Product Description

A major premise of this new book, Legal Responses to Terrorism, is that to control the phenomenon of terrorism, one must understand it to some degree. Therefore, the book begins with attempts to define terrorism, to impart an understanding of some of the motivations that lie behind it, and to catalog the agencies that are attempting to respond to it. With that foundation, Legal Responses to Terrorism then addresses the following areas using traditional case materials that interpret the language and application of the various statutes and conventions.

Development of the international law of war and international criminal law as they might apply in both prosecution and defense of alleged terrorists;
Investigation, apprehension, and prosecution of alleged terrorism incidents and extraterritorial enforcement of U.S. law;
The need of government for information with all that need implies: intelligence gathering, surveillance, controls on interrogation techniques, government secrecy, ethnic profiling, rights of privacy, and civil liberties issues such as those involved in the USA Patriot Act;
Prosecution of material support for terrorism and First Amendment implications for the right of association; and
Military and executive detentions without trial and the operation of military tribunals.

Legal Responses to Terrorism concludes with opinions from the Supreme Court of Israel and the U.K. House of Lords that focus explicitly on claims of need for emergency powers to derogate civil liberties.
