Everyone who cares about democracy after 9/11 should read this book. -- Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights

Genuinely inspiring, Less Safe, Less Free brilliantly combines critique with proposal and should be required reading for any serious citizen. -- Dr. Richard Falk, Albert G. Milbank Professor of International Law and Practice emeritus, Princeton University

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Had to buy this book for a class I took in college several years ago. It was much cheaper than buying it at the college book store and it turned out to be a really good book.
