Editor reviews

For many of us, civil liberties are something we take for granted, but free speech, the right to vote, the right to equality, and other liberties are under fire constantly, even in Western nations. In this engrossing and comprehensive primer from civil rights activist Tom Head, listeners receive a thorough introduction to the topic. Noted voice performer Richard Aspel's rich voice adds engaging character to the recording, which spans a wide range of topics including religious liberty and ideology, the criminal justice system, race, caste, and gender, and the future of civil liberties. Peppered with relevant quotes from great thinkers, this audiobook will give listeners much to consider.

Summary

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. But civil liberties are 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 and modern slavery to wheelchair access, 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.
