Audible 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.
