About the Book

The Third Edition of Counterterrorism Law not only updates the leading casebook in this field with recent developments, but also adds new chapters on bulk collection, the structure of habeas, and the procedural path to terrorism trials. This edition also includes new features that make these challenging materials easier to read and teach: introductory questions for principal cases, and a summary of basic principles at the end of each chapter. A comprehensive Teacher’s Manual gives adopters helpful additional backup.
