The Constitution: Sex, Religion and Law: Geoffrey Stone in conversation with Andrew Koppelman
“Sex and the Constitution: Sex, Religion, and Law from America’s Origins to the Twenty-First Century” by Geoffrey R. Stone, professor of law at the University of Chicago, chronicles the regulation of human sexuality from the ancient world to today’s bitter battles over sexual morality and freedom. In his previous award-winning work of history, “Perilous Times: Free Speech in Wartime from the Sedition Act of 1798 to the War on Terrorism,” Stone traced how the First Amendment fared during times of war. Leading the conversation will be Andrew Koppelman, professor of law and political science at Northwestern University and author of “The Tough Luck Constitution and the Assault on Health Care Reform” and “Defending American Religious Neutrality.”
