The conjunction of Islamic fundamentalism, WMD, and terrorism has set the stage for a new form of warfare and ushered in a period of national reflection and debate about the proper balance between national security and the rights of the individual. This book contributes to the ongoing national debate by providing easy access to relevant documents from major post-9/11 cases that highlight central constitutional issues raised by the war on terrorism.
