... will be of particular interest to modern constitutional scholars. Alberta Law Review What a delightful surprise to find a book on this topic of such value to both the serious scholar and the casual student of politics, history, or law. The Struggle for Civil Liberties weaves legal actions and movements through the much larger and more important social, political, and philosophical fabric, moving with the confidence and pace of the best histories. Even better, it does so without sacrificing analysis, and it demonstrates a satisfying level of detail and precision in its discussion of the legal arguments and tactics on all sides of the issues. Alberta Law Review ... a major study on the history of civil liberties. Ian Leigh, Times Higher Education Supplement It is difficult to quarrel with the substance of the case which the authors compellingly make. This is an important book which is likely to be the primary reference for future discussions of civil liberties in the first half of the twentieth century. Law Quarterly Review This is a powerful piece of advocacy. I'd pick Ewing and Gearty for my counsels any day. Bernard Porter, London Review of Books
