The Cambridge Handbook of Surveillance Law by Surveillance presents a conundrum: how to ensure safety, stability, and efficiency while respecting privacy and individual liberty. From police officers to corporations to intelligence agencies, surveillance law is tasked with striking this difficult and delicate balance. That challenge is compounded by ever-changing technologies and evolving social norms. Following the revelations of Edward Snowden and a host of private-sector controversies, there is intense interest among policymakers, business leaders, attorneys, academics, students, and the public regarding legal, technological, and policy issues relating to surveillance. This handbook documents and organizes these conversations, bringing together some of the most thoughtful and impactful contributors to contemporary surveillance debates, policies, and practices. Its pages explore surveillance techniques and technologies; their value for law enforcement, national security, and private enterprise; their impacts on citizens and communities; and the many ways societies do - and should - regulate surveillance.

Legal Issues in the Struggle Against Terror by More than two decades before the 9/11 attacks, the University of Virginia School of Law established the nation's first think tank devoted to the study of legal issues affecting U.S. national security. The Center for National Security Law has assembled some of America¿s most thoughtful and respected legal experts to address various aspects of the ongoing struggle against terror. From military commissions and the treatment of detainees to the outsourcing of military functions to civilian contractors and the use of civil litigation against terrorists, this remarkable volume is designed to provide legal scholars, policy makers, and the general public with a serious look at critical legal issues in this unusual armed conflict. Also addressed within the nineteen chapters are the threats of nuclear and biological terrorism and of cyberterrorism, protecting privacy while sharing information with allies and within our own government, and the use of the state secrets privilege to terminate litigation. The volume also includes important chapters on immigration, extradition, rendition, and dealing with ''hate propaganda'' without violating the First Amendment. This landmark volume is recommended both for classroom use and for general reading by anyone interested in understanding the most important legal controversies in the struggle against terror.
