Detail from book cover.

Liberal democracy is in crisis around the world, besieged by authoritarianism, nationalism, and other illiberal forces. The defenders of democracy are strong too, as advocates across the political spectrum offer solutions based on fundamental democratic principles, such as freedom of speech, a free press, and the rule of law.

The volume of essays Fight for Liberty is a roadmap for the struggle against the rising tide of extremism and a cri de coeur in defense of the liberal world order, which sees itself threatened as never before.

Philip Bobbitt is the Herbert Wechsler Professor of Federal Jurisprudence and director for the Center for National Security at Columbia Law School. 

Garry Kasparov is the chairman of the Human Rights Foundation, a senior visiting fellow at the Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford, and a former world chess champion.

Bret Stephens is a contributing columnist at The New York Times and a senior political contributor for NBC News.
