Terrorism and tyranny : trampling freedom, justice, and peace to rid the world of evil by James Bovard( Book )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Terrorism and Tyranny, Bovard casts yet another jaundiced eye on Washington and the motives behind protecting "the homeland" and starting a controversial, unprovoked war with Iraq. Do you think that you're safer now that the Federal Government has a Homeland Security czar? Think that your civil liberties and privacy are still intact? Think again on both counts. For Bovard, the Bush administration's war on terror all comes down to a trampling of personal liberty that is more effective in winning elections than it is in protecting Americans. From airport security follies that protect no one to increased surveillance of individuals in their public and private lives to the dishonest, abusive roundup of detainees, the war on terrorism is taking a toll on individual liberty, and no one tells the whole story better than James Bovard."--Jacket
Lost rights : the destruction of American liberty by James Bovard( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Justice Department officials seizing people's homes based on mere rumors to the IRS and its master plan to prohibit the nation's self-employed from working for themselves to the perpetrators of the Waco siege, government officials are tearing the Bill of Rights to pieces. Today's citizen is now more likely than ever to violate some unknown law or regulation and be placed at the mercy of an administrator or politician hungering for publicity. Unfortunately, the only way many government agencies can measure their "public service" is by the number of citizens they harass, hinder, restrain, or jail. James Bovard's Lost Rights provides a highly entertaining analysis of the bloated excess of government and the plight of contemporary Americans beaten into submission by a horrible parody of the Founding Fathers' dream
The fair trade fraud by James Bovard( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How Congress pillages the consumer and decimates American competitiveness"--Jacket subtitle
Freedom in chains : the rise of the state and the demise of the citizen by James Bovard( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Bovard shows how the State has become a behemoth that threatens to destroy the individual. Reading through the history of the State and its war on the citizen, Bovard looks at thinkers as diverse as John Locke, Etienne de la Boetie, James Madison, and G.W.F. Hegel. He explores the original idea of the State; the corruption of the concept of freedom; how the rising number of government dependents is subverting democracy; and the ultimate fraud that is perpetrated as the State's benevolence
"Feeling your pain" : the explosion and abuse of government power in the Clinton-Gore years by James Bovard( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Bovard is no fan of Big Government in the US and under the Clinton-Gore administration. In his new book, Bovard looks at Clinton and Gore's record on such abuses and absurdities as taxes, gun control, the Waco fiasco, AmeriCorps, and federal funding of every program from those dealing with disaster relief to those that put on puppet shows in Northern California. He looks at Hillary Clinton's informal role in the government, as well as Newt Gingrich's poor stewardship of the Republican party in its quest for a leaner federal government. In the style that made Lost Rights a classic, Bovard takes us on a sentimental journey through the last eight years. It's a trip no one will want to miss
The Bush betrayal by James Bovard( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and Arabic and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bipartisan scourge" Bovard launches a blistering attack on the Bush administration that will add new fuel to the fires of Bush opponents while giving presidential supporters much to think about. In a series of cogently argued allegations, Bovard shows how the campaign promises of 2000 have betrayed not only the electorate, but the Constitution itself: from the erosion of civil liberties, massive debt, and the arrogance of federal agencies, to economic policies that favor the wealthy, and the deceptive maneuvers that led to war in Iraq and the alienation of former allies.--From publisher description
Attention deficit democracy by James Bovard( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Bovard diagnoses a national malady, "Attention Deficit Democracy," characterized by a citizenry indifferent to facts and increasingly incapable of judging when their rights and liberties are being destroyed. Bovard exposes the frightening national and global reality of presidential absolute power and argues that our myopia has serious consequences for America's future."--Jacket
