Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An excellent collection of new perspectives for understanding and undertaking measures to apply the lessons from that terrible tragedy.”—John F. Lehman, Chairman, J.F. Lehman & Company, Member, National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (9-11 Commission)

“The legal landscape of the post-9/11 world, both in U.S. domestic law and international law, is a work in progress, and in many ways a moving target. The challenge in upholding fundamental values of liberty and the rule of law in the face of determined terrorists is certainly daunting. This volume brings these issues to life, and illuminates the importance of the stakes involved. This thoughtful set of essays can only serve to help us better address these daunting challenges more effectively.”—Stuart Gottlieb, Director of Policy Studies, Yale University MacMillan Center, and Editor of Debating Terrorism & Counterterrorism
