Press Release

Pulitizer Prize-winning author and co-founder of The American Prospect, Paul Starr, discusses his new book at a Cambridge Forum moderated by Robert Kuttner, editor of The American Prospect and Senior fellow at Demos, a New York-based think tank.

In Freedom's Power: The True Force of Liberalism, Starr articulates the "liberal principle" of constitutionally balanced power with protected individual freedoms that has given prosperity to America for the past two centuries.  But, this is now being  being undermined by constant conservative attacks.  How, given two terms of Bush, can this tradition be restored?  Or, is it too late?   Has this valued tradition become obsolete under attack by right wing, religious pundits?

Paul Starr, professor of sociology and public policy at Princeton University has also written The Social Transformation of American Medicine which received the 1984 Pulitizer Prize and the Creation of Media that was honored with the 2005 Goldsmith Book Prize.

The discussion starts at 7:30 p.m., 3 Church Street.  Audiences questions are encouraged.  Cambridge Forum is taped and edited for public radio broadcast.  Edited CDs are available to the public by contacting 617-495-2727.   Select forums can be viewed in their entirety on demand by visiting our website at www.cambridgeforum.org and clicking on the WGBH Forum Network.
