Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists: Lessons from the War on Terrorism


By Gabriella Blum and Philip B. Heymann

Gabriella Blum and Philip Heymann reject the argument that traditional American values embodied in domestic and international law can be ignored in any sustainable effort to keep the United States safe from terrorism. In Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists, they demonstrate that the costs are great and the benefits slight from separating security and the rule of law.
