Liberty in Books: Madmen, Intellectuals and Academic Scribblers
MAY 14, 2013 by EDWARD J. LOPEZ, WAYNE LEIGHTON
In this webinar, Wayne Leighton and Edward Lopez talk about their book, "Liberty in Books: Madmen, Intellectuals, and Academic Scribblers". They argue that a crisis is neither necessary nor sufficient for meaningful political reform. Ideas have consequences only when the right conditions of time and place present themselves, and only when certain individuals -- we call them political entrepreneurs -- seize the opportunity.
