Tyranny Comes Home: The Domestic Fate of U.S. Militarism (Paperback)
This book explains how repressive foreign policies can "boomerang" back home, reshaping domestic affairs. The authors illustrate this startling pattern through four developments in the United States: the rise of government surveillance, the militarization of police, the expanding use of drones, and torture in U.S. prisons.
