Whistleblower Law

Whistleblower Law: A Guide to Legal Protections for Corporate Employees (Co-authors Michael D. Kohn & David Colapinto)

“Corporate whistleblowers are the unsung heroes on Wall Street. However, because these corporate employees are frequently subject to retaliation, it is essential that they have a thorough understanding of their rights. The new book Whistleblower Law: A Guide to Legal Protections for Corporate Employees provides a clear, comprehensive and easy-to-understand explanation of the employee-protection requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.”

American Political Prisoners: Prosecutions under the Espionage and Sedition Act

This book is the first account of the personal lives of the nearly 1,000 long-term political prisoners arrested under various sedition laws for their opposition to World War I, their trade union activities, or their unpopular political or religious beliefs. Based on the author’s exclusive access to the uncensored prison files of many of these prisoners, and information obtained under the federal Freedom of Information Act, Kohn relays the powerful prison experiences of some of America’s most famous and colorful labor, socialist, and peace leaders. With over ten years of research, and access to tens of thousands of pages of never-before released U.S. Department of Justice records, Stephen Kohn has been able to recreate the actual prison experiences of these political prisoners.

“An extraordinary feat of research, extracting from a reluctant government the records that are published for the first time in this book.”

Howard Zinn, Author, “A People’s History of the United States Former Professor Emeritus, Boston University”

Jailed for Peace: The History of American Draft Law Violators, 1658-1985

“While its copious notes and statistical apparatus attest to real scholarship in its composition, this sympathetic history of resistance to military conscription in the U.S. is no dry-as-dust academic tone. It is a concise, humane chronicle of the most familiar expression of a very old American ideal-pacifism.”
