Involuntary Heroes: Hurricane Katrina's Impact on Civil Liberties

Mitch Crusto (1977, Law)

Involuntary Heroes: Hurricane Katrina's Impact on Civil Liberties (Carolina Academic Press, 2015)

Mitch Crusto's latest book is about the government's overreaction in post-hurricane Katrina New Orleans. It examines the experiences of the “involuntary heroes,” whose civil liberties were infringed upon by the government and who received little redress in the judicial system for their suffering.
