This book will be a valuable source for lawyers and others lacking a military background interested in the rules for carrying out military operations against transnational terrorists. An especially timely examination of the changing laws of war." Professor Williams Banks, Syracuse University School of Law Issues of targeting, detention, interrogation, and prosecution are among the most pressing and controversial questions in our politics today. Some say the treatment of these topics in the laws of war must evolve in order to account for the changing face of armed conflict, while others argue that the case for new rules has not been made, and in any event disagreement abounds as to when the laws of war apply at all. Unfortunately, we don't often hear the perspective of military practitioners in this debate. This indispensable volume closes that gap, and is a must-read for experts and novices alike." Professor Robert M. Chesney, University of Texas School of Law, Member of the U.S. Dept. of Justice's Gitmo Task Force The authors' blend of scholarly perspective with military experience makes the discussion of intricate legal issues relating to the declared 'war on terror' more captivating." Gentian Zyberi International Law Observer The best new book you can read on the subject... Rarely does one get the chance to read a careful, academic analysis written from the vantage point of scholars with such extensive experience with so many different facets of the subject of their study" Jeffrey Kahn,


When a soldier in the field of battle is under attack in a small village and comes upon a villager who could be a combatant or a civilian, what rules govern how that soldier should act? If the soldier detains the villager and determines that the villager is an unaffiliated combatant, what do the rules of detention require? In The War on Terror and the Laws of War, six legal scholars with experience as military officers bring practical wisdom to the contentious topic of applying international law to the battlefield. The authors apply their unique expertise to issues that have gained greater urgency during the United States' wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: including categorizing targets and properly detaining combatants. The modern battlefield has proven to be a difficult arena in which to apply traditional legal rules. The War on Terror and the Laws of War brings clarity to the subject with an insider's perspective.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The War on Terror and the Laws of War 1. Oktober 2009
Von COL Rich Whitaker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was written by a team of legal heavyweights; the authors are all well-recognized for their commonsensical, accurate, and important insights into many of the most critical issues facing contemporary policymakers and military leaders. I deal with these same issues as a senior level legal advisor at the highest levels of our government. Upon reading the first segments, and scanning the contents, I quickly realized that this book would soon become a well-worn resource by the lawyers and staff officers who work in my orbit. Now that I have completed my read, I give this book my highest praise and enthusiastic endorsement; it has both substantial value to academics and pratitioners alike. After learning that Geoff Corn and Dick Jackson were involved in this effort, I had very high expectations, and these expectations were easily realized by their superb work product!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Terrific Book! 4. November 2009
Von Gwenn Wallace - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The War on Terror and the Laws of War is an outstanding contribution to the emerging body of important scholarship in this area. Written by scholars/lawyers/practitioners and experts in their fields, this book is a must read for those interested in Post-Sept 11th national security jurisprudence. This book will be an excellent textbook for college and graduate-level courses focused on such issues as detention, interrogation, targeting, and litigation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The War on Terror and the Laws of War 27. Dezember 2009
Von Jeffrey Kahn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This collection should be on the shelf of anyone interested in the law of armed conflict/international humanitarian law. The most important subjects of the transnational "War on Terror" are presented with clarity and precision (these include the choice of law, targeting, detention, interrogation, war crimes liability, command responsibility, and the difficulty inherent in translating legal principles into on-the-ground practice). What is more, this book brings under one cover what few other books can: the collective experience of scholars with over a century of experience in the United States Army and United States Navy. These authors acquired that experience as military prosecutors and defense counsel, legal advisors and strike planners, and as combatants. This shared experience has not produced complete harmony of opinion: the reader encounters debate within its pages over both the current application of the law and, consequentially, its future. Buy this book and you will soon find that it wears the unmistakable badge of all useful books: a well-worn spine and dog-eared pages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Professor Corn 27. September 2009
Von Douglas S. Wacker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Professor Corn is a very seasonsed and accomplished retired military officer and attorney. His views are very direct and to the point--he is not one to "beat around the bush" and when appropriate, "calls a spade a spade". I look forward to reading this book and know that it will provide insight into how the military justice system operates, and/or "should operate".
