The State vs. The People
The Rise of the American Police State

by Claire Wolfe and Aaron Zelman

With an Introduction by James Bovard

Is America becoming a police state? Friends of liberty need to know.

Some say the U.S. is already a police state. Others watch the news for signs that their country is about to cross an indefinable line. Since September 11, 2001, the question has become more urgent. When do roving wiretaps, random checkpoints, mysterious "detentions," and military tribunals cross over from being emergency measures to being the tools of a government permanently and irrevocably out of control?

The State vs. the People examines these crucial issues. But first, it answers this fundamental question: "What is a police state?"

Though few realize it, "police state" and "tyranny" are not synonyms. A police state is a specific mode of government with unmistakable features and attitudes. Conceived in Prussia amid war, power struggles, mercantilism, and Enlightenment ideals, police states have at times been oppressive but orderly and at times have served as the machinery of monsters.

In this new book Wolfe and Zelman reveal:

Chapter by chapter, Wolfe and Zelman draw parallels between conditions in today's America and the police states of the past.You'll learn:

Finally, you'll learn how you can help turn America from its dangerous course.

Each chapter is followed by a point-by-point summary you can use as a handout, as part of a slide-show presentation, or as notes for a debate or essay.

This is a book to share with fellow patriots who already understand. This is a book to share with your doubting friends, relatives, and neighbors -- who need to understand. This is a book to keep on your own shelves for intellectual ammo.

This is a book that can help save America -- if anything can.

Powerful voices endorse The State vs the People:

Awarded "Freedom Book of the Month" for February, 2002 by FreeMarket.Net

Any book this chilling should be fiction. Instead of penning a novel, though, Wolfe and Zelman compiled compelling evidence that the "free world" increasingly maintains only the facade of liberty, cloaking an iron- reality.

Is America lurching towards a police state? How would you know? The State vs. the People unblinkingly answers these questions with logic, facts and clarity. No other book has so courageously delivered the fearsome news that we must hear. Compellingly written with a flair for irony and drama, this fully-documented book aims to vigorously rouse America from its statist stupor. Every thinking person needs to read this book and confront its message -- our civilization quite literally depends upon it.
Richard W. Stevens
Lawyer and author of Dial 911 and Die

Wolfe and Zelman strip bare the complacent assumption that police states can be attributed to the "single twisted mind" of a Hitler, a Stalin, or a Janet Reno -- instead tracing the roots of tyranny to such components of our everyday modern life as the notions of "normalcy" ground into children by the structure of our government schools ... and the natural desire of most human beings to "fit in." A heartfelt plea to "live resistance," this book urges us to "commit our lives to making sure we never, through choice or inertia, help lay the bricks that build the police state." Amen.
Vin Supryonwicz
Syndicated columnist "The Libertarian"

Briskly written in clear everyday language, yet impeccably documented, The State vs. the People is a must read for all who have felt even a tinge of uneasiness at the goal of police "safety checkpoints," a frisson of distrust of politicians exhortations "to do it for the good of the children," or a smidgen of disbelief at the introduction of a new government sponsered "war" on some undesirable behavior...
