The Second Edition of this book deals with many developments occasioned by the so-called "war on terror" of the last few years. It provides the bases for using the legal tools available for combating terrorism (prosecution, intelligence, and military action) while addressing the limits that ought to be applied to each of those within the framework of the rule of law. This edition necessarily deals with unauthorized surveillance, the torture controversy, targeted killings, and military detentions. To advance the rule of law while promoting security of the populace, the book addresses these areas:
The book concludes with opinions from the Supreme Court of Israel, the U.K. House of Lords, and the Supreme Court of Canada that focus explicitly on claims for emergency power to derogate civil liberties.
This book also is available in a three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
