In Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the follow-up to his award-winning book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead paints a terrifying portrait of a nation at war with itself and which is on the verge of undermining the basic freedoms guaranteed to the citizenry in the Constitution. Indeed, police have been transformed into extensions of the military, towns and cities have become battlefields, and the American people have been turned into enemy combatants, to be spied on, tracked, scanned, frisked, searched, subjected to all manner of intrusions, intimidated, invaded, raided, manhandled, censored, silenced, shot at, locked up, and denied due process.

Yet this police state did not come about overnight. As Whitehead notes, this shift into totalitarianism cannot be traced back to a single individual or event. Rather, the evolution has been so subtle that most American citizens were hardly even aware of it taking place. Yet little by little, police authority expanded, one weapon after another was added to the police arsenal, and one exception after another was made to the standards that have historically restrained police authority. Add to this mix the merger of Internet megacorporations with government intelligence agencies, and you have the making of an electronic concentration camp that not only sees the citizenry as databits but will attempt to control every aspect of their lives. And if someone dares to step out of line, they will most likely find an armed SWAT team at their door.

    Andrew P. Napolitano, Fox News analyst and New York Times bestselling author

  • “This potent follow-up to A Government of Wolves, Whitehead…presents the US government as…[using] fear and paranoia to reduce civil liberties in a calculated post-9/11 scam of terrorism and national security…Whitehead scores points when addressing needed reforms in the court system, education, and individual rights to privacy…Detailed and provocative…[a] call to take the US back before civil liberties vanish.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Attorney Whitehead…offers here commentary on various ways in which the government is encroaching upon our rights. Describing everything from police no-knock raids to the enormous data-gathering machine revealed by Edward Snowden, Whitehead makes many valid points (as does the foreword by Ron Paul) that are backed up by examples and extensive notes…Most citizens will find something here to agree with and that will spur them to further vigilance about their civil liberties.”

    Library Journal

  • “Once again, John W. Whitehead shows himself to be a thorough reporter, an insightful scholar and a tireless defender of the Constitution. Battlefield America is the most penetrating, eye-opening proof to date of the imperialist government’s desecration of our constitutional personal liberties.”

    Nat Hentoff, syndicated columnist and historian
