Yes, I’m about to link directly to a Powerpoint file. I know that’s wack. But it’s really a fun read (flip?) — Kennedy School prof David C. King’s overview of U.S. political culture, pre-Revolution to present. Good grounding in the structure of government (watch for the budget pie-chart) and the deep roots (and in many ways, deep uniqueness) of our present politics.
Okay it’s over.
Here’s King’s homepage.
