Civil terrorism law is an emerging area of law and an intriguing subject. It is attracting attention from many different areas including the legal arena, the United States Government, the scholarly community, and the media. Until now, there has been no comprehensive reference available for attorneys interested in or working on civil terrorism cases in this new area of law and political science. This book is designed to fill that gap.This book focuses on civil terrorism law and practice. The authors teach you about the major civil terrorism cases that have helped to generate this area of law, as American victims have struggled to find justice through the legal system. You will also learn about the federal statutes that are connected to this area of law including the Alien Tort Claims Act of 1789, the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1990 which is also know as the Klinghoffer Act, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, the Flatow Amendment, and more. They also show the distinct difference between civil terrorism cases, where virtually all targets of plaintiffs' claims have been determined to be either state sponsors of terrorism, designated terrorist organizations, or otherwise proudly admit, acknowledge or boast of their violent and often criminal activities, and other civil cases where the court determines how to balance conflicting but usually legitimate legal claims. The authors also teach you about problems with satisfying judgements once they are awarded, the responsibility of the plaintiff to provide the burden of proof that the defendant is liable, and the feasibility of lawsuits against terrorist organizations.This book is an essential reference if you are currently interested or involved in civil terrorism cases, interested in teaching lawyers, political scientists, and law and political science students about this new area of law, or encouraging the development of civil terrorism law as its own distinct area of American and international civil law.

This book fills an important gap in the literature on terrorism. It is designed as a case book, including seminal cases which set out the fundamental rules or principles applicable when circumstances are sufficiently intense to warrant use of the term 'terrorism'. The United Kingdom is used as a primary source because English law regulating political violence has been continually refined in the 300 years since the Glorious Revolution and has served as a paradigm for other countries that derive their jurisprudence from that experience. Ireland represents what might be called the post-revolutionary variation. Its laws were drafted and are administered by rebels and the children of rebels, who clearly recall the successes and failures of the British campaigns in their country, and who continue to observe the repercussions of pacification efforts in Northern Ireland. Because there are fewer Irish court decisions and because Irish law in many instances mirrors the law of the United Kingdom, only that Irish material which adds a distinctive perspective is included. The United States presents a third, peaceful model and a country which is increasingly confronted by terrorist acts. The themes addressed in this book revolve around legal efforts to reconcile security considerations with those liberal democratic values which the nations consider to be their constitutional heritage. Part I looks at the treatment of aliens - both those who seek admission and those admitted whom the state decides to expel. Part II examines selected problems involving citizens' rights, and the extent (if any) to which these rights can be impaired by anti-terrorist measures. Part III focuses on these institutional restraints on governmental behaviour derived from legislation or from common law.

Military Justice: Cases and Materials gives teachers a new and powerful tool to introduce students to military law while deepening their understanding of criminal law and procedure, comparative law, international law, and constitutional law. At a time when the tempo of military operations around the world seems to increase constantly and high-profile courts-martial dominate the headlines, this book gives students and teachers unprecedented the tools needed to analyze, understand, and evaluate worldwide military justice. With prosecutions arising from prisoner abuse, atrocities against civilians, and servicemembers' opposition to ongoing wars, the military justice system now has a prominence unmatched since the Vietnam era. This higher profile for courts-martial, combined with the difficult and fundamental legal issues raised by the military commissions, suggests that military courses will now be in great demand. This casebook provides the text for such a course. Its coverage of the U.S. court-martial and other systems of military criminal law provides a framework through which students can explore the role and operation of military justice within a democratic society. In an era of worldwide deployments, multi-national operations, and global terrorism, this book illuminates the interconnectedness of military justice systems through a far-ranging collection of judicial opinions, statutes, regulations, commentaries, and scholarship. While the materials presented draw heavily from the United States, most chapters also present materials from other jurisdictions to enhance students' appreciation of both the unique American experience and the availability of alternative approaches to military discipline, accountability, and punishment. International norms are also examined. Part I, Foundations, sets the stage by exploring the origins and purposes of military justice, pointing out the many sources of law that govern this area, analyzing the unique and critical role of the commander in military justice, and assessing professional responsibility rules for military lawyers. Part II, Principles, steps further into legal analysis to study the jurisdiction of military courts, identify crimes and defenses that apply only in a military context, and analyze the extent to which the obligations of military service alter the protection of fundamental rights. Part III, Trials, brings students into the court-martial to meet military judges, juries, and counsel and to study the rules of procedure, evidence, sentencing, and appeal. Part IV, Special Contexts, takes a broader approach to assess the challenges that a military justice system faces during combat and peacekeeping operations. This part also looks at the topic of military commissions. Part V, The Future, gives students a glimpse into the changes that lie ahead by focusing on the processes of legal reform and globalization.

There is a widely held belief in the imminent probability of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons of mass destruction being used by terrorists against civilian targets. This edited volume critically assesses the suggestion that one safeguard against this possibility would be to strengthen existing international prohibitions against state- level acquisition of such weapons. A glimpse of the possible potential of terrorist use of weapons of mass destruction has been seen through the actions of the Tokyo Aum group, and through the use of chlorine by insurgents in Iraq. However, the extent of the real threat posed is as yet unclear, and safeguarding against it in developing countries will not be easy. This book assembles specialists in each category of WMD in order to examine the potential of expanding the three ‘classical’ arms control treaties in order to combat the threat posed by smaller terrorist groups, and draws conclusions as to the strengths and weaknesses of this suggestion.
