Terrorism, the Laws of War, and the Constitution
by John Yoo
Publisher: Hoover Institution Press 2005
Number of pages: 196
This volume examines three enemy combatant cases that represent the leading edge of U.S. efforts to devise legal rules, consistent with American constitutional principles, for waging the global war on terror. The distinguished contributors analyze the crucial questions these cases raise about the balance between national security and civil liberties in wartime and call for a reexamination of the complex connections between the Constitution and international law.
