Book Description

4 Feb 2010

Join the first, most comprehensive discussion on 'liberty' - the defining issue of the twenty-first Century. With fear of terrorism, crime and social chaos putting our ideal of individual liberty very much into retreat, how can we maintain the principles we fought so hard to attain?

History provides a guide to answering this question. What Price Liberty? takes us through four centuries of civil liberty; how it was constructed, and has been re-thought and re-fought to adapt to new circumstances. An essential and utterly enlightening discussion, What Price Liberty? provides the material and arguments with which we can make sense of our times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well above my intellectual pay grade I fear. 9 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't want to give it 3 stars because I am sure that someone more competent would rate it the full 5. Unfortunately for me, it is a dense, unforgiving journey that never lets up. I hadn't the grey-cell count to keep up I suppose, and that is a reflection on me, not the author.
