Additional Information

The threat of terrorism places U.S. national security police at the crossroads of security and liberty. This book focuses on the legal issues surrounding the war on terror. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants an honest review of the law and an accessible understanding of how law relates to U.S. national security. This is also a book about national security government and why it is dependent on good process and the moral integrity of those who wield its power. This is at heart a book about the process and practice of government and what we should mean when we refer to "good government."

Professor and Judge Baker is one of the finest national security law scholars of our time, and in this volume he has produced the clearest, most coherent, and most legible of the current challenges we face. If you have any questions about this area of the law, are engaged in a class at a law school in this field, or are in general interested in this topic, this book would be an outstanding addition to your library.
This book is one of the best works on national security law for the national security practitioner, lawyer and policy maker. Judge Baker does an admirable job providing an overview of a broad and challenging area of the law, to include the role of a national security lawyer in government. I have used sections of this book in various graduate courses that I teach. I have found that the footnotes contain a wealth of information, to include more resources and references. This isn't a book to be read overnight, but rather a book that should be studied and used as a reference work.
I wish it had actual page numbers. It makes it hard to follow just on "location" numbers.
