PRESIDENTS AS POOR CUSTODIANS ?

Author Sam Walker will discuss his new book, Presidents and Civil Liberties from Wilson to Obama: A Story of Poor Custodians, examining the civil liberties record of American presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Barack Obama at 3 pm on Tuesday, October 2, at the Dole Institute of Politics, 2350 Petefish Drive in Lawrence.

Walker explores the full range of civil liberties issues from First Amendment rights of freedom of speech to national security issues, and how some presidents have not protected or advanced these liberties. Walker's appearance is co­sponsored by ACLU of Kansas and Western Missouri.
