Abstract 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.
