In this updated and expanded edition of The Tyranny of Good Intentions , Paul Craig Roberts and Lawrence M. Stratton renew their valiant campaign to reclaim that which is rightly ours-liberty protected by the rule of law. They show how crusading legislators and unfair prosecutors are remaking American law into a weapon wielded by the government and how the erosion of the legal principles we hold dear-such as habeas corpus and the prohibition against self-incrimination-is destroying the presumption of innocence. A new introduction and new chapters cover recent marquee cases and make this provocative book essential reading for anyone who cringes at the thought of unbridled state power and sees our civil liberties slowly slipping away in the name of the War on Drugs, the War on Crime, and the War on Terror.
