As a long time admirer of her work while director of Liberty and beyond, I was curious to see what a mixture of an autobiography and political polemic would bring to discussions about human rights.
Although only written around 2016, the UK she describes feels some distance away from us, and not just because of an unfortunate choice of sandwich filler in Wuhan in 2019. The current Nationality bill under scrutiny looking at the almost arbitrary right of the government to revoke citizenship feels far closer to being passed than it does when she describes it.
She argues eloquently for defending human rights but at times her flitting between different supporting arguements loses some of her focus on the main thesis.
Well worth a read.
