Terrorism: Documents of International and Local Control, Volume 83
Oxford University Press, USA, Oct 17, 2007 - Law - 600 pages
Volume 83' s theme is transportation security. While such a volume will obviously include much discussion of aviation issues, part of this release also addresses public transit and rail security, including a House of Representatives report on the Rail and Public Transportation Act of 2007. Within the large aviation section, though, the highlights include a GAO review of changes to the "prohibited items" list and a Senate hearing on the 9/11 Commissions' recommendations. Government practitioners and university scholars will need to know these new developments in federal policy in order to ensure that their research is current. Terrorism: Documents of International and Local Control is a hardbound series that provides primary-source documents on the worldwide counter-terrorism effort. Chief among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional testimony, reports by such federal government bodies as the Congressional Research Service and the Government Accountability Office, and case law covering issues related to terrorism. Most volumes carry a single theme, and inside each volume the documents appear within topic-based categories. The series also includes a subject index and other indexes that guide the user through this complex area of the law.
