Summary
"The new homeland security, military, and legal strategies developed by the United States in the months following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon are given comprehensive treatment in this book by a former senior Pentagon official, combat veteran, and criminal prosecutor. Stephen M. Duncan examines the many questions relating to the role of the armed forces in homeland security, including elements of constitutional and criminal law, foreign policy, tradition and custom, federal-state and interagency relations, politics, and military strategy and operations." "Among the diverse subjects the author discusses are military tribunals and the International Criminal Court, the statute governing the use of military personnel in law enforcement, defense transformation, the constitutional power of the president, and the reorganization of the government to meet the terrorist threat. Duncan also analyzes the strategy and tactics used in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he critically evaluates the nation's political leadership before and after the attacks on September 11th. His book gives readers access to information essential to a full understanding of the problems facing homeland security and at the same time puts them in the midst of policy debates to grasp the immediacy of the situation. It will be welcomed by both general readers and those with experience in national security issues, politics, and the law."--Jacket
