As the preeminent post-9/11 television thriller, 24 has addressed critical issues relating to striking the proper balance between maintaining our civil liberties and ensuring our national security. The show continues to have a profound impact on the way in which we view the world. The Tao of Jack Bauer is an insightful study of Jack Bauer's influence in society. What does Jack Bauer teach us about torture? Does 24 glorify torture or does the series take a more nuanced approach to the issue? How can we maintain our civil liberties in the age of terrorism? How can we best fight terrorists while maintaining our core values? Is Jack Bauer a lawbreaker or a lawmaker? How do we analyze the countless moral and ethical dilemmas presented on 24? What is the "Jack Bauer effect"? How do government agents make use of technology to fight terrorism? The Tao of Jack Bauer tackles all of these issues and many more. The book also contains a fun quiz that measures how similar you are to Jack Bauer. So sit back, relax, and explore the world of 24 in a fresh, new light. As Jack Bauer would say: open the book "now, damn it!"
