Writing in his regular Monkey Cage blog in the Washington Post, Andrew Rudalevige, Bowdoin’s Thomas Brackett Reed Professor of Government, expressed dismay over the level of public ignorance in the US over constitutional issues.

To try and tackle this “constitutional illiteracy,” Monkey Cage is publishing Bowdoin’s “Founding Principles” video series, narrated by Rudalevige, every Tuesday over the summer. The first of the fifteen episodes deals with what he describes as “the most basic of the Constitution’s principles: the separation of powers.”

Read Rudalevige’s latest Monkey Cage political science blog, which features the first of the “Founding Principles” series.
