It's a Free Country
Personal Freedom in America After September 11
It's a Free Country by Danny Goldberg
Book DescriptionSix weeks after 9/11, the USA Patriot Act was rushed through Congress. This 300-page bill gave sweeping new powers to the FBI, CIA, and Immigration and Naturalization Service, permitting them to wiretap telephone conversations, read E-mails, and arrest, detain, and deport suspicious individuals. It's a Free Country examines the frightening consequences of the Patriot Act. Voices from across the political spectrum are represented, from civil libertarians of the left-Ira Glasser, Howard Zinn, Tom Hayden, and Michael Moore-to conservative critics of overreaching government, including former U. S. Representative Bob Barr of Georgia and Republican activist Paul Weyrich. Also included are original works by Steve Earle, Ani DiFranco, and Matt Groening. As Cornel West writes in his foreword: "The best way to pay homage to those innocent fellow human beings who were viciously killed on September 11, 2001 ...is to insure that their loved ones-as well as ourselves-live in an American democracy forever vigilant in its quest for freedom, and forever vigorous in its efforts to secure our precious liberties alongside our safety. " A thoughtful and timely anthology, this edition has been completely updated.

Bumping into Geniuses, Paperback (August 2009)
Looks at the music industry, a business that was neither the romantic vehicle for self-expression that its most naive fans imagined, nor the purely crass money machine depicted by its most cynical critics. This book is suitable for those who are interested in the rock and roll industry, or the mores and temperaments of the musicians themselves.
How the Left Lost Teen Spirit, Paperback (January 2005)
Shows how today's professional public servants have managed to achieve nothing less than the indefensible, wholesale alienation of an entire generation.
