Law Professor Sidel To Guest On The Connection

University of Iowa law professor Mark Sidel will be a guest on the National Public Radio talk show The Connection to discuss federal and state terrorism laws on Friday, Feb. 25.

The program begins at 9 a.m. It can be heard in Iowa on KUNI radio, 90.9 FM in eastern Iowa, 91.5 FM in north Iowa, 101.7 FM in Des Moines and 102.1 FM in the Quad Cities.

Sidel is the author of the book "More Secure, Less Free? Antiterrorism Policy and Civil Liberties after September 11," the first comprehensive analysis of the full range of anti-terror initiatives undertaken in the United States after the 2001 terrorist attacks. The book was published in September 2004 by the University of Michigan Press.

Hosted by Dick Gordon, The Connection is produced by WBUR radio in Boston and heard on 66 public radio stations across the country. Linking curious, engaged listeners to street-smart conversations, The Connection is energetic, edgy, outside-the-beltway American talk. The two-hour program tackles a vast range of topics. From politics to literature, religion to science, and music to medicine, The Connection approaches each with a modern edge.
