Patriot Acts: Narratives of Post-9/11 Injustice (Voice of Witness) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book seeks to tell the life stories of the innocent men and women who have been needlessly swept up in the “war on terror.” As we approach the ten-year anniversary of 9/11, this collection of narratives gives voice to the people who have had their human rights violated here in the U.S. by post-9/11 policies and actions. Among the narrators:

Young men of Arab, Muslim, South Asian, and Middle Eastern descent, who were arrested and detained or singled out for voluntary interviews because of their national origin or religion.

Scholars who have been blacklisted or subjected to interrogation for their research or writings on Islam and related topics.

Muslim women who have suffered from job discrimination, harassment, and assault for wearing a veil or similar head covering.
