More About the Author
Widely recognized as one of the nation's most vocal and involved civil liberties attorneys, Whitehead's approach to civil liberties issues has earned him numerous accolades and accomplishments, including the Hungarian Medal of Freedom and the 2010 Milner S. Ball Lifetime Achievement Award for "[his] decades of difficult and important work, as well as [his] impeccable integrity in defending civil liberties for all."
As nationally syndicated columnist Nat Hentoff observed about Whitehead: "John Whitehead is not only one of the nation's most consistent and persistent civil libertarians. He is also a remarkably perceptive illustrator of our popular culture, its insights and dangers. I often believe that John Whitehead is channeling the principles of James Madison, who would be very proud of him."
Born in 1946 in Tennessee, John W. Whitehead earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Arkansas in 1969 and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Arkansas School of Law in 1974. He served as an officer in the United States Army from 1969 to 1971. He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Whitehead explains this loss of freedoms and liberties as being the result of the ultimate national security state, turned police state. He asserts that the Founders of our Constitution perfected the document in order to make sure that government does not abuse the rights of its citizens, as such protections are needed to lessen the possibility of authoritarianism taking root in the United States.
I bought the book after having become familiar with The Rutherford Institute, of which the author is the founder. After reading The Freedom Wars, I understand, from a layperson's point of view, that "we the people" cannot refuse to take action in our communities against the rise of authoritarianism, and Whitehead's book lays out the actions that we can and should take to preserve our rights and freedoms.
I ordered the book from Amazon at a wonderful price, and it was shipped to me with a quick turnaround. I recommend this book to any citizen that is interested in actions to take when faced with the possibilities of authoritarianism in their communities.
