7. It's available for free download in pdf form.

so of course that is what I did.

Esp. since Amazon is selling it hardcover for over 50.00 bucks.
Only 68 pages...for 50.00 bucks......

If you google the title .....several options for pdf are shown......I just clicked on one and got the book in a nano-second.

3. i will add it to my Christmas list....thanks!

The title of this book is a play upon several important concepts in the ongoing debate about American empire. Since September 11, 2001, the Bush administration and the U.S. Department of Justice have been violating the spirit and the law of the American Constitution at home and abroad. The U.S. Constitution has been doing work in the 'nonsovereign' spaces of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Abu Ghraib, Baghdad, and CIA black detention sites around the world. The reach of this constitution is becoming visible in National Security Agency surveillance and data-mining of electronic communications between the United States and the rest of the world. In testing the limits of its wished-for powers, the Bush administration seeks to constitute an imperium that, by its own definition, would not be subject to the checks of Congress, the courts, or international law. It operates outside of the boundaries of American sovereignty in defiance of the international community and the United Nations, and in violation of the law of nations.
