"Professor Roach is one of the world's leading writers and thinkers on using the law to prevent and respond to terrorism. In this book he not only dissects the many thousands of pages of new law enacted after September 11, but manages to speak with authority and insight about the responses of nations around the world. This is a much-needed book because the big questions about anti-terror law cannot be answered within the boundaries of any one nation. They call for just the sort of analysis that Professor Roach undertakes in this important work."

"Unexpected and enlightening ... The unique legal gymnastics performed by the United States to justify its wars in the Middle East and the changes to its intelligence and interrogation policy have tended to concentrate analysts's attention. Kent Roach's new book, however, takes us well beyond these confines. ... The book should also bid fair to become a leading text on this newly important area of the law." - Tracy Lightcap
Law and Politics Book Review
"The scope and ambition of this book is daunting - its scale is magisterial, its attention to detail and the depth of its analysis are truly impressive … It is very much to be hoped that there will be future editions, partly because it is in the nature of the very fast moving field of counter-terrorism that some of its observations risk becoming out of date and, more importantly, because it seems quite improbable that anyone else could surpass Roach’s masterly achievement."
