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. Managing the Nation's Borders During the Global War Against Terrorists presents three viewpoints on the problem of securing U.S. borders: the U.S. government's self-assessment, the often critical judgment of independent agencies like the Government Accountability Office ("GAO") and the Congressional Research Service ("CRS"), and General Editor Douglas C. Lovelace's own critique both of the governmental pronouncements and of those GAO/CRS reports.
By presenting both the text of border-related regulations and these three perspectives on those regulations' effectiveness, Lovelace provides researchers with a one-volume, comprehensive exposition of the topical issue of border security. Even more importantly, the documents and commentary in this volume will provoke policymakers and other government staff into thinking differently and creatively about the challenge of securing borders that extend for thousands of miles over often harsh terrain. For example, Lovelace and some of the included authors challenge the notion that physical barriers alone will impede the entry of terrorists. Similarly, Lovelace here encourages his readers to envision borders not just as a means to regulate crime but also as a vehicle for international cooperation between, in this case, the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. This volume is essential for any researcher seeking a current, tough-minded analysis of U.S. border security.
