Book News Annotation:

Richard Falk (emeritus, international law and policy, Princeton U.), who has characterized the current administration's war on terror as a "slide toward fascism," calls Cohen (Thomas Jefferson School of Law) a brave citizen in calling for resistance to American foreign policy. Waving the US Constitution and UN Charter in protest against Bush's cowboy bravado, she discusses the illegalities of the war in Iraq and the Patriot Act. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In "Cowboy Republic," Marjorie Cohn offers a penetrating analysis of the six most important ways in which the Bush administration has weakened the rule of law.

She concludes with practical ways to strengthen the rule of law domestically and internationally, including both political and legal remedies.
