Description
Written by one of the top trial lawyers alive today, this is Michael Tigar's look at how government through history has responded to terrorism, with an analysis of our own government's response to the attacks of 9/11, particularly in regard to our own civil liberties. When does safety at any cost undermine the very basis for our republic? This book is a must-read for anyone concerned with the state of our civil liberties today.
