David Dow

Discuss liberty and equality during David Dow’s reading and signing session today. The author of American Prophets: How Judicial Activism Makes America Great, Dow says biblical figures such as Jesus, Isaiah and Amos were archetypal activist judges and, by extension, contemporary activist judges are today's prophets. Not only is that proper, Dow argues, it's necessary in order to assure America's place in the world. See if you agree with him today at 7 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet.
