Our Civil Liberties At Risk

From fruitless search warrants to secret surveillance, says David K. Shipler, violations against our civil liberties have accelerated over the past decade. Pulitzer Prize-winner Shipler (The Working Poor and the new The Rights of the People) examines the historical expansion and contraction of our fundamental rights and the stories of individuals who have suffered, measuring what we have lost—and how much we stand to regain by protesting the degradation of the Bill of Rights. Presented by The Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
