This book offers a poignant illustration of the erosion of civil rights and liberties in the "war on terrorism. It questions whether we can respond effectively to the threat of terrorism without jeopardizing the very freedoms that characterize a democratic society.

I will mention one truth teller and not many people know about her . . . Jesselyn Radack. Jesselyn was the person on duty when John Walker Lindh was taken in. With all this talk about torture you should know that the first person tortured was an American citizen and he was tortured mercilessly for the first few days of his internment and denied medical care. She raised holy Hell. She was tossed out of the justice Department and blacklisted. That's the kind of guts Jesselyn had. Jesselyn had tremendous guts and now she's written a really terrific book.
