examine the principle events, developments, and problems of the United States from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, emphasizing the role of class, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality in American history and politics. The course will examine the diversity of the Asian American experience within the context of the development of the United States as a developing nation- state and world power and within the context of its race relations with other minorities such as Native Americans, African Americans, and Mexican Americans. The social history of Asian America forms an important part of the broad understanding of the social, economic, and political contours of America. In turn, the contours of American history and political institutions help us to better understand the particular social experiences of Asians and Asian Americans as immigrants, workers, and small business entrepreneurs and the impact of social institutions upon the formation of families, and communities. In addition, the course will examine the history and politics of California government, contrasting the similarities and differences between California and U.S. Constitutions, the relation between the federal and state and local governments, and contemporary issues of California government and politics.
