Muslims and Arab-Americans are increasingly under attack as a result of the US 'war on terror' - at home, as well as abroad.

Since the tragic events of September 11, Arab and Muslim Americans have faced a major assault on their civil liberties, with the Patriot Act on the frontline of this. Civil Rights in Peril seeks to expose the impact of these new governmental powers on Muslims and Arabs, as well as other groups and individuals targeted as part of the Bush administration's 'war on terror', and to show how ordinary people can resist these attacks on our fundamental rights.

This powerful anthology, edited by the well-known scholar and activist Elaine Hagopian, includes essays by Samih Farsoun, Naseer Aruri, Susan Akram, Nancy Murray, Robert Morlino and William Youmans.
