Terrorism and Tyranny

Trampling Freedom, Justice, and Peace to Rid the World of Evil

James Bovard

Palgrave Macmillan Trade

"The war on terrorism is the first political growth industry of the new Millennium." So begins Jim Bovard's newest and, in some ways, most provocative book as he casts yet another jaundiced eye on Washington and the motives behind protecting "the homeland" and prosecuting a wildly unpopular war with Iraq. For James Bovard, as always, it all comes down to a trampling of personal liberty and an end to privacy as we know it. From airport security follies that protect no one to increased surveillance of individuals and skyrocketing numbers of detainees, the war on terrorism is taking a toll on individual liberty and no one tells the whole grisly story better than Bovard.

REVIEWS

Praise for Terrorism and Tyranny

"Bovard offers far more than an infuriating record of government misconduct. His is a libertarian critique of any government's -- including ours -- inherent tendency to aggarandize and abuse its power."
