Visions of Liberty

PDF-file by Ira Glasser

Visions of Liberty PDF ebook download Lifelong champion of civil liberties and executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) from 1978 to 2001, Ira Glasser portrays the trials and triumphs of the great rights contained in the Bill of Rights—freedom of conscience and of expression, fundamental fairness, and equality. These rights, so basic and yet so sacred, were long denied many Americans who, to win them, had to wage lonely battles against greater powers. Visions of Liberty is a powerful and passionate salute to the brave souls who marched, prayed, chained hands, and clawed their way to a brighter future. Words and pictures come together to eloquently depict the struggle for human rights in America. The first chapter traces the roots of the Bill of Rights in English law and the colonial experience. Glasser then elegantly chronicles the struggle for freedom up through the modern age of economic inequality, discrimination based on sexual orientation, and the numerous other social challenges that have arisen in the twenty-first century.
