Product description

This new edition of the Blackstone's Guide to the Anti-Terrorism Legislation provides expert explanation of the key anti-terrorism legislation. It offers comprehensive guidance on the effects, extent, and scope of the legislation, along with copies of the key legislation, including the Terrorism Act 2000, Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, Terrorism Act 2006, Terrorism (Northern Ireland) Act 2006, the Justice and Security (Northern Ireland) Act 2007, and the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008. The book is clearly organized with separate chapters on counter-terrorist powers, terrorist investigation, terrorist offences and special criminal processes. It looks at the parallels with Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand legislation, some of which have directly borrowed from the UK system, and highlights important case-law relating to the jurisprudence of human rights. The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published within weeks of the Act, they offer expert commentary by leading names on the effects, extent, and scope of the legislation, plus a full copy of the Act itself. They offer a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes.
