Civil Liberties: A Beginners Guide

by Tom Head - £9.99  Oneworld Publications (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781851686445 | ISBN 10: 1851686444

Does free speech have limits? Can torture be justified? Who is really in charge of your rights? Every day we are confronted with news of foreign governments who refuse to acknowledge liberties that we in the Western world take for granted, comfortably assuming that ours are protected. But contrary to what public apathy would have you believe, civil liberties are only as strong as the people who uphold them, and they’re nearly always under threat, no matter where you live.
 
Tom Head traverses the globe in order to provide a clear introduction to what civil liberties are and why they're worth defending. From hate speech to wheelchair access, modern slavery to utopian living, this handy guide offers a fascinating global history of civil liberties paired with inspiring advice on how to take an active role in their defence - before it’s too late.
