"One of the greatest threats to privacy in the next five years."

A National ID Card:
A License to Live

No one has been more vigorous in the debate on a national ID card than the author of this book, Robert Ellis Smith. Long before the reaction to the terrorist attacks of 2001, he saw the dangers of requiring an identity document of each American citizen. In this special report, he marshals all the arguments for and against a mandatory national ID card.
