Summary:Civil liberties are central to the freedoms that Australians value. They affirm the rights of all to protection from arbitrary authority and enable minorities to flourish; but they have also frequently been disputed. From arguments over censorship in the 1930s to present-day debates on mandatory sentencing, the concept of civil liberties - and its impact on our everyday lives - is a recurring motif of public life. Liberty is packed with new insights into the way civil liberties have been understood in Australia, tracing the formation of the Australian Council for Civil Liberties (ACCL), and it.
