The National Council for Civil Liberties and the policing of interwar politics

At liberty to protest

Janet Clark

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This book fills a gap in the literature on the social history of civil liberty in twentieth century Britain
  • Unique narrative of the emerging civil liberties movement in Britain and the responses of the police and those in authority to its damning criticisms of legislation and police powers.
  • The ideal of British policing was challenged on a number of fronts in the interwar period. The role of the NCCL (the precursor of Liberty) has, until now, been missing from this discourse.
  • Explores issues of public order and policing that continue to be highly significant today.
  • Essential reading for courses studying the historical development of civil liberties and policing in Britain and for general reader interest in this topical and enduring subject.
