ABOUT THIS BOOK

This book examines strategies to combat terrorism and counter nuclear proliferation, and discusses related moral, ethical, and constitutional consequences.  It is a sequel to two volumes previously published by the Academy of Political Science: September 11, Terrorist Attacks, and U.S. Foreign Policy and American Hegemony: Preventive War, Iraq, and Imposing Democracy. The purpose of this latest book is to bring within one volume essays that examine the continued threat of terrorist attacks, the proliferation of nuclear capacity, and, worst of all, the possibility of a nuclear weapon coming into the hands of and being used by these terrorists.  There are also chapters that look at the ethical, moral, and constitutional repercussions that have come from fighting these threats.
