CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Stephen L. Carter, a distinguished professor at Yale Law School, will discuss the U.S. decision to go to war and ethical issues surrounding this decision as a part of the Reaching for Higher Ground series at the University of Northern Iowa, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Oct. 18, in Lang Hall Auditorium.

Carter's most recent book, "The Violence of Peace: America's Wars in the Age of Obama," is about how President Barack Obama has handled wartime policies during his presidency. It discusses how the president has, surprisingly to some, continued many of former President George W. Bush's policies in the war on terror. At the lecture, Carter will speak further about the possible reasoning behind these actions.

There will be a book signing and reception following the lecture; UNI University Book & Supply will be on site selling the book.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Tabatha Cruz, program coordinator of UNI's Center for Multicultural Education, at 319-273-2250 or
