    schema:reviewBody ""In Terrorism and Tyranny, Bovard casts yet another jaundiced eye on Washington and the motives behind protecting "the homeland" and starting a controversial, unprovoked war with Iraq. Do you think that you're safer now that the Federal Government has a Homeland Security czar? Think that your civil liberties and privacy are still intact? Think again on both counts. For Bovard, the Bush administration's war on terror all comes down to a trampling of personal liberty that is more effective in winning elections than it is in protecting Americans. From airport security follies that protect no one to increased surveillance of individuals in their public and private lives to the dishonest, abusive roundup of detainees, the war on terrorism is taking a toll on individual liberty, and no one tells the whole story better than James Bovard."--Jacket." ;
