PSCI 391: ST: The Statesmanship of Winston Churchill
This course examines the political thought and leadership of Britain's World War II leader, Winston S. Churchill. Students will read various articles and speeches by Churchill, his early novel, and sections of his history of the First World War, as well as some secondary sources. After considering Churchill's more general views on such topics as leadership, war, modern science, and mass democracy, the course will focus on what is often thought to be his failed leadership during World War I and on his efforts to rally the allies against German rearmament and expansion in the 1930s. Prerequisite: sophomore standing.
