9780099458333: Just Law: The Changing Face of Justice - And Why it Matters to Us All

Acute, questioning, humane and passionately concerned for justice, Helena Kennedy is one of the most powerful voices in legal circles in Britain today. Here she roundly challenges the record of modern governments over the fundamental values of equality, fairness and respect for human dignity. She argues that in the last twenty years we have seen a steady erosion of civil liberties, culminating today in extraordinary legislation that undermines long established freedoms.

From the Inside Flap:

This thought-provoking study probes issues such as privacy, genetics, trial by jury, women in prison, the welfare system, asylum, and terrorism and asks: Is the climate of fear being deliberately used by the government to roll back our liberties?

From the Hardcover edition.
