With a renewed emphasis on national and homeland security, the United States is once again seeking to balance the needs of the state with the rights of its citizens as well as those of other nations. This set represents an interdisciplinary approach to the legal dilemmas borne out by the war on terror - against the specific background of Afghanistan, Iraq, and this new kind of conflict. It is a strong contribution to a broader debate visible since 9/11, which will remain in the public eye for the foreseeable future. It addresses the overlap between religion, ethics, armed conflict, and law, within the context of the current conflict.While many issues in areas such as intelligence, reconciliation of civil liberties, dealing with terrorist threats, the permissible bounds of interrogation, and treatment of prisoners and laws governing armed conflict have long-standing precedents under domestic and international law, this war has challenged even long-standing legal interpretations. The contributors to these volumes explore those precedents and contemporary challenges to them.

They look at current debates surrounding intelligence-gathering, civil liberties, responses to terrorist threats, limits on interrogation, treatment of prisoners and preventive conflicts." - Survival
