Abstract:

"Democracy Detained exposes the deplorable secret crimes committed by the Bush administration in its war on terror. Prominent legal activist Barbara Olshansky documents the assault on our constitutional democracy since 9/11, meticulously analyzing the unlawful justifications made by the U.S. government for covert actions at home and abroad. She reports on current shocking practices, from the outsourcing of torture through extraordinary rendition, to first-person testimony from innocent men imprisoned without charge at Guantanamo Bay, to revelations of a surveillance network tapped into the homes of average citizens. Democracy Detained is an essential resource for Americans concerned about their civil rights."--Jacket.
