"The 'war on terror' re-declared by the Bush administration after 9/11 has provided the rhetorical framework for foreign and domestic policies grounded in quite different commitments. These carehul and informative inquiries provide much insight into some of the central issues of contemporary world affairs, at home and abroad."
--Noam Chomsky

"Elaine Hagopian, one of the country's most respected analysts of Middle East affairs, has brought together a group of astute commentators who give us a refreshingly critical view of the current demonizatoin of Muslims and Arabs. What she and the others make clear is the deadly connection between this phenomenon and U.S. behavior in the Middle East."
--Howard Zinn

"What an amazing book--it gives a cogent, intelligent, and political explanation of the relationship between the repression of Muslims and Arabs domestically and U.S. empire building abroad. It increased my understanding hundredfold. Buy it, read it, fight back!"
--Michael Ratner

"In the name of fighting terrorism, our government has targeted Muslims and Arabs using secret evidence, secret arrests, and detentions without dus process of law. These departures from our constitutional norms are sending shock waves through Arab and Muslim communities in the United States and abroad, and they are placing all Americans at risk."
--Nancy Chang

"Since September 11, U.S. media and popular culture have treated Arabs and Muslims as fanatics, terrorists, and suspects: this volume treats them as human beings. These are the forgotten victims of September 11, whose rights have been curtailed, activities monitored, and charities closed down or suppressed."
--As'ad AbuKhalil
