Description

Terrorism: Documents of International and Local Control is a hardbound series that provides primary-source documents on the worldwide counter-terrorism effort. Chief among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional testimony, reports by such federal government bodies as the Congressional Research Service and the Government Accountability Office, and case law covering issues related to terrorism. Most volumes carry a single theme, and inside each volume the documents appear within topic-based categories. The series also includes a subject index and other indices that guide the user through this complex area of the law. With the addition of commentary from a prominent member of the U.S. national security establishment, Professor Douglas C. Lovelace, this series becomes the premiere resource for an informative and analytical discourse on terrorism and how it continues t have a catastrophic effect on our society. Although Professor Lovelace acknowledges the current Iraq debate in his opening pages, 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. The Terrorism series remains a unique resource on all issues related to terrorism.show more
