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.
