PRICE OF DEMOCRACY

   In the early 1950s, New York City’s teachers and professors became the targets of massive investigations into their political beliefs and associations. Those who refused to cooperate in the questioning were fired. "Priests of Our Democracy" by Marjorie Heins tells of the teachers and professors who resisted, those who collaborated, and those whose battles led to landmark Supreme Court decisions. Combining political and legal history with personal stories, the book aims to detail how the anti-communist excesses of the 1950s inspired the Supreme Court to recognize the vital role of teachers and professors in American democracy. 6 p.m. Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables.
