Events surrounding the release of the paperback version of With Liberty and Justice for Some
Topics: Politics News
(updated below [Thurs.])
The paperback version of my last book, With Liberty and Justice for Some, was released yesterday. Those who wish to do so can obtain it here or here (an excerpt can be read by clicking on the book cover on the Amazon page).
The themes and arguments in it continue to be central to much of what I write. In fact, so many of the new stories on which I’ve focused since the book’s publication are pure expressions of the two-tiered justice system which the book examines (as an added benefit: the red, white and blue cover makes it particularly moving on this most special of all days).
Writing will return to normal in a couple of days. In the meantime, here are several interviews and appearances I’ve done in the past several days concerning the book as well as other topics.
(1) Here is a 10 minute interview I did last night with Alyona Minkovski, who is really a superb interviewer, on the American Surveillance State:
(2) I was also interviewed last night by Eliot Spitzer for his CurrentTV program, in two segments, about the two-tiered justice system examined by the book:
(3) The event I did on Monday night at the Powerhouse Arena with Jamie Kilstein was really excellent. It was a full house of more than 400 people; numerous people traveled long distances to attend; and the discussion afterward was excellent. The audio to the event is here (the audio for the beginning part, with Kilstein’s opening, has poor quality, but everything else after that is very clear).
(4) Last night, I was on Lawrence O’Donnell’s MSNBC Last Word show, along with Paul Campos, talking about some of the issues surrounding the Supreme Court’s health care decision and the reports that Chief Justice Roberts switched his vote. That can be viewed here:
UPDATE [Thurs.]: I was on Democracy Now this morning, with Juan Gonzalez, discussing a variety of topics, including the Obama administration’s failure to prosecute Wall Street executives; the two segments can be seen below:
