In the 1920s and 30s, liberty came under attack from many forces inside and outside the United States.
Those who opposed free speech and free expression concentrated their attacks on one book and on one man.
The book was Ulysses and the man was its author, James Joyce.
The ferocity of the campaign reached fever pitch in the early 1930s when the book became the center of the most famous literary trial of the twentieth century.
Among the few to champion liberty at the time was a young boy from Texas.
His name was Set Wright. His story is told in Set at Random.
