Overview

For the broadest exploration of both constitutional and domestic law issues in national security, as well as thoughtful treatment of related international law topics, join your many colleagues who have made National Security Law the top-selling casebook in its field.

This thorough revision preserves the features that earned the book such widespread use:

  • a cohesive thematic framework for an examination of law and process for using American force abroad, intelligence gathering, counterterrorism, homeland security and related civil liberties concerns, and access to sensitive government information in a democracy
  • a rich, well-balanced selection of primary materials, including judicial opinions, executive orders, executive branch legal memoranda, statutes, and legislative history
  • descriptive text that provides context and informative historical and background information
  • current and comprehensive coverage of the very latest developments in the war on terrorism, torture, the Iraq War, the USA PATRIOT Act, and related issues
  • the expertise of a highly respected author team

    Changes for the Fourth Edition update content and simplify teaching:

  • full treatment of all important issues and developments in the aftermath of September 11, including the USA PATRIOT Act and its amendments, the Iraq War, detention without process, torture, extraordinary rendition, the Department of Homeland Security, border and transportation security, military commissions, intelligence reform legislation, and more
  • significant new cases, such as Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, Padilla v. Rumsfeld, U.S. v. Al-Arian, Detroit Free Press v.Ashcroft, U.S. v. Moussaoui, People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran v. Department of State, Rasul v. Bush, Doe v. Ashcroft, and Tenet v. Doe
  • the chapters of the book are reorganized to facilitate the treatment of intelligence gathering and detention, break larger chapters into smaller ones that allow professors greater ease in assignments, and reflect important developments since the previous edition
  • 37 thematically compact and teachable chapters
  • new case studies of controversial initiatives like the Terrorist Surveillance Program, extraordinary rendition, and the Valerie Plame case
