Publisher's Summary

From identification cards to how we protect our property, public debate rages over what our basic human rights are and how they are to be protected.
In this trenchant and provocative audiobook, Peter Hitchens sets out to show that popular views of these hotly contested issues - from crime and punishment to so-called 'soft drugs' - are based on mistaken beliefs, massaged figures, and cheap slogans. His powerful and counterintuitive conclusions make challenging listening for those on both the Left and the Right and are essential listening for all concerned with creating a lawful and peaceful society.
The Abolition of Liberty argues that because of the misdemeanours of the few, the liberty of the many is seriously jeopardised.


What the Critics Say

"It's fair to say that Peter Hitchens remains one of the most misrepresented figures in the British media.... Hitchens is in reality one of the most thought-provoking and intelligent commentators on life in contemporary Britain." (Neil Clark, Spectator)

Typically rigorous and compelling. Recommended

Peter Hitchens' analysis of the systemic failures of the modem British policing and justice systems is typically rigorous and compelling, and its lessons and warnings extend far outside Britain's confines.

Highly recommended.
