Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Book Description In this compelling book, distinguished activist lawyer Francis Boyle sounds an impassioned clarion call to citizen action against Bush administration policies both domestically and overseas. Boyle, who has spent his career defending civil resisters, offers the only guide available on how to use international law, constitutional law, and the laws of war to defend peaceful non-violent protestors against governmental policies that are illegal and criminal. He focuses especially on the aftermath of 9/11 and the implications of the war on Afghanistan, the war on terrorism, the war on Iraq, the doctrine of preventive warfare, and the domestic abridgement of civil rights. Including a number of compelling excerpts from his own trial appearances as an expert witness and as counsel, the author offers a how-to manual for protesters who find themselves in court.

Book News Annotation:

A vocal antiwar activist for over a quarter century now, Boyle (law, U. of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign) sets out legal foundations for protesting war generally in the US. He also identifies specific violations of US and international law committed by presidents Poppy Bush, Clinton, and Baby Bush as they ordered the slaughter of little brown people around the world.
