American National Security and Civil Liberties in an Era of Terrorism - 04 edition

American National Security and Civil Liberties in an Era of Terrorism (ISBN10: 1403962006; ISBN13: 9781403962003)
ISBN13: 978-1403962003
ISBN10: 1403962006

Summary: In light of the ongoing war against terrorism, can the United States maintain its dedication to protecting civil liberties without compromising security? At stake is nothing less than whether the ideas associated with the modern period of political philosophy, the freedom of conscience, the inviolable rights of the individual to privacy, the constitutionally limited state, as well as the more recent refinement of late modern liberalism, multiculturalism, can survive.
Contributors evaluate the need to reassess the nation's public policies, institutions, as well as its very identity. The struggle to persist as an open society in the age of terrorism will be the defining test of democracy in the twenty-first century.
