About National Security Law Fifty Years of Transformation

A review of the past 50 years of national security law, this new book captures the history, growth, and development of the Committee, the nation, and the world in this ever-changing area of the law. Spanning the Cold War through the September 11, 2011 attacks, this anthology records the past and present. It provides insight and guidance to U.S. national security law practitioners, policymakers, the bar and the American public about unforeseen threats and opportunities, and brings insight into how debates from past history can influence our future.

Testimonials

Here's what others are saying about National Security Law Fifty Years of Transformation: An Anthology:


"On this 50th anniversary, we should all renew our dedication to the vision and purpose of our Committee's founders, conceived in the bygone era of the Cold War. Mindful of the grave, new challenges that face our nation, may we -- like them -- strengthen our commitment to the law as the bulwark of our security and our freedom."
-- Paul Schott Stevens, Chair, ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security (1995-1998) and President, Investment Company Institute.


"The American Bar Association Standing Committee on Law and National Security has been one of the most important contributors in the global struggle for democracy and the rule of law. Founded by Lewis Powell and run in the grand manner by Morrie Leibman, it has earned the congratulations of all freedom loving peoples."
-- John Norton Moore, Chair, ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security (1982-1986) and Director, Center for National Security Law, University of Virginia School of Law.


"The threats we face are different but the importance of the informed discussion and debate on issues arising at the intersection of law and national security that this Committee was established to foster has never been more evident."
-- Suzanne Spaulding, Chair, ABA Standing Committee on law and National Security (2001-2004) and Deputy Under Secretary, National Protection and Programs Directorate, U.S. Department of Homeland Security.


"This committee is one of American law's and one of the country's truly fine institutions and has done a remarkable service over the years in helping all of us understand during the Cold War how to balance our very important and difficult interests with respect to the Constitution and the rule of law on the one hand, and the need for the country to be strong against its serious adversaries on the other."
-- R. James Woolsey, Counselor to the ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security and Chairman, Woolsey Partners LLC.


"There is no single site upon which to erect a monument commemorating the founding of the Committee. Yet, a monument does exist. It is the Committee itself, its members, and what they do. The monument still stands unblemished -- and long may it be so."
-- R. Daniel McMichael, Founding Member, Standing Committee on Law and National Security and Secretary, Sarah Scaife Foundation.
