With the 2008 edition of the Terrorism: International Case Law Reporter, Oxford introduces detailed headnotes to the series. Professor Michael Newton and his team have provided, for each case, a robust summary and a concise statement of the case's central issues and holding. Professor Newton has also added Israel and the Middle East as necessary new regional topics for a series that covers terrorism-related jurisprudence worldwide.
The 2008 edition includes cases highlighting issues such as:
* The contentious issue of what legal status "enemy combatants" possess in U.S. courts.
* The volatile issue of whether agents of a state may be held criminally liable for terrorism when carrying out official duties; exemplified by one of many prominent cases in this year's edition to come from non-U.S. courts, the Argentinean case Velasco, which appears in this edition is the only English translation available anywhere.
* The treatment of terrorist suspects and the wide-ranging comparison of how different jurisdictions balance security interests against the need to provide constitutional and treaty-based protections to criminal defendants.
* The financial aspects of terrorism and regional developments related to powerful terrorist groups.
Each annual edition serves a function of unique and growing importance as the one source that juxtaposes international decisions with those emanating from domestic forums. The comprehensive index also helps the reader to synthesize the commonality of issues.
