Product description

Review

"Compelling . . . [A] powerful, inspiring collection." The Christian Science Monitor

"Forceful, beautifully written and often humorous . . . The essays in
Fight of the Century may be brief, but each packs a mighty wallop. . . . This is a book to read, share and keep." Associated Press

"Full of struggle, emotion, fear, resilience, hope, and triumph." 
Los Angeles Review of Books

“Moving . . . Entertaining . . . It’s enlightening to watch some of our most masterly literary portraitists restore the warts and wardrobes, the motivations and machinations to those whose stories have been stripped down to surnames or pseudonyms.”
—Monica Youn, New York Times Book Review

"Vigorous, informative, and well-organized, this outstanding collection befits the ACLU’s substantial impact on American law and society."
 
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A stunning collection of original and topical essays . . . [that] vividly brings consequential court cases to life." 
Booklist (starred review)

"A finely edited almanac of lively, contextually grounded stories that read like the greatest hits of freedom . . . Provides insights that are both riveting and refreshingly diverse." 
Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
