Throughout this semester in my class we have discussed a variety of sources of political change in the U.S., including electoral politics, political parties, leadership, pluralism, social movements, law and crisis; however, in the course of our discussions, we have also noticed a tendency of each to resist.
Your task in this paper is to weigh each of these potential sources of political change and to make a case around this question: which of these sources of political change offers the greatest promise for lasting political change in the US? Why? Which of these offer the least promise for lasting political change and why?
The ONLY sources you may use are Caraley, “elections and dilemmas of American democratic governance” Political science quarterly, Spring 1989……..Willis, Certain Trumpets……Baskin, “American Pluralism: Theory, Practice and Ideology,” Journal of Politics, Feb 1970……Lowi, “The Public Philosophy: Interest-Group Liberalism,” American Political Science Review, March 1967……Kettl, System Under Stress
