New York Times Sunday Book Review: Civil Liberties and the War on Terrorism
By ETHAN BRONNER, 2/22/2004
This is a nice discussion of the plethora of books coming out after 9/11 on civil liberties. Some of these books are nearly hysterical in their indictments of goverment actions. Others are somewhat more balanced. It's good to see this overview. I think it's important to realize that more freedom/less safety <-> less freedom/more safety is a continuum. There are real tradeoffs here.
