The Impact of 9/11 and the New Legal Landscape


I found this the other day browsing around but unfortunately I cannot open or download the file. I am hoping someone out there has an account with this group Palgrave Connect. All the chapter contents seem to be very interesting. I somehow get the feeling the issue will say basically that the means will justify the end. See comments below.

  1. My book chapter does not justify any means for any end. It is quite critical of post 9/11 efforts to dictate academic thought and action. It assesses how professors in the name of national security and patriotism have been fired, suspended, denied tenure and subject to vilification for daring to be human and opposing war and U.S. imperialism. You might want to buy the book and see for yourself the range of thought from neo-conservative to socialist.

    Peter,
    Thank you for the insight!

    I would love to read this book and see more, as I said the chapters look really interesting.

    I will adjust my intro to the post. I will also buy the book.

    Thanks again,
    Brian Romanoff
