This is both a casebook on U.S. government anti-terrorism criminal enforcement practice and policy, and a volume for teaching a specialized criminal law and procedure course. It provides an in-depth treatment of the major issues that arise in terrorism investigations and in civilian and military terrorism prosecutions. It addresses in detail topics relating to the Guantanamo detention facility and the extended detention of persons suspected of terrorism. Inter alia, it highlights differences in the rules applied in civilian terrorism cases with those used in ordinary crime matters as well as in military commission processes. This edition includes the latest cases, statutes and executive orders regarding subjects like electronic surveillance under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and its amendments; interrogation practice that led to the torture controversy as well as under the latest FBI interrogation rules; the use of national security letters, and pro-active surveillance by the FBI and drone-targeted killing policy. It includes many extended notes, for example, on relevant changes effected by the Obama administration and actions taken during the first year under President Trump.

The Sixth Edition is an entire reworking of this classic casebook. Beyond its traditional role in teaching a broad-gauge federal criminal law course, the book is well suited for use in white collar crime courses or seminars. For example, the fraud materials focus on business practices uncovered in the current economic meltdown. New chapters and new sections include Corporate Criminal Liability (new chapter 9), the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (chapter 5, section E), Plea Bargaining after Lafler and Frye (chapter 17 Part B), corporate plea, cooperation, and deferred-prosecution agreements (chapter 17, Section C), and general defenses to federal criminal liability (chapter 8, Section E). All chapters have been substantially revamped, reflecting recent Supreme Court rulings, new case law and statutory changes in the areas of mail fraud, obstruction, money laundering, terrorism, and weapons offense, and death penalty enhancements for Controlled Substance Act violations.

First published a decade ago, No Equal Justice is the seminal work on race- and class-based double standards in criminal justice. Hailed as a ''shocking and necessary book'' by The Economist, it has become the standard reference point for anyone trying to understand the fundamental inequalities in the American legal system. The book, written by constitutional law scholar and civil liberties advocate David Cole, was named the best nonfiction book of 1999 by the Boston Book Review and the best book on an issue of national policy by the American Political Science Association. No Equal Justice examines subjects ranging from police behavior and jury selection to sentencing, and argues that our system does not merely fail to live up to the promise of equality, but actively requires double standards to operate. Such disparities, Cole argues, allow the privileged to enjoy constitutional protections from police power without paying the costs associated with extending those protections across the board to minorities and the poor. For this new, tenth-anniversary paperback edition, Cole has completely updated and revised the book, reflecting the substantial changes and developments that have occurred since first publication.

This new Understanding treatise provides a compact review of the three main approaches to combating terrorism: criminal proceedings, intelligence and prevention, and military action. The three modes of responses are not the same; each has benefits and limitations, and it will be difficult to find the proper balance among them. Understanding the Law of Terrorism contributes to the search for balance by providing the tools for analysis and application of each of the three modes of response. • With regard to law enforcement, it covers the requirements of conspiracy law, the principal statutes dealing with terrorism, designation of foreign terrorist organizations, and the crime of material support of terrorist activity or organizations. It also goes into the international law dealing with crimes against humanity which could be a source of enforcement principles for terrorism. • On the intelligence front, the book deals with the structure of the Intelligence Community, the operation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), and the mechanics of the Classified Information Procedure Act (CIPA). • With regard to military response, the book summarizes the Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC), delves into military detentions, extraordinary renditions, and harsh interrogation or torture. Finally, the book concludes with a look at the law of emergency situations and the degree to which ordinary processes of law may be suspended in times of crisis, looking at both U.S. and foreign cases. Throughout the book, there are references to the law of other nations and international law. There is also an Appendix with the principal U.S. statutes, the major international conventions and treaties, and the relevant U.S. executive orders.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST "Disturbing and riveting...It will sear your soul." —Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review SHELF AWARENESS'S BEST BOOK OF 2017 Named a best book of the year by Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, GQ, Time, Newsday, Entertainment Weekly, Time Magazine, NPR's Maureen Corrigan, NPR's "On Point," Vogue, Smithsonian, Cosmopolitan, Seattle Times, Bloomberg, Lit Hub's "Ultimate Best Books," Library Journal, Paste, Kirkus, Slate.com and Book Browse From New Yorker staff writer David Grann, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Lost City of Z, a twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances. In this last remnant of the Wild West—where oilmen like J. P. Getty made their fortunes and where desperadoes like Al Spencer, the “Phantom Terror,” roamed—many of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. As the death toll climbed to more than twenty-four, the FBI took up the case. It was one of the organization’s first major homicide investigations and the bureau badly bungled the case. In desperation, the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including one of the only American Indian agents in the bureau. The agents infiltrated the region, struggling to adopt the latest techniques of detection. Together with the Osage they began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history. In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating.

The Nutshell is intended as an introduction for students taking a first course in international criminal law as well as practitioners with little or no familiarity with the field. After a brief introduction to the history of international criminal law (from its origins through Nuremburg to the ad hoc tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda), it summarizes basic principles of international accountability (such as the doctrine of "legality") and concepts of international criminal jurisdiction (including "universal" jurisdiction). Several chapters focus on the International Criminal Court, in particular its substantive jurisdiction (genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression), modes of liability and available defenses. Additional chapters cover the purposes and procedures of extradition (and its alternatives, such as "rendition") and mutual legal assistance (obtaining evidence abroad for use in criminal cases). Attention is also given to the major ?

Moreover, the authors expanded the chapter on Drug Offense Enforcement by including the Controlled Substance Analogue Enforcement Act, and offering Attorney General Sessions' May 10, 2017 modification of the Department of Justice's Charging and Sentencing Policy, which reverses former AG Holder's attempt to decrease penalties for drug offenses. The Corporate Criminal Liability chapter now includes a discussion of the 2015 Yates Memorandum requirement that individual directors and managers should generally be charged along with their corporations, as well as an analysis of whether this policy has actually been implemented. They have added a brief description of the grounds for deportation in our civil immigration system, often based upon conviction of a criminal offense.
