9780230602885: Constitutional Peril: The Life and Death Struggle for Our Constitution and Democracy

A renowned attorney and political critic, Bruce Fein reveals the dangers faced by our Constitution and our nation courtesy of the Bush Administration and a Congress asleep at the switch. In blistering detail, he deconstructs the policies of Bush in the War on Terror--from the flouting of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to the crippling of the Great Writ of habeas corpus--and forecasts that the damage he's done is unlikely to be repaired by a kindhearted successor.
As we head toward the next national election, there are questions regarding matters more grave than education, healthcare, and even Iraq, questions that involve the very foundations of our government and the degrees to which they have been undermined, either actively or passively, by nearly everyone in power today. By exploring the constitutional crises of the past--Lincoln and habeas corpus through to Nixon and Watergate--Fein is able to begin to answer those questions and to discern a practical and rational way out of the current morass

About the Author:

Bruce Fein is a columnist for The Washington Times, an attorney, and a political critic. He was part of the American Bar Association's Task Force on Presidential Signing Statements and appears regularly on CNN, NPR, and the BBC.

Review:

“Bruce Fein is one of the most important legal minds of our time. Constitutional Peril is a must read for American lovers of liberty.” ―Congressman Ron Paul

“Bruce Fein has written a compelling and powerful book. He describes a litany of executive excesses, including warrantless surveillance, abuse of executive privilege, secrecy, extraordinary rendition, torture, improper detentions, and misuse of signing statements. As a top offficial in the Reagan Justice Department, Bruce is in a unique position to remind us of the importance of checks and balances in our constitutional form of government.” ―Representative John Conyers, Jr.

“Argues and richly documents that, primarily as the result of the last eight years, America's constitutional form of government is in imminent danger of extinction. Employing both his substantial constitutional expertise and his penchant for describing complex legal issues in clear and easy-to-understand terms, Fein details how the crux of our Constitutional guarantees have been gutted .” ―Glenn Greenwald
