Description:
The concept of the "war on terror" has been used to account for broad criminal legislation, sweeping agency powers and potential human rights abuses throughout much of the world. This book engages critically with the metaphor of war in the context of terrorism. It brings together a group of experts who write about terrorism from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including international law and international relations, public and constitutional law, criminal law and criminology, legal theory, and psychology and law.
