'It is very hard to either over-praise this book or to underestimate [this book's] importance. As a scholarly work it gives everything that could be sought from it. In times when the very notion of liberty as an expression of democratic freedom in under ideological attack, and where the right to freedom unless captivity is the result of due process is regarded as inconvenient, Kevin Costello's book assumes international significance', Peter Charleton, Dublin University Legal Journal.
