Discussion with Alexander Wohl, author of the forthcoming "Father, Son and Constitution: How Justice Tom Clark and Attorney General Ramsey Clark Shaped American Law and Freedom"

Tuesday, January 31, 2012
12:00 PM - 02:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


Alexander Wohl will discuss the book he is currently completing on Justice (and former Truman attorney general) Tom Clark and his son, former LBJ Attorney General Ramsey Clark. For nearly three quarters of a century of combined public engagement, during some of the most challenging, divisive, and triumphant periods in U.S. history, Tom and Ramsey Clark had a significant influence on presidents, policies, and legal rulings. The book, to be published by the University Press of Kansas, focuses on their impact on American law, policy, and society, with specific attention to the balance between individual liberties and government power. The broad continuum of views the two men demonstrated reflect the continuing tension and uncertainty in this area that continues to resonate in legal and policy battles today.
