Living Under The Patriot Act: Educating A Society details the monumental struggle to bring the most powerful law in the war on terror since September 11, 2001 to fruition. The combatants included Republicans and Democrats from the 108th Congress and the "Coalition of Opposition" which emerged during the 109th Congress. The highly controversial Coalition’s efforts threatened the renewal of the Patriot Act far beyond what the general public has been told. Living Under The Patriot Act: Educating A Society also includes the platforms and perceptions of individuals, as well as special interest groups, on many sides of the Patriot Act argument. These special interest groups range from groups as diverse as the ACLU to the Gun Owners of America.
This book will appeal to all readers who are concerned about terrorism and the future of America. With this in mind, Living Under The Patriot Act: Educating A Society was written for the average everyday American, as well as the academic. In fact, due to ambiguous nature of the Patriot Act’s construction, coupled with the growing threat of terrorism, the need for a comprehensive book on this law has never been greater. Regardless of where you stand on the Patriot Act debate, readers of this book will benefit from a superior knowledge which will strengthen any discussion on this unique law.
