An Almanac of Liberty
by William O. Douglas

Contains a page for each day of the year and story on each page. Some are related to liberty, but most are related to civil rights and welfare. Douglas is an FDR-type liberal who treats every major Roosevelt policy, no matter how idiotic, as an advancement of liberty and justice. There is also too much about the decisions of the Supreme Court. Most of their decisions affect only civil rights, not natural rights. Nevertheless, the book has quite a few worthwhile articles.

Year Read: 1978
