Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Glenn Greenwald is the American Left's most fearless political commentator....His rock-ribbed principles and absolute disregard for partisan favor has made U.S. political discourse edgier, more confrontational, and much, much better."---Rachel Maddow"The first thing I do when I turn on the computer in the morning is go to Glenn Greenwald's blog to see what he said. He is truly one of our greatest writers right now."---Michael Moore"An absolute must-read. Incredibly persuasive, rigorous, and damning."---Christopher Hayes"One of American's forty most popular and widely cited political pundits."---"New York" magazine"One of the smartest new voices to emerge in politics in years."---Markos Moulitsas, founder of "Daily Kos""Perhaps the most influential civil-liberties writer on the Web."- --"American Prospect" --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

The founding principle of the United States was that the rule of law would be the great equalizer in American life, the guarantor of a common set of rules for all. But over the past four decades, this principle has been eviscerated. Starting with Watergate, continuing on through the fraud that caused the 2008 financial crisis, and culminating with Obama's failure to prosecute Bush-era crimes, Glenn Greenwald lays bare the mechanisms that protect America's elite from accountability, while the politically powerless are imprisoned with greater ease and in greater numbers than in any other country in the world. "With Liberty and Justice for Some" exposes a new and profoundly un-American justice system that incentivizes elite criminality, protects an oligarchical political culture, and sanctions immunity at the top and unyielding mercilessness for everyone else. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid critique of the executive branch, small review for those most harmed 14 juin 2015
Par Amazon17 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Greenwald delivers a scathing review of the United States' broken legal system in this book from 2012. Known for his powerful, smart critiques of greater powers, the author quickly points out how unequal the justice system is between the economic elite and everyday citizenry. From Bush's epic plundering of Iraq and horrific torture regime to Obama's droning of the Middle East and silencing of whistleblowers to the financial calamity of 2008, Greenwald analyzes how each group has avoided legal action -- even helping to rewrite laws and provide retroactive immunity to criminals.

Much of the book covers well tread territory, though. I've read books on all of these major topics from "Dirty Wars" to "The Big Short" that chronicle the terrifying rise of income inequality, totalitarian war powers, and unequal justice. Greenwald tends to scratch the surface on all these areas, rather than going into greater detail. Two-thirds of the book is dedicated to primarily the executive branch's wrongdoings, which felt frustrating. I expected there to be more emphasis on those most disenfranchised by the inequality.

Greenwald, as always, is a skillful writer and columnist. His words ring true and research proves his point: the justice system is broken, but we can improve it. Two stars removed due to the aforementioned points regarding novelty of coverage and depth for poorest classes who are suffering most.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fine and infuriating book. 1 octobre 2013

Glen Greenwald has done it again. Equality under the law is an expression that most Americans believe in expect to be the case. It is not. Mr. Greenwald makes the case, and I think very well that equality under the law is illusionary for most of us. A corporation in trouble with the law? Just get you friends in congress to change the law. Malfeasance in office, high crimes and misdemeanors? Not to worry, your fellow politicians in congress and the White House will poor oil on the waters regardless of party. Like many authors, Mr. Greenwald is branded as a liberal or leftist but what he really is is a journalist looking for the truth. You will not find him soft peddling on the Democrats nor Republicans and he provides enough context and factual examples to make hard hitting and important points on the corruption of a bedrock tenet of American principal.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If You Only Read One Book This Year . . . 2 juin 2014
Par Ann E. Galloway - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Glenn Greenwald reminds us that we have a Constitution whose framers thought wisely and carefully about what laws would be required to ensure Liberty and Justice for ALL. Several of the Founding Fathers are quoted, providing their reasons for including many of the most critical passages.

Today, we are living with a Supreme Court decision, in Citizens United, that equates money with free speech -- and which essentially has resulted in legalized bribery in the form of campaign contributions to candidates for office: (S)he who gives, gets. And when criminality is exposed, high fliers who can afford the best lawyers rarely go to jail; those without the means to afford a good lawyer have little chance to prove innocence. Thus "With Liberty and Justice for Some."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Greenwald is a voice that should be heard 21 octobre 2014
Par JensenAndMore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I became aware of Glenn Greewald because of his involvement with Edward Snowden. It turns out, he's a great author as well.

With Liberty and Justice for Some is a well-researched and well-argued book about how politicians and large business owners very literally rule our country and are not bound by the same laws as us. Several examples are used to support this argument: The Bush administration wasn't punished for torturing people, communications companies weren't punished for selling user information to the government. The book touches upon many ideas that Snowden would confirm later on.

Be a responsible citizen and read this book. Support Greenwald. He argues from fact and his facts are trenchant.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thought- Provoking 30 janvier 2012
Par Elana - Publié sur Amazon.com

From the pardon of Richard Nixon to the retroactive legislation providing the telecons immunity from the Bush Administration's eavesdropping program to President Obama's insistence not to prosecute members of the Bush administration saying, "I also have a belief that we need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards." Greenwald succeeds in leaving the reader with a queasy feeling about the state of America's judicial system.

While 90% of the book focused on the benefits that the elite receive when it comes to "justice," Greenwald also addresses the problems that now exist because of the fervor of "law and order" candidates. From the privatization of jails, to how the poor fare in the judicial system, Greenwald paints a picture that makes you want to get involved in changing this system.

However, as other reviewers have pointed out, Greenwald doesn't offer up any suggestions on what individuals can do to start changing this system. We know that one tweet started the Occupy Wall Street Movement, and one woman's Facebook page created enough momentum to make Bank of America reverse a decision about charging to use debit cards.

Greenwald offers up a rationale why we tolerate such an unfair system.

"So why do Americans tolerate such a draconian legal system, one which imprisons exceptionally large numbers of people for no good reason? The answer is clear: because most people believe-correctly- that they themselves are unlikely to be sucked into the its vortex. They are right to believe this because the two-tiered justice system that separates elites from ordinary Americans intensifies as one moves down the rungs of power and privilege. The rich and powerful are able to commit crimes with impunity far more easily than middle-class Americans; but similarly, middle-class criminals are far more likely to escape unpunished than the poorest among us."

What is missing from this book are recommendations on what people can do to increase the chatter about this topic. Whether its tweeting some of the disturbing statistics, writing blog posts,or pointing to organizations that are working on this issue, Greenwald let's his readers down by not offering action steps that can make a difference.
