Presidential Lecture: Civil Liberties in Wartime

In the inaugural Presidential Lecture, University President Lee C. Bollinger invited Geoffrey Stone to discuss themes from his newly published book, Perilous Times: Free Speech in Wartime. The book analyzes the conflicts between civil liberties and national security during times of war and has received enthusiastic reviews from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The New Yorker. Following Stone’s presentation, President Bollinger led a panel discussion on issues including the effect of domestic security on civil liberties, free speech and the responsibility of the media.
