Reviews

"I was at a low moment, and beginning to fear that our adversarial culture was dying and the open society was losing its will to resist, when Ezra Levant showed that every citizen has the birthright of a little spark, and a grown-up duty to kindle that spark into a flame. Let the bureaucrats do their worst: the tongue and the word are chainless and nothing is sacred except this freedom above all." -- Christopher Hitchens, author of God is Not Great "If we're not careful, if we force the Ezras in this country to shut up, our freedom of speech could be next." -- Rick Mercer, in a "rant" from the Rick Mercer Report "We are not yet three months into 2009, but Ezra may well have written the most important public affairs book this year." -- The National Post "I read Shakedown and I am awed at Levant's persistence and powers of endurance." -- Rex Murphy, in the Globe & Mail "Why is Ezra Levant the flavour of the month? Dare I say because he deserves to be?" -- Metro Vancouver ..".eloquent and powerful..." -- London Free Press ..".puts everything on the line in the way the best Canadian journalists always did." -- Ottawa Citizen "Let me put in a plug for Levant's new book, Shakedown, which lays out, in example after example, how government-appointed human rights bodies warped the noble mission for which they were created." -- The Halifax Chronicle Herald ..".By the end of Levant's book, readers will be left wondering whether it is enough to prune back the commissions, or, as he prefers, to weed them out altogether." -- Macleans From the Hardcover edition.
