    Hardcover ☆ On Liberty Epub ´ liberty ebok, On Liberty MOBII HAVE COME TO LOOK MOURNFULLY AT YOU FOR MINUTES ON ENDShami Chakrabarti is a tiny woman it’s hard to tell from the tv screen but I’d say about 8 or 9 inches tall maybe 10 and she is intensely irritating she’s the Tinkerbell of Human Rights always zooming and buzzing around and chucking the dust of moral obligation in your face – that sounds like fun but she has no sense of humour so imagine a glowering Tinkerbell

    Hardcover ☆ On Liberty Epub ´ liberty ebok, On Liberty MOBIThis book is written in the dry and unchallenging style used by many barristers it sets out an argument in favour of Human Rights and in opposition to recent British governments of all persuasions with supporting evidence from well known cases that have been in our news over the past decade and in unpretentious language that aims for clarity and simplicity It has no literary pretensions This approach would work better if the Home Office referred to as Mor

    Hardcover ☆ On Liberty Epub ´ liberty ebok, On Liberty MOBIThis is a fascinating analysis of the effect of human rights legislation and the erosion of our human rights since 911 and the implementation of increasingly restrictive legislation supposedly designed to counter terrorism Its very factual in that the arguments are backed up by evidence of how such legislation has had a wider impact on our freedoms and how this could develop further leaving too much power in the hands of the auth

    Hardcover ☆ On Liberty Epub ´ liberty ebok, On Liberty MOBIA really great exploration of the importance of our human rights and the often difficult balancing act involved in upholding them There was potential for Shami to get much deeper into some of the issues she raises but ultimately this would turn off many readers possibly new to the ide

    Hardcover ☆ On Liberty Epub ´ liberty ebok, On Liberty MOBII really did not realise how vulnerable our human rights actually are Fascinating and poignant read “Human rights empower the vulnerable and irritate and inconvenience the mighty but trust me you won’t know what you had until it’s gone”

    Hardcover ☆ On Liberty Epub ´ liberty ebok, On Liberty MOBIThis is Shami Chakrabarti's autobiography of her professional life concentrating mainly on her time at campaigning organisation Liberty In it she discusses many of the pressures that come with occupying legal posts in the Government and in the third sector and offers genuine insight into law is practised in these different settings I really enjoyed these bits of the bookI'm surprised to find myself saying that I enjoyed her extensive discussion and defense of Human Rights Law rather less From my completely non expert position I completely support the principle of Human Rights and haven't heard any convincing argument as to why the Human Rights Act should be changed or repealed But I had two slight problems with Chakrabarti's discussion of the topic in this bookThe first was that I struggled to find consistency in

    Hardcover ☆ On Liberty Epub ´ liberty ebok, On Liberty MOBIA really important book It tackles topics like the Human Rights Act prisoners' voting rights and police snooping all things I thought I had a clear opinion on and all things that Chakrabarti either crystallised or altered in her argumentsMy criticisms are few The book isn't ambitious enough as far as I'm concerned You can't evoke John Stuart Mill and then spend your entire word count consumed by legal matters A little philosophy would have been greatThe writing also isn't of the highest quality Maybe I've been spoilt by literary dexterity lately but the prose was a little clunky and metaphors occasionally creaky This is thrown into stark relief when Chakrabarti quotes her eloquent human rights heroesThat's not to say that On Liberty isn't clear and informative A vital read if you care about civil liberties not just for yourself but for society at large And you should definitely care

    Hardcover ☆ On Liberty Epub ´ liberty ebok, On Liberty MOBI35 still waiting on my half star GoodreadsI guess it was appropriate that I finish this book on the same day that I went to see the Human Rights and Human Wrongs exhibition at the Photography Gallery Shami Chakrabarti takes us on a a path and demonstrates how during her time at Liberty a day before 911 our government both Labour and Conservative led has done its very best to chip away at our civil liberties and make it easier to criminalise the most vulnerable in our societyIt is a shame that despite the history of the world so many of us need constant reminders that human rights are important
