About the Book
TERRORISM AND TYRANNY:
"The war on terrorism is the first political growth industry of the new Millennium." So begins Jim Bovard's newest and, in some ways, most provocative book as he casts yet another jaundiced eye on Washington and the motives behind protecting "the homeland" and prosecuting a wildly unpopular war with Iraq. For James Bovard, as always, it all comes down to a trampling of personal liberty and an end to privacy as we know it. From airport security follies that protect no one to increased surveillance of individuals and skyrocketing numbers of detainees, the war on terrorism is taking a toll on individual liberty and no one tells the whole grisly story better than Bovard.
"[Bovard] has synthesized and organized a vast amount of information, yet he presents it in an acessible, reader-friendly way.... A timely, troubling book, exhaustively and impeccably researched and documented.... an important, indeed essential, guide to the complex issues with which we must now grapple." -- Martin Sieff, The Washington Times
"No one is spared in Bovard's merciless review of our spectacularly unsuccessful war on terrorism."--Justin Raimondo, The American Conservative
"Invaluable....the best one-stop source I've seen for what various officials actually said at various times, suffused with intelligent
"...a concise and accurate chronicle of what happened and what could happen to our freedom as a result of excessive federal government power."-Jim Grichar, LewRockwell.com
"If you want to know what is really going on in President Bush's War on Terror, read Terrorism and Tyranny."--Charley Reese online
"Meticulously documented from contemporary news accounts, this rant against Bush's 'aura of righteousness' may well leave readers as angry as its author."--Publishers Weekly
"Bovard's take is ... a far more detailed and wide-ranging assault on the Patriot Act and the Bush administration, dense with example after example of governmental oppression, folly, and ineptitude in the wake of 9/11.

About the Book
The Bush Betrayal
His hard-hitting critiques of Democrat and Republican administrations in The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Newsweek, and other national publications have made him a "bipartisan scourge." Now, James Bovard launches a blistering attack on the Bush administration that will add new fuel to the fires of Bush opponents while giving presidential supporters much to think about. In a series of cogently argued allegations, Bovard shows how the campaign promises of 2000 have betrayed not only the electorate, but the Constitution itself: from the erosion of civil liberties, massive debt, and the arrogance of federal agencies, to economic policies that favor the wealthy, and the deceptive maneuvers that led to war in Iraq and the alienation of former allies. For every American, The Bush Betrayal will be required reading in this election year.
