MEDIA REVIEWS

"Balancing Liberty and Security finds an important place in (the still few) works that have expressed concern about the silence of academics on the abuse of State power. This forthright evaluation of the risk society raises an articulate voice over externally or self-imposed silence of the academy on insidious deployment of State power ostensibly for public good. It is an accessible and welcome critical contribution to the discourse on civil rights and the monstrosity that is increasingly becoming the main face of State power even in the West with its claims on liberal democracy, rule of law and human rights. It is a must read for students and researchers of human rights, security studies and criminology and politics." - Hakeen O. Yusuf, The Howard Journal 53(3)
