Naval War College Review


Jane G. Dalton


In the midst of a cacophony of charges and countercharges concerning recently revealed warrantless U.S. government wiretaps of American citizens, this compact book strikes a refreshing note—calm, balanced consideration of the tension between security and liberty in the post-9/11 world. The editors, a Harvard Law School professor and an acting executive director for research at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Govern- ment, convened a group of experts in a variety of professional terrorism-related fields to explore “how American de- mocracy can thrive best” in the war on terror.
