?[O]ffers very valuable information and advice to democratic leaders fighting the threat of terrorism....recommended for academic and larger public libraries.?-Library Journal

"This book addresses a critically important question: How can governments find the right balance between protecting public safety and preserving civil liberties? Leaders of democracies often resort to emergency powers in the expectation that the changes will be temporary, but the powers are often abused, threatening human rights. Policy makers and the public need to understand these tradeoffs, and Michael Freeman's book is an excellent place to start."-Jessica E. Stern Lecturer in Public Policy, Harvard University

About the Author

MICHAEL FREEMAN is a scholar of terrorism, international relations, and U.S. foreign policy. He has spent several years as a political analyst for the U.S. Government and is currently an independent political risk consultant.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book 25 Aug. 2004
By TSB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Freedom or Security is an interesting book on the use of emergency powers.

You do not have to be a political expert or a researcher to find the cases important to our everyday understanding of worldwide politics.

It's well researched and documented.

If you have even a slight interest in history and terrorism this book has a lot to offer.
