By: Ronald Sievert
The cases presented and analyzed were chosen with an eye to their impact on U.S. policy and have evolved from some of the most dramatic events of the twentieth century, including the Japanese exclusion in WWII, the prosecution of the Rosenbergs and Wen Ho Lee, the investigation of the first bombing of the World Trade Center, the trials of Manuel Noriega, Oliver North and Timothy McVeigh, among others. This edition also includes notes and cases related to the USA Patriot Act, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, NSA surveillance, the Military Commissions Act, Guantanamo, coercive interrogation and the designation and rights of enemy combatants. This edition is clearly organized with chapters on the national security offenses of treason, espionage, terrorism and the export of the sensitive and classified technology. An important work in the field, Sievert’s Cases and Materials on U.S. Law and National Security belongs on the shelf of all research libraries.
