Somin Previews Forthcoming Book
Professor Ilya Somin previewed his forthcoming book, Democracy and Political Ignorance, during a March 21, 2013, presentation for Campbell University's Politics, Law, and Economics Lecture series. The event was the second in this year's series of lectures.
Somin gave a 50-minute lecture, which he opened by introducing the idea that voter ignorance was a matter of concern at least as far back as the origins of democracy in ancient Greece. The program concluded with a 10-minute question and answer session, after which attendees enjoyed an open reception.
