Freedom, the Individual and the Law Summary


Freedom, the Individual and the Law by Harry Street

Individual freedom is coming under more complicated and sophisticated threats, which only the law can combat. This book analyzes human-rights issues of the moment, such as media invasions of privacy, miscarriages of justice, the Runciman Royal Commission, euthanasia, Iraqgate at the Old Bailey, police and social-work malpractice, the new Broadcasting and Asylum Acts, attempts to control the security services, discrimination against women, blacks and homosexuals, satellite porn, sado-masochism and prisoners' rights. It criticizes the record of the Government, the public service, the media and the courts in protecting the freedoms of British citizens, explains the impact of the European Convention on Human Rights and argues the case for urgent reforms, including a Freedom of Information Act and a Bill of Rights.
