Professor David Tubbs Writes Book on Controversial Topic
New York—In his new book, Freedom's Orphans: Contemporary Liberalism and the Fate of American Children, David Tubbs, Assistant Professor of Politics at The King’s College, explores a series of questions relating to children’s welfare and public policy. By evaluating recent developments in political theory and constitutional law, the book documents the increasing indifference of liberal theorists and jurists to what were long considered essential elements of children’s well-being.
The book is already receiving praise. Steven D. Smith of the University of San Diego remarked that, “David Tubbs offers a refreshing and needed supplement to the positions commonly taken in academia." Daniel N. Robinson of Georgetown University said, "Not only will this book stimulate and inform scholars in a range of disciplines--from social science, history, and political philosophy to child development--but the general public should and will also take an interest.”
Tubbs, a fellow of the Witherspoon Institute, came to The King’s College in 2005 and teaches Public Policy and Constitutional Law. He received his B.A. in Political Science with minors in History and Russian from Penn State University, and later earned his M.A. and Ph. D. in Politics at Princeton University.
The official release date of the book was September 26, 2007. The book is being published by Princeton University Press, and has been issued in both paperback and hardback.
