Templeton Press has a contest going on its new book, New Threats to Freedom,
First Place $500
The winning entry may also be considered for inclusion in the paperback edition of New Threats to Freedom.
The New Threats to Freedom Blog Contest invites bloggers to write about which threat to freedom they think is most critical to our society today. This can be a threat from the book or not.
The contest will be open until noon on August 15, 2010. Winners will be announced by September 1, 2010.
In the twentieth century, free people faced a number of mortal threats, ranging from despotism, fascism, and communism to the looming menace of global terrorism. While the struggle against some of these overt dangers continues, some insidious new threats seem to have slipped past our intellectual defenses. These often unchallenged threats are quietly eroding our hard-won freedoms and, in some cases, are widely accepted as beneficial.
Read the details, enter the contest!
I had the pleasure of interviewing New Threats to Freedom’s editor Adam Bellow a couple of years ago. He’s a great guy, and a wonderful writer. You can buy the book through its website.
