Terrorism: International Case Law Reporter is an annual collection of the most important cases in security law from around the world. Handpicked and introduced by internationally renowned terrorism scholar Michael Newton and by a distinguished board of experts from around the world, the cases in this series cover topics as diverse as human rights, immigration, freedom of speech, and organizational status. For scholars, students, and practitioners seeking an authoritative and comprehensive resource for research into security law jurisprudence, this unique series serves that specialized purpose like none other on the market. With the 2008 edition of Terrorism: International Case Law Reporter, Oxford introduces detailed headnotes to the series. Professor Michael Newton and his team have provided, for each case, a robust summary and a concise statement of the case's central issues and holding. This edition also adds new topics to the series' purview, including the contentious issue of what legal status "enemy combatants" possess in U.S. courts and the equally volatile issue of whether agents of a state may be held criminally liable for terrorism when carrying out official duties. General Editor Newton has also added Israel and the Middle East as necessary new regional topics for a series that covers terrorism-related jurisprudence worldwide. Indeed, many of the prominent cases in this year's edition come from non-U.S. courts, including an Argetinian case on state terrorism and crimes against humanity. That case, Velasco, appears in this edition in the only English translation available anywhere.
