The Emerging Police State: Resisting Illegitimate Authority

The Emerging Police State: Resisting Illegitimate Authority




The defiance, anger, passion and optimism of America’s "most celebrated and most detested" radical lawyer, William Kunstler, ring throughout this selection of his unpublished speeches. The consequence of Kunstler’s outspoken opposition to war, racism and political repression was an extensive FBI file, which included secretly recorded transcripts of many of his public speeches, some of which are published here.

The introduction by Michael Ratner, President of the New York Center for Constitutional Rights and attorney for the Camp X-Ray prisoners from Afghanistan, points out Kunstler’s words are even more prescient today than in his time.
