History professor makes New York Times

August 04, 2012, CoLA

A letter written by professor Robbie Lieberman of the History department was featured in the July 7 New York Times opinion section. Her letter, in a response to a July 4 column titled "The Downside of Liberty," asserts that blaming counterculture movements of the 1960s for the "unshackled capitalism" of today are a distortion of history. The letter by Lieberman, author of "Prairie Power: Voices of the 1960s Midwestern Student Protest," can be viewed here.
