Focus on Terrorism, Volume 10 $195.00
Editors: Joshua B. Morgan
Book Description:
Terrorism, sadly, seems here to stay and to stay with a vengeance. It seems that the United States was not prepared for it and now must play catch-up. In doing so, even an agreement on how to define terrorism is in doubt and what to do about it seems beyond comprehension at the moment. This volume presents a broad cross-section of analyses of weaknesses and actions in the ongoing battle, including: An overview of the U.N. Convention against torture and the removal of aliens; ocean piracy and its impact on insurance; the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India and the implications for U.S. interests; addressing Guantanamo detainees and analysis of selected legislative proposals; border security along the U.S. international border; amendments to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act set to expire in 2009; Latin American terrorism issues; 'Homeland Security Intelligence'; 'Renditions' and constraints imposed by laws on torture; enemy combatant detainees and habeas corpus; and the emergence of the Lal Masjid as a militant entity in Pakistan.
This book consists partially of public documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access.
