As the first edition of Terrorism Law suggests, terrorism, like crime, can never be completely eradicated. Over the past few years, as previous editions were released, the United States has faced many changes and challenges pertaining to the War on Terror, and continues to do so today. Although it was realized at the time the war started that legal and policy challenges would exist, no one could have predicted exactly what events would occur. Much has changed since September 11, 2001 in both the law and policy areas. The biggest challenges have become realistically fighting and winning the War on Terror under a democratically based rule of law, and protecting human rights and civil liberties in an ongoing wartime situation. It has been determined that the United States of America must accomplish three things: identify and appreciate the threat of militant Islamic global terrorism; do a better job of bringing the battle to the terrorists and the nations that harbor them; and promote and sustain a dedicated democracy building campaign in new governments such as those Afghanistan and Iraq.The fifth edition of Terrorism Law has been updated to include new developments in this war as well as some of our nation’s and the world’s biggest challenges while fighting it. You’ll find information on cyberterrorism, bioterrorism, effects of the War on Terror on civil liberties, understanding the necessity for the Law of War and the Rule of Law, a new paradigm for war and terrorism avoidance, the role of the military in promoting human rights, interrogation techniques and what defines torture, use of civil litigation in the War on Terror, a history of the War on Terror and why America must stay the course and abide by the Rule of Law when fighting this war. This new edition is designed to be used as a reference and text in this emerging area of law. It includes many appendices containing important American and international documents pertaining to the War on Terror as well as discussion questions, citations of legal cases pertaining to terrorism, and bibliographic information for further reference.
