9780061142574: In Defense of Our America: The Fight for Civil Liberties in the Age of Terror

Executive Director of the ACLU Anthony D. Romero and award-winning journalist Dina Temple-Raston present stories of real Americans at the front lines of the fight for civil liberties at a time when our most basic rights are being challenged. From the story of "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh to the battle against the National Security Agency's warrantless spying program, and from a movement in Pennsylvania to force religion into the public school science curriculum to the case of Matthew Limon, a gay teenager sentenced to seventeen years in prison for having consensual oral sex with another teenage boy in Kansas, In Defense of Our America offers readers an eye-opening look at the dangerous erosion of rights in the post-9/11 age of terror and chronicles the courageous ongoing struggle of ordinary Americans to preserve our hard-won constitutional freedoms.

About the Author:

Anthony D. Romero has been executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union since September 2001. He lives in New York City.



Dina Temple-Raston's previous books include A Death in Texas and Justice on the Grass. She lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

The authors take a bleak and worrisome look at the systematic effort underway to dismantle legal protections and subvert civil rights in the name of fighting the tyranny of Islamic extremists. Anthony D. Romero, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), paints a picture of how the George W. Bush White House seized on the terrorist attacks of 9/11 to begin an unprecedented assault on the Bill of Rights. Narrator Michael Prichard keeps the listener engaged in a complex and detailed treatise. His strong, dispassionate voice and consistent pace reinforce the sense that Romeros arguments are, at heart, legal in nature. His even-keeled delivery underscores the credibility of this substantive assessment of how America has succumbed to fear and tyranny from within.
