More About This Textbook


Please Visit the Companion website:

Counterterrorism Law is a detailed survey of United States law governing the definition, detection, detention, interrogation, and prosecution of terrorists. Also covered is the availability and legal use of armed force, civil liability, and economic sanctions against terrorism and its state sponsors. A solid fit for an advanced course in National Security Law, Constitutional Law, or Civil Rights, this comprehensive text organizes the rapidly growing body of Counterterrorism Law into discrete, coherent, and pedagogically efficient segments.

This outstanding text offers an abundance of great features. Specifically, it:

  • organizes Counterterrorism law into separate, coherent, and pedagogically efficient parts
  • adapts to multiple learning environments, including seminars and courses with limited class hours
  • covers not only core issues of detention, interrogation and law enforcement, but also related issues such as data-mining, screening, civil liability, targeted killing, and sanctions
