More About: MICHAEL STEVENS SMITH

 

Michael Steven Smith is the author, editor, and co-editor of six books, mostly recently "The Emerging Police State," by William M. Kunstler. He has testified before committees of the United States Congress and the United Nations on human rights issues.

Michael Ratner is the president of the Center for Constitutional Rights and author of Guantanamo: What the World Should Know. Michael has worked for decades, as a crusader for human rights both at home and abroad litigating many cases against international human rights violators resulting in millions of dollars in judgments for abuse victims and expanding the possibilities of international law. He acted as a principal counsel in the successful suit to close the camp for HIV-positive Haitian refugees on Guantanamo Base, Cuba. Over the years, he has litigated a dozen cases challenging a President’s authority to go to war, without congressional approval. In the wake of the September 11 attacks, the Center has focused its efforts on the constitutionality of indefinite detention and the restrictions on civil liberties as defined by the unfolding terms of a permanent war. Among his many honors are: Trial Lawyer of the Year from the Trial lawyers for Public Justice, The Columbia Law School Public Interest Law Foundation Award, and the North Star Community Frederick Douglass Award.
Heidi Boghosian is the executive director of the National Lawyers Guild, a progressive bar association established in 1937.

The Emerging Police State: Resisting Illegitimate Authority

Author: William Kunstler
ISBN: 1-876175-79-6
Publisher: Ocean Press
Publish Date: 2004
Title: The Emerging Police State: Resisting Illegitimate Authority

The defiance, anger, passion and optimism of America's "most celebrated and most detested" radical lawyer, William Kunstler, ring throughout this selection of his unpublished speeches. The consequence of Kunstler's outspoken opposition to war, racism and political repression was an extensive FBI file, which included secretly recorded transcripts of many of his public speeches, some of which are published here.

The introduction by Michael Ratner, President of the New York Center for Constitutional Rights and attorney for the Camp X-Ray prisoners from Afghanistan, points out Kunstler's words are even more prescient today than in his time.
