Abstract

A review of the past 50 years of national security law, this book captures the history, growth, and development of the Committee, the nation, and the world in this ever-changing area of the law. Spanning the Cold War through the Sept. 11, 2011 attacks, this anthology records the past and present. The book provides insight and guidance to U.S. national security law practitioners, policymakers, the bar and the American public about unforeseen threats and opportunities, and brings insight into how debates from past history can influence our future.

Keywords: national security policy, foreign policy, foreign affairs, international law, modern American history
