Abstract
 
Description
Traces the history leading up to the Anti-terrorism Act of 1996 "one of the worst assults on civil liberties in decades." The authors review of the abuses occuring today-denials od due process, detentions of aliens based on secret evidence, investigations of support for lawful humanitarian activity - culminates with recommendations for a counterterrorism strategy that would conform to the Constitution - one focused on individual culpability for acts of violence rather than on political ideology. Written for the general audience, yet laden with endnotes of value to activists and lawyers, Terrorism & The Constitution is a balanced examination of the problem of terrorism from a civil liberties perspective. - from Amzon
