Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

About 5,000 foreign nationals have been detained by the United States since September 11 and denied basic constitutional rights in the name of "wartime" expediency. Cole, who has litigated civil liberties cases on behalf of resident aliens and writes for the Nation, argues that denying foreigners rights within our legal system usually ends with citizens being stripped of those same rights. Cole (No Equal Justice) documents how this process has already started and discusses provisions of the Patriot Act that he believes will allow for even further government encroachment on our freedom. He also provides detailed historical examples of the government's record of persecuting opposition voices in the name of security against a foreign menace. He argues for the moral and pragmatic importance of avoiding a double standard and according foreigners the same rights as citizens.

Review

A forceful antidote to the current round of xenophobic zeal....Lucid and reasoned. -- The Village Voice

David Cole is one of the country's greatest voices for civil liberties today. -- Anthony Lewis

Excoriates the USA PATRIOT Act and the Bush administration's post-9/11-anti-terrorism crusade as an unconstitutional attack on our cherished civil liberties. -- The Washington Post

If there is a flaw in Cole's logic, it escapes me. -- John W. Dean, Los Angeles Times Book Review

Remarkable and fascinating. -- The New York Review of Books

The book came in a timely manor, and the content within the book is a very interesting read. You will be very knowledgeable about how potential threats are taken care of by dealing with the people.
