Description
The war on terrorism is the first political growth industry of the new Millennium. So begins James Bovard's provocative and unrelenting examination of the Bush administration and its motives for prosecuting a war on Iraq. Bovard is one of Washington's most controversial journalists, known for the searchlight he has shone on the trampling of civil liberties and privacy by successive US administrations. In this book he tells a story of the toll that the war on terrorism is taking, from airport security follies that protect no one, to increased surveillance of individuals and greater numbers of detainees. In so doing, he reveals some insights into the US's coping mechanisms when under threat. His uncompromising and impassioned stance against a state that tramples personal freedoms and ignores the wishes of its citizens should strike a chord with many.
