Description
Lifelong liberal Kirsten Powers blasts the Left's forced march towards conformity in an exposé of the illiberal war on free speech. No longer champions of tolerance and free speech, the "illiberal Left" now viciously attacks and silences anyone with alternative points of view. Powers asks, "What ever happened to free speech in America?"

      • premium: False
      • source: Charles Krauthammer, Pulitzer Prize–winning syndicated columnist and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Things That Matter
      • content:

        "A searing and courageous indictment of the growing intolerance of the American left--written with passion and eloquence by one of the nation's most principled and fair-minded liberals. An important book on a subject many are simply too afraid to touch."

      • premium: False
      • source: Brit Hume, Fox News senior political analyst
      • content: "Kirsten Powers convincingly calls out her fellow liberals for being astonishingly illiberal. A great read."
      • premium: False
      • source: Juan Williams, Fox News political analyst and New York Times bestselling author of Muzzled
      • content: "Kirsten Powers explodes and skewers 'The Silencing'--the demonizing and repression of different views, especially conservative views. Here is a liberal calling out other supposedly liberal people who claim to believe in free speech but tell all who disagree with them to shut up. Hallelujah--you are lucky to have this book in your hands!"
      • premium: False
      • source: Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Miracles and Bonhoeffer
      • content: "I salute my friend Kirsten Powers for boldly and eloquently breaking the spiral of silence on silencing."
      • premium: False
      • source: Ron Fournier, senior political columnist and editorial director of National Journal
      • content: "Tolerance and free expression are founding values of our republic and yet they're under attack from the extreme wings of the American political spectrum. Shining a harsh light on the 'illiberal left,' Kirsten Powers exposes a grim campaign to silence speech. This is an important book."
      • premium: False
      • source: George F. Will, Pulitzer Prize–winning syndicated columnist and author of the New York Times bestseller A Nice Little Place on the North Side
      • content: "In this examination of the multiplying attacks on freedom of speech, Kirsten Powers casts a cool eye on the damages done to politics, academia, and civic discourse by the aggressive assertion of a perverse new entitlement. It is the postulated right to pass through life without being disturbed, annoyed, offended, or discomposed by the expression of anyone else's thoughts."
