This article discusses the book "Civil Rights in Peril: The Targeting of Arabs and Muslims," by Elaine C. Hagopian. Muslims and Arab-Americans are increasingly under attack as a result of the US' war on terror'— at home as well as abroad. Since the tragic events of 11 September 2001, Arab and Muslim Americans have faced a major assault on their civil liberties. While targeting vulnerable groups and drawing on racist stereotypes about Arabs and Muslims, these measures threaten millions of people, including immigrants, activists, trade unionists, academics, writers, and anyone who the government wishes to define as a threat to national security.
