This book is a history of the civil liberties records of American presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Barack Obama.

It examines the full range of civil liberties issues: First Amendment rights of freedom of speech, press, and assembly; due process; equal protection, including racial justice, women's rights, and lesbian and gay rights; privacy rights, including reproductive freedom; and national security issues. The book argues that presidents have not protected or advanced civil liberties, and that several have perpetrated some of worst violations. Some Democratic presidents (Wilson and Roosevelt), moreover, have violated civil liberties as badly as some Republican presidents (Nixon and Bush). This is the first book to examine the full civil liberties records of each president (thus, placing a president's record on civil rights with his record on national security issues), and also to compare the performance on particular issues of all the presidents covered.

    Read this as research for my thesis. Interesting perspective and while the author is open about his political beliefs, he fairly bashes Presidents of both parties and their civil liberties violations. I didn't agree with everything in here but there's nothing wrong with that. I think we all need to read more from people with whom we may disagree. Read this as research for my thesis.
