National Security Law: Principles and Policy, Third Edition provides a highly accessible but also comprehensive and timely supplement for students studying national security law. This concise treatise is a guide to the legal foundations and architecture that frame the exercise of key national security powers: diplomatic, intelligence, information, military, economic, and criminal. The authors explain essential legal and policy sources and principles that play an essential role in guiding the development, implementation, and review of national security policies. Central to the text is explanation of constitutional text, judicial opinions, statutes, treaties and other sources of international law, and policies. Written by a team of experts in the field, this treatise serves as a useful supplement for the substantively rich but often overwhelming National Security Law texts currently on the market.
