In light of the ongoing war against terrorism, can the United States maintain its dedication to protecting civil liberties without compromising security? At stake is nothing less than the survival of ideas associated with the modern period of political philosophy: the freedom of conscience, the inviolable rights of the individual to privacy, the constitutionally limited state, as well as the more recent refinement of late modern liberalism, multiculturalism. Contributors evaluate the need to reassess the nation's public policies, institutions, as well as its very identity. The struggle to persist as an open society in the age of terrorism will be the defining test of democracy in the Twenty-first-century.

'This volume provides a wide-ranging, critical, and provocative survey of the challenges the US government and society face in the wake of September 11, 2001 and our initial responses. A grasp of the issues raised by these authors is of critical importance for any informed citizen.' - Charles E. Wacott, Professor of Political Science, Virginia Tech

'This [collection] is an important contribution to our understanding of the balance between civil liberties crucial to our democracy and the demands of national security in an era of increased terrorist threats.' James P. Pfiffner, George Mason University
