A Selective Bibliography of Civil Liberties Books: Annotated.
Eichman, Barbara, Comp.
This annotated bibliography of more than 300 titles of the most recent books on civil liberties was selected and reviewed by the American Civil Liberties Union. Books that are dated or contain highly technical information are excluded from this collection intended for general readership; however, there are titles directed and identified for specific audiences, e.g., students, historians, and lawyers. The first of four parts surveys civil liberties books in American history, including several on the origin and activities of the ACLU. Part II, devoted to the Bill of Rights, is subdivided into four areas: (1) general; (2) freedom of belief, expression, and association; (3) due process of law; and (4) equality before the law. Part III lists books on the constitutional aspects of civil liberties including excerpts from Supreme Court and other opinions and analyzing case law. The last section is a guide to reference works and other published bibliographies. Where possible, each entry is represented by a full bibliographic citation including the current price, and an author/title index and a directory listing of publishers and distributors are provided.
