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. About this Volume Volume 88 constitutes the Terrorism Series' first expansion into non-U.S. legal regimes, and this intital 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. Since many other countries, especially the U.S., have been grappling with the same challenge since before the 7/7 bombings, the documents in this volume that present the UK's current approach to security law will serve as meaningful resources. For example, a large portion of the content in this volume addresses recent debates regarding the UK's alleged violations of human rights in the wake of the 7/7 bombings. Given the U.S. controversies related to the Bush's Administration's position on the proper investigation and interrogation of terrorist suspects, this volume's discussion of the UK's approach to human rights serves as a detailed research tool for a comparative study of domestic security law. This latest edition to the Terrorism Series will serve as a valuable reference to scholars and policymakers as they learn from and relate to the challenges the UK has faced in the wake of their own terrorist threats and attacks.show more
