What are the legal limits for America's global war on terrorism? The main volume of the set sheds light on these questions and on the general body of national security law as well as analyzes the legal foundation for international arms control in light of the global war on terror. O'Neill also provides a supplementary volume that saves researchers from conducting hours of work online and in other, less comprehensive print resources. Speaking from the unique viewpoint of his decades of experience in international law and political consulting, O'Neill has arranged a thorough, but compact resource for creating effective and principled security policy. National Security and the Legal Process offers readers a practical approach to resolving the age-old tensions between security and freedom and between self-defense and respect for sovereignty.
