"The story of America in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries cannot be told without reference to the American conservative movement. In this seminar, American Enterprise Institute senior fellow Matthew Continetti will lead students in an exploration of how the ideas of the American right influenced political figures and public policy—and how the right itself changed into a national-populist movement dominated by Donald Trump."
