As part of its Concise Hornbook Series, West has just published Principles of Counter-Terrorism Law, co-authored by my South Texas colleague, Geoff Corn, and Notre Dame law professor Jimmy Gurule. Here's a description:
The book examines the military and law enforcement responses to international terrorism. Subjects include the legal authority to use military force; determining when the law of armed conflict comes into force; the law of targeting and how this authority is applied to terrorist operatives; preventive detention; prosecution of terrorists by military commission; the legal framework for gathering counter-terrorism intelligence information; prosecuting terrorists and their sponsors; freezing terrorist assets; and civil liability for personal injury or death caused by acts of international terrorism.
With a copyright date of 2011, this has to be one of the first arrivals of the New Year. Congrats to both parents co-authors!
