Law in the War on International Terrorism
Recent legal responses to international terrorism have been unprecedented and, in certain instances, controversial. Challenges for the legal community, especially scholars, are to explore alternatives and recommend measures within a legal framework to solve this multi-faceted problem.
Contributors to this important book have accepted and risen to this challenge. They describe and provide a comprehensive and insightful analysis of the pertinent domestic, bilateral, regional and international legal developments in the war against terrorism. Subjects covered include Terrorism, International Law and International Organizations; The U.N. in the War Against International Terrorism; Lawful and Unlawful Wars Against Terrorism; The Threat of Nuclear Terrorism; Detention of Terrorists As Unlawful Combatants and Their Trial by American Military Tribunals; and much more.
The authors include distinguished legal scholars and award winning jurists and practitioners, among them Peter Kovacs, Mary Ellen O'Connell, Larry D. Johnson, Robert Hardaway, Christopher Hardaway, James Siegesmund, Spencer J. Corona, Neal A. Richardson, Claude d'Estree, James A. R. Nafziger, Ronald R. Robinson, and Ved P. Nanda.
