With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful
Greenwald offers a scathing critique of the two-tiered system of
justice that has emerged in America. The law was to be the great
equalizer in American life. Instead, a two-tiered system of justice
ensures that the country's political and financial class is
virtually immune from prosecution, licensed to act without
restraint, while the politically powerless are imprisoned with
greater ease and in greater numbers than in any other country in
the world. 288 pp. 60,000 print.
"Greenwald lets no one off the hook in demonstrating the vast differences in legal recourse between rich and poor, powerful and weak... When the executive, judicial and legislative branches collude to avoid enforcement, lawlessness is the end result."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Glenn Greenwald's latest book is an absolute must-read. Incredibly persuasive, rigorous and damning." --Christopher Hayes "Glenn Greenwald is not just the American Left's most fearless political commentator; his fearlessness is such that he has shifted the expectations for everyone else, too. His rock-ribbed principles and absolute disregard for partisan favor have made U.S. political discourse edgier, more confrontational, and much, much better." --Rachel Maddow "The first thing I do when I turn on the computer in the morning is go to Glenn Greenwald's blog to see what he said. He is truly one of our greatest writers right now." --Michael Moore "The most important voice to have entered the political discourse in years." --Bill Moyers
