    1 thought on “Patriot Acts: Narratives of Post-9/11 Injustice”

    1. This is a very important book that should be read by all. I also think this book would be an important text book for history classes in schools. The stories are tragic, and it saddened me to read about the illegality of what all of the men and women endured after 9/11. I was born and raised in New York City and had many Muslim friends that lived in my building and that attended high school and post graduate school (NYU) with me. The hate toward my friends post 9/11 sickened me. The ignorance and [...]

    2. An eye opening collection of oral histories from those affected by post-9/11 xenophobia and racism. An important and increasingly relevant book to read. This somewhat harrowing anthology effectively illuminates the injustices of the Patriot Act, and how the civil and human rights of many have been sacrificed in the name of "national security".

    3. Well documentedPersonal narratives of immigrants and practicing Muslims targeted in the worldwide War on Terror. This journalist uncovers questionable practices among agencies sworn to protect.

    4. Like any anthology, some stories are going to be more interesting than others, but overall this was great stuff and essential reading. One of the better books I've read on this subject, I just really wish that with all the books getting published on Arabs and/or Muslims in the US at least one of them would cover Debbie Almontaser's story.

    5. I picked this up at Wordstock, along with another Voices of Witness book. I caught on to this series last year when I taught a unit on Zeitoun. I am just reading a story here and there in this book. It is excellent.

    6. Incredible collection of oral histories from folks who have suffered human rights crises after 9/11. A must read!

    7. This book needs to be taught in schools. All Americans should read it. That's a bold statement, yes, but the book is a bold statement, or at least an eye-opener worthy of contemplation.

    8. Felt a lot of sympathy for these people. Makes me ever more distrustful of the police and NSA and government agencies in general.

    9. Will make you cry important book. Buy and share with others. let the power of telling stories do it's wonders.
