Professor Steven Davis Presents Talk on New Book

  • Tuesday, Jul 3, 2018

Madison, Wis. (July 3, 2018) – Steven Davis, Professor of Political Science, will speak Steve-Davis-Book-Cover about his new book In Defense of Public Lands: The Case Against Privatization and Transfer at 7:00 pm, Thursday, July 19, 2018, at the Barnes & Nobles at East Towne Mall in Madison.

In the book, Professor Davis argues against the privatization of America’s public lands by examining ecological, economic, and political perspectives of acclaimed experts. Davis analyzes the history of public lands at the local, state, and federal levels, and suggests that it is in the nation’s best interest to keep these lands in the control of the public.

A portion of book sales on this evening will benefit the UW Arboretum.

Dr. Davis holds both an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Political Science from Loyola University in Chicago.
