Drawing on Stanford's motto, "The wind of freedom blows," social scientist Larry Diamond traces the rise of democracy since the 1970s, arguing that freedom is a universal value.
Diamond, an expert on comparative democratic development, was chosen by members of the senior class to give their Class Day Lecture, a more than 40-year tradition on Commencement Weekend. Sponsored by the Stanford Alumni Association, the talk drew thousands of graduating seniors and their families to Maples Pavilion. Diamond is also director of the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law and co-faculty director of the Haas Center for Public Service.
