"Protecting What Matters gives readers an expert view of the tensions among security, liberty, and security in this post 9/11 world. Alternatively commending, condemning, and suggesting alternatives to current U.S. anti-terrorism policies and technology, the authors lay out the intricacies of the relationship among IT, freedom, security, ethics, and the law, in the context of fighting a new and unfamiliar enemy." Natalie Kochmar, Privacy and American Business

The high points of this consistently engaging book are the closing chapters written by Senators John Kyle (R-AZ) and Russ Feingold (D-WI) assessing the constitutionality and effectiveness of the PATRIOT Act. Senator Kyle offers an intelligent and impassioned defense of government actions to defend the American people in a time of unprecedented danger. Senator Feingold, in an equally thoughtful piece, presents his strong objections to the PATRIOT Act, while simultaneously emphasizing the need to provide robust security for our country. In sum, Northouse has assembled an intelligent and energetic army of scholars, lawyers, policy makers, and government officials to do battle over one of the most pressing concerns in the post 9-11 world. In sum, Northouse's work raises the level of debate in our country while simultaneously demonstrating the need for further dialogue, sharper analysis, and more effective legislation in addressing a central issue of our time.
