The War on Terror : The Legal Dimension, Hardback Book

The War on Terror : The Legal Dimension Hardback



A former Marine judge advocate and legal counsel to General Colin Powell, James Terry explores the genesis of the United States approach to terror violence and the legal foundation for the nation's response to the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Terry first reviews the entire spectrum of legal issues that arise before offering creative and practical legal and political solutions to counter terrorist activities.

The author examines the development of rules of engagement and their application in the terrorist environment while differentiating the law of self-defense in this environment from more traditional conflicts.

He also addresses the role of interrogation, and the line between harsh interrogation and torture, and the jurisdictional claims that arise. This volume examines a large number of topics related to the struggle and in a remarkably concise exploration, makes them understandable to experts in international law as well as those who do not have a strong background in the field.

This text provides a serious but concise review of the legal issues in 20 interrelated chapters.

All constitutional law scholars and political scientists will greatly benefit from reading this book.

No other text offers such a comprehensive or detailed review of the issues arising from the War on Terror.
