University of Texas at Austin Professor Philip Bobbitt will be at the School of Law today, March 2, at 5:30 p.m. to discuss and sign his latest book, “Terror and Consent: The Wars for the Twenty-First Century” (Knopf Publishing, 2008).

In the lead essay of The New York Times Sunday Book Review, historian Niall Ferguson called Bobbitt’s book “the most profound book to have been written on the subject of American foreign policy since the attacks of 9/11—indeed, since the end of the Cold War.”

“Terror and Consent” is Bobbitt’s seventh book.

Bobbitt is a distinguished senior lecturer in the Law School and a senior fellow at the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law, which is hosting the talk in the Law School’s Eidman Courtroom.

Bobbitt also holds the Herbert Wechsler Chair of Jurisprudence at the Columbia University Law School. As one of the nation’s leading constitutional theorists, his interests include not only constitutional law but also international security and the history of strategy.

Copies of Bobbitt’s book may be purchased before the event at the University Co-op East near the Law School.
