"The most complete analysis of the civil liberties aspect of the ongoing war on terrorism. . . . Sidel dispassionately examines the tension between the need to guard against another massive attack on U.S. soil and the need to maintain a free and open society. . . . [E]ven if you don't agree with him, the arguments are compelling and demand serious consideration."
"In his slender, fact-packed and worrying volume, Mark Sidel . . . takes a careful and searching look at the unprecedented terror attack of 2001 and its impact. . . . [T]he issue of security versus freedom will be fiercely debated for years, which only makes Sidel's More Secure, Less Free? essential reading."

"The normal tension between freedom and security is under particular strain since 9-11, and Mark Sidel documents the silent and steady erosion of privacy and the public's right to know. At the same time that government agencies and their private sector partners are quietly building databases to store information about the public, it is becoming harder and harder for the public to learn what government agencies themselves are up to even about those new databases. Mark Sidel shows how government for, by, and of the people can quietly become an indirect casualty in a war on terrorism, unless we are vigilant."
