Editorial Reviews


The very fact that books like this can still be written and published shows that we have not lost all our freedoms. John Whitehead’s work should motivate us all to redouble our efforts to reclaim our freedoms.―from the foreword by Ron Paul, twelve-term U.S. congressman and former presidential candidate

(Ron Paul)

Constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead makes a compelling and urgent case in Battlefield America for Americans to unite under one common goal: the defense of our freedoms.―Nadine Strossen, former president of the ACLU and constitutional law professor at New York Law School

(Nadine Strossen)

Once again, John W. Whitehead shows himself to be a thorough reporter, an insightful scholar and a tireless defender of the Constitution. Battlefield America is the most penetrating, eye-opening proof to date of the imperialist government’s desecration of our constitutional personal liberties.―Nat Hentoff, syndicated columnist and historian

(Nat Hentoff)

In his compelling book Battlefield America, John W. Whitehead describes the danger posed to liberty and humanity itself by the control impulse of government and technology.―Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary, US Treasury, and former Wall Street Journal columnist and editor

(Paul Craig Roberts)

John Whitehead is freedom's defense lawyer. He'll never give up, and neither must we.―Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., author and chairman of Mises Institute

(Llewellyn H. Rockwell)

"I challenge anyone to read this book and then try to sleep. I found that impossible."

Hon. Andrew P. Napolitano, Senior Judicial Analyst, Fox News Channel, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law, Brooklyn Law School

(Hon. Andrew P. Napolitano)

In this potent follow-up to A Government of Wolves (2013), Whitehead, a constitutional attorney and the president of the Rutherford Institute, continues to investigate what he sees as an increasingly aggressive, fascistic America that the founding fathers would find offensive. Whitehead's scathing tone―matched in the foreword from former congressman Ron Paul―can be heavy-handed and strident, but he presents the U.S. government as "a hyper-militarized, twitchy, easily offended, suspicious, locked down, paranoid, all-seeing bureaucracy" that uses fear and paranoia to reduce civil liberties in a calculated post-9/11 scam of terrorism and national security. He uses the responses of heavily armed police forces to recent incidents―including the Boston Marathon bombing and the protests in Ferguson, Mo.―as indicators of an occupying army... Whitehead scores points when addressing needed reforms in the court system, education, and individual rights to privacy. Following his literary forebears such as Orwell and Huxley, he warns: "Either we gather together now and attempt to restore freedom or all will be lost." Detailed and provocative...Whitehead's call to take the U.S. back before civil liberties vanish mostly rises above boilerplate rhetoric and hysteria. (Apr.)

(Publisher's Weekly)

About the Author

JOHN WHITEHEAD is an attorney and author who has written, debated, and practiced widely in the area of constitutional law, human rights, and popular culture. 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 recognition, 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.” Whitehead’s concern for the persecuted and oppressed led him, in 1982, to establish The Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit civil liberties and human rights organization headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia. Deeply committed to protecting the constitutional freedoms of every American and the integral human rights of all people, The Rutherford Institute has emerged as a prominent leader in the national dialogue on civil liberties and human rights and a formidable champion of the Constitution.
