This collection of 13 original essays offers an analysis of the Bush/Ashcroft programme to curtail civil liberties and constitutional rights in the name of security. Enacted in haste and, at times, in partial secrecy, the legislation and orders have not been carefully examined.;Respected lawyers and scholars subject the legislation, policy shifts and executive orders to serious critical scrutiny in essays which were written especially for this volume. Contributors include NPR commentator David Cole, political columnist Michael Tomasky and ACLU director Anthony Romero.
