Liberty Under Attack
Reclaiming Our Freedoms in an Age of Terror - A Century Foundation Book
Liberty Under Attack by R.C. Leone
Book DescriptionProminent scholars, journalists, historians and activists detail what the Bush administration has done and is doing to undermine American civil liberties. "Liberty Under Attack" is the powerful and timely sequel to "War on Our Freedoms", a book which set out to address how the civil liberties of Americans were being undermined in the name of national security. When the first book was published back in 2003, there was a hope that the risk was temporary - a brief era of reaction to the terrible events of 9/11 - but five years after the attacks, the changes set in motion have broadened as the struggle against terrorism continues. In "Liberty Under Attack", experts and activists report on the diverse actions taken in the name of security, that serve to undermine American liberties, constitutional principles and America's moral standing in the world. Covering both the most well-publicized civil liberties challenges - for example the Patriot Act and Guantanamo - and more under-the-radar strategies for governmental prerogatives and diminishing individual protections, they explain why the consequences of these actions are ultimately destructive of American values and counterproductive in preventing future terrorism. As a disturbing pattern arises of undermining the judiciary, intimidating the press and invading personal privacy, government actions have fuelled hostility towards America in the world at large, and in Islamic communities in particular. The terrorists threaten our liberty, but they are not the only ones.
