Synopsis: "Shackled Dreams" is a must-read for anyone interested in the status of civil rights in post-Sept. 11 America and the plight of pro-Palestinian activists. It describes the life and work of Dr. Sami Al-Arian, a former University of South Florida professor targeted by John Ashcroft's Justice Department as a result of his extraordinary efforts to raise awareness about human rights violations against Palestinians. The final section of the book contains illuminating interviews, speeches and articles by Al-Arian, who has been detained in Florida since Feb. 2003, where he is awaiting trial. More than anything, "Shackled Dreams" sets straight misconceptions about Al-Arian's case, tireless work and his beliefs. "The case of Dr. Sami Al-Arian will be seen by history as a defense of the best aspects of the U.S. Constitution that Sami has embraced, and in which he continues to have faith." --C. Peter Erlinder, William Mitchell College of Law. "In learning to fight McCarthyism through Jeffersonian liberalism, [Sami] became absolutely convinced that the American Muslim must find ways to replace the culture of bullet with the culture of ballot." --Agha K. Saeed, American Muslim Alliance. "Were it not for the suffering of... Sami Al-Arian, we Americans might still proudly proclaim that our judicial system deems the accused innocent until proven guilty." --Charles E. Butterworth, University of Maryland.
