The Public Square
Ruth O’Brien, Series Editor

The Public Square series showcase some of the world's finest public intellectuals writing on topics at the forefront of public discourse. It features authors--be they professors, journalists, essayists, poets, or novelists--whose distinctive voices resonate both within, and far beyond, the confines of the academy. Artful, accessible, and analytical, their essays contribute to international dialogue, shape and frame national debates, and engage with enduring and fundamental questions.
