In this landmark study, a thorough audit of British compliance with international human rights standards is carried out. The book identifies 44 violations and 19 near violations. It provides an up-to-date description of law and practice with respect of freedom of information; freedom of expression; freedom of assembly and public protest; freedom of association and trade unionism; state surveillance; the right to life and liberty; and the right to vote and stand in elections.

This study looks at both the political and legal aspects of political freedom in the UK. It measures political freedom specifically against international standards and provides the 'Human Rights Index' - a new system for measuring political rights which may be used to monitor new legislation in the UK from next year or in any country in the rest of the world. This is the most rigorous and systematic review of the political and legal systems for protecting political freedom in the UK yet published. It challenges the existing political and legal system and finds it wanting.

The Three Pillars of Liberty will be essential reading for all those interested in their rights and the rights of others.
