"Glenn Greenwald is the American Left's most fearless political commentator... His rock-ribbed principles and absolute disregard for partisan favor have made U.S. political discourse edgier, more confrontational, and much, much better." —Rachel Maddow

Is today's legal system only concerned with the wealthy? Glenn Greenwald discusses and signs With Liberty and Justice for Some, just out in paperback, with political comedian and radio personality Jamie Kilstein.

About With Liberty and Justice for Some:

From "the most important voice to have entered the political discourse in years" (Bill Moyers), a scathing critique of the two-tiered system of justice that has emerged in America.

From our nation's beginnings, the law was to be the great equalizer in American life, the guarantor of a common set of rules for all. Over the past four decades, however, the principle of equality before the law has been effectively abolished. Instead, a two-tiered system of justice ensures that the country's political and financial class is virtually immune from prosecution, licensed to act without restraint, while the politically powerless are imprisoned with greater ease and in greater numbers than in any other country in the world.

Starting with Watergate, continuing on through the Iran-Contra scandal, and culminating with Obama's shielding of Bush-era officials from prosecution, Glenn Greenwald lays bare the mechanisms that have come to excuse the elite from accountability. He shows how the media, both political parties, and the courts have abetted a process that has produced torture, war crimes, domestic spying, and financial fraud.

Cogent, sharp, and urgent, this is a no-holds-barred indictment of a profoundly un-American system that sanctions immunity at the top and mercilessness for everyone else.
