Product Details


“In measured, lucid detail, Barbara Olshansky presents a wide-ranging account of the Bush administration’s malfeasance.This important book portrays an administration dedicated to turning the U.S. into a feared and despised ‘outlaw state,’ substantially increasing threats to Americans and the world, and dismantling the rights that were partially instituted by the Constitution and have been deepened and enriched through dedicated struggle ever since. The grim record exposed in Democracy Detained should shame people who care for their country and its future, and encourage them to use the legacy of freedom they enjoy to put an end to these disgraceful crimes.” –Noam Chomsky

“Be afraid, be deeply afraid: government secrecy, prisoners held without counsels, charges or trials; torture—both legalized and outsourced, unabashed racial profiling, disappearances, indefinite detentions, wire taps, government surveillance. This is the stuff of despotic regimes. Welcome to George W. Bush’s America. In this meticulously-cited work, Barbara Olshansky does a brilliant and relentless job unraveling how the Bush administration is violating the U.S. Constitution, international human rights, and the civic integrity of this country. Everyone must read this book now, then get out there and get angry and fight with your life to save our freedom and democracy.” –Eve Ensler
