Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Professor Ronald J. Sievert’s Defense, Liberty, and the Constitution provides a clear, direct, and honest narrative on what the law and the Constitution state with respect to national security issues. Each chapter identifies and thoroughly discusses the many important legal and political matters that have become relevant as a result of today’s most notable threats, while also describing how similar problems have been handled throughout the country’s history. This title addresses the USA PATRIOT Act, the export of sensitive U.S. weapons technology to potential enemies, and all other critical topics, recognizing the wide range of divergent views that have emerged from people’s conflicting philosophical approaches.

The U.S. Constitution asserts that its government must "provide for the common defense" and "secure the blessings of liberty." Ronald J. Sievert’s Defense, Liberty, and the Constitution seeks to find the proper balance that will make the nation more secure while preserving the blessings of liberty enshrined in the Constitution to the greatest extent possible.

It provides scenarios of possible terrorist threats, explains the issues it presents for law enforcement, and then highlights current laws that should be considered to address these problems.
