Security and Liberty: Restriction by Stealth

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, Jan 15, 2009 - Political Science - 184 pages
"In considering the problems of legislating to reduce crime, this book highlights evidence of the veritable deluge of legislation which has reached the statute books over the last ten years and asks, what are the reasons for this? It provides an overview of some of the ways in which citizens are currently criminalized by legislation and gives specific examples of various other stealthy ways in which essential civil liberties have recently been restricted." --Book Jacket.
