Goluboff's "Vagrant Nation" at AALS

Anders Walker, Saint Louis University School of Law, writes to remind us that the program of the meeting of the Legal History Section of the Association of American Law Schools in San Francisco will be
"Policing the Revolution: Readers Respond to Risa Goluboff's Vagrant Nation: Police Power, Constitutional Change, and the Making of the 1960s."  The session is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 1:30, and will feature a panel including Dean Goluboff, Karen Tani, Rabia Belt, Rebecca Zietlow, and Chris Schmidt.

The book has been getting rave reviews, Michael Klarman declared it "one of the best books of constitutional history ever written," and its focus on police/community tensions could not be more timely.  Copies are available at OUP's website, and early bird registration ends on Nov. 17. See you there!
