"Dissent in Dangerous Times" presents essays by six distinguished
scholars, who provide their own unique views on the interplay of
loyalty, patriotism, and dissent.
While dissent has played a central role in our national history and
in the American cultural imagination, it is usually dangerous to
those who practice it, and always unpalatable to its targets. War
does not encourage the tolerance of opposition at home any more
than it does on the front: if the War on Terror is to be a
permanent war, then the consequences for American political
freedoms cannot be overestimated.
""Dissent in Dangerous Times" examines the nature of political
repression in liberal societies, and the political and legal
implications of living in an environment of fear. This profound,
incisive, at times even moving volume calls upon readers to think
about, and beyond, September 11, reminding us of both the fragility
and enduring power of freedom."
--Nadine Strossen, President, American Civil Liberties Union, and
Professor of Law, New York Law School.
