Volume 76 This volume exhaustively explores the habeas corpus crisis triggered by U.S. detention of suspected terrorists in Guantanamo Bay. Volume 77 This volume addresses three major issues of Terrorism law facing the U.S. in late 2006. The first topic is Congress's assessment of where the country's security stands on the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks. The second section of the volume offers discussion (both in CRS Reports and in Congressional testimony) related to the weaknesses in the U.S. intelligence community. The volume concludes with an analysis of recent legislative approaches to defending the U.S. from terrorist threats. Volume 78 This volume provides a timely review of terrorist developments in several troubled regions of the world.
The CRS reports and Congressional testimony appearing here present updates on Afghanistan, Central Asia, China, Iran, Latin America, and perhaps the most incendiary region in the summer of 2006: Lebanon. Volume 79 This volume presents scholarly discussion on the intersection of science and terror. Specifically, Volume 79 includes testimony and CRS and GAO reports on agroterrorism, bioterrorism, chemical security, energy security, and nuclear security. Volume 80 This volume maintains the series' focus on U.S. congressional testimony and think-tank articles, but the volume also embarks on a new course: primary source documents from the UN and NATO on international measures in combatting terrorism. Volume 81 This volume updates readers on three issues at the forefront of U.S policymaking: restrictions on civil liberties in the war on terror, the threats of biological and nuclear terrorism, and budgetary considerations in the counter-terrorism effort. Volume 82: Covers domestic security, and its documents focus specifically on infrastructure security, maritime security, and the homeland's level of preparedness for various threats.
Authoritative information on these topics changes often, and this volume will elucidate for readers the many changes that have occurred so far this year. Both the Congressional testimony and the agency reports provided in this volume serve that purpose. Volume 83: This volume's theme is transportation security. While such a volume will obviously include much discussion of aviation issues, part of this release also addresses public transit and rail security, including a House of Representatives report on the Rail and Public Transportation Act of 2007. Within the large aviation section, though, the highlights include a GAO review of changes to the "prohibited items" list and a Senate hearing on the 9/11 Commissions' recommendations. Government practitioners and university scholars will need to know these new developments in federal policy in order to ensure that their research is current. Volume 84: This volume's coverage focuses on Iraq, and especially the public debate over where to turn next in the war. The highlights of this volume are General Petraeus's report to Congress and the text of President Bush's televised national address on what he sees as U.S. progress in Iraq.
Other key documents in this edition are the more nuanced studies from the Government Accountability Office and the Independent Commission for Iraq. Along with the text of proposed legislation and other authoritative assessments on the war's progress, these documents provide both knowledgeable researchers and curious lay readers with the analysis necessary to understand a complex, ongoing controversy. Volume 85: This volume's coverage focuses on the U.S. government's surveillance, interrogation, and detention of suspected terrorists. Highlights of this volume involve the U.S. government's increasingly common practice of seeking intelligence through torture (or the threat thereof): Maher Arar is a Canadian engineer arrested by U.S. officials as he passed through a New York airport en route from Europe to Montreal. Those officials arranged for Arar to be placed ultimately in the hands of Syrian officials who tortured him despite the complete lack of evidence against him. Vol. 85 includes Arar's own account of his travels, as presented to Congress in October 2007. This volume also includes the two Higazy case opinions which center on an Egyptian student at a U.S. college who wrongfully detained by U.
S. officials in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Volume 85 features both opinions for comparison purposes. Although several blogs have also posted the original opinion, Vol. 85 provides what may be the only print version available to the general public. Volume 86: With this new volume, Oxford Law introduces the expert commentary and editing of Professor Douglas C. Lovelace, Director of the Strategic Studies Institute at the Army War College. Volume 86 explores the large body of national security and military strategies currently in effect for the U.S. Volume 87: primarily focuses on the similarly difficult topic of how the U.S. may best secure its homeland. By dividing this topic into three prominent categories (aviation security, maritime security, and domestic security), Professor Lovelace expertly presents a summary of current U.S. security policy and assesses the value of those policies. Within the domestic security category, he also provides detailed guidance on such specialized issues as bio-defense and the connection between the drug trade and terrorist financing. Volume 88 constitutes the Terrorism Series' first expansion into non-U.S. legal regimes, and this initial volume deals solely with the UK's approach to security law.
Ever since the London bombings of July 7th, 2005, the UK has been faced with the challenge of improving the nation's security while maintaining its proud tradition of civil liberties. Volume 89 introduces Terrorism researchers to the realm of European Union security law. With an ever-expanding immigrant population and a rising Islamic presence within Europe, the EU's quickly developing security law demands the kind of topically organized document collection that Volume 89 constitutes. Volume 90 provides readers with a detailed and insightful exposition of the law of presidential war powers. The recent expansion of those powers by the Bush Administration has created uncertainty as to where the legal limits for Executive Branch military and surveillance activity currently lie. In this volume, Professor Douglas Lovelace identifies those limits through both his presentation of relevant documents and his expert commentary of the meaning behind those documents.
