Description:

An essential work on the challenges of preserving civil liberties in wartime by a preeminent scholar of constitutional law. Winner of eight national awards for his magisterial work "Perilous Times," Geoffrey R. Stone has now created a condensed, updated, and more accessible history of civil liberties in wartime. With an in-depth examination of how our constitutional rights have fared during the presidency of George W. Bush, Stone reveals how the federal government has suppressed civil liberties in times of war throughout American history. A sparkling historical narrative, "War and Liberty" is the perfect book for any reader who wants to understand the current national debate and assess the state of our freedoms.
