Description
Rothschild (editor, The Progressive) has composed a journalistic compendium of 82 stories demonstrating the severe erosion of civil and human rights in the post-9/11 United States. He reports on American citizens of Arab ethnicity being harassed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a student anti-torture protestor arrested on clearly bogus bomb hoax charges, a graphic designer fired from his job for heckling President Bush at a speech, university students in Texas investigated by US Army counterintelligence agents for organizing a conference on Islam and the law, an elementary school teacher reprimanded for saying "it was important for people to seek out peaceful solutions to problems before going to war," vigilante-style harassment of American Muslims, and many more similar stories. He also offers a brief overview of the legal and political "edifice of repression." Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
