The Abolition of Liberty Book Description:

The wicked, the selfish and the violent, are - according to Peter Hitchens - freer from restraint than they have been since the age of Charles Dickens. In this brilliantly argued book, Hitchens warns that our current approaches to law and order threaten the personal freedoms of the peaceable majority, while failing to reduce crime. This country, he argues, must choose between the supposed human rights of wrongdoers and the liberty of all. His powerful and counter-intuitive conclusions make challenging - and essential - reading for both those on the Left and the Right.
