Writing in the Washington Post blog Monkey Cage, 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 to combat 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.”
