  • Description

    This book was developed to provide a student-oriented concise treatise covering the most commonly addressed issues in a national security law course. It provides students comprehensive yet accessible insight into how law, policy, and practice influence national security policy. The authors explain the interaction of constitutional text, judicial opinions, statutes, treaties, and historical practice. The comprehensive coverage provided by this book makes it ideal as either a supplement to a national security law casebook or a stand-alone source for a national security law course. The narrative approach to this book also makes it ideal for teaching national security law and policy in non-law school contexts.
