Americans have always taken pride in themselves and their nation as being the beacon of democracy and the world's greatest economic and military power. However, the election of Donald Trump to the presidency with his "Make America Great Again" slogan raises an uncomfortable question: What made America great and what, if anything, has happened to change that? The purpose of this course will be to explore the foundations, both public and private, including politics, economics, education, culture, etc. that have made America great, while attempting to define the reasons that led many Americans to feel that we are no longer a great nation.
