What are the legal limits for America's global war on terrorism? The main volume of the set sheds light on these questions and on the general body of national security law as well as analyzes the legal foundation for international arms control in light of the global war on terror. O'Neill also provides a supplementary volume that saves researchers from conducting hours of work online and in other, less comprehensive print resources. Speaking from the unique viewpoint of his decades of experience in international law and political consulting, O'Neill has arranged a thorough, but compact resource for creating effective and principled security policy. National Security and the Legal Process offers readers a practical approach to resolving the age-old tensions between security and freedom and between self-defense and respect for sovereignty. About this Volume In this two-volume set, attorney and professor Philip O'Neill uses his vast expertise to explore the difficult legal principles that relate to U.S. conduct in its War on Terror.

Instead of taking a simplistic, polemical approach to the debate between the imperative of security and the imperative of liberty, O'Neill instead advocates a more practical, process-based model for resolving that classic tension. O'Neill objectively provides the information and insight necessary to understand and improve current U.S. security policy. National Security and the Legal Process moves beyond the narrow debate between security assurance and civil liberties to analyze the legal implications of recent U.S. and U.N. action on issues such as bioterrorism and nuclear threats. With a detailed discussion of how best to address those two modern threats, National Security and the Legal Process acts as a comprehensive resource for policymakers and for the scholars and who influence them. The supplement of primary documents that accompanies O'Neill's monograph will remove hours of unnecessary research for practitioners as well as the next generation of policymakers: who include students enrolled in law schools and graduate programs.
