A powerful and systematic analysis...Cole and Lobel offer a positive strategy for making the nation safer from terrorist attacks. -- Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean of the Woodrow Wilson Schools

A resounding argument contra administration policy. -- Kirkus Reviews

A timely and unsparing exposure of the disastrous consequences of the 'war on terror' demagogy of the Bush administration. -- Zbigniew Brzezinski, National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter

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

This compelling, necessary volume demolishes the doctrine of preemptive self-defense as a dangerous oxymoron. -- Harold Hongju Koh, Dean of Yale Law School and former Assistant U.S. Secretary of State for Human Rights


Highly recommended...clear, incisive, and informative. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
