The 6th edition of National Security Law not only updates the leading casebook in this field with recent developments, but adds new chapters on extraterritoriality, cyber operations, bulk collection, the structure of habeas, and the procedural path to terrorism trials. Because the continuing rapid growth of the field and of relevant materials has made them harder to teach, this edition also for the first time makes substantial changes in their presentation to make them more teachable. The co-authors have provided questions before each principal case to guide the reader; streamlined the notes and questions after the cases to make them easier to read; and summarized basic principles in a new feature at the end of each chapter. The result is a book that is not only current and comprehensive, but significantly easier to read and teach.

Peace-building in a number of contemporary contexts involves fragile states, influential customary systems and histories of land conflict arising from mass population displacement. This book is a timely response to the increased international focus on peace-building problems arising from population displacement and post-conflict state fragility. It considers the relationship between property and resilient customary systems in conflict-affected East Timor. The chapters include micro-studies of customary land and population displacement during the periods of Portuguese colonization and Indonesian military occupation. There is also analysis of the development of laws relating to customary land in independent East Timor (Timor Leste). The book fills a gap in socio-legal literature on property, custom and peace-building and is of interest to property scholars, anthropologists, and academics and practitioners in the emerging field of peace and conflict studies.

Strafen aus Respekt vor der Menschenwürde

The justification and commensurability of punishments is a central problem of all state and social philosophies. This essay is concerned with theories of retribution and theories of general prevention of crime, and works out its own point of view in a combination of the concept that the purpose of punishment is to deter the offender and resocialization, and derives from this a plea for a system for dealing with criminals which respects their human dignity.

Ein kritischer Report über ein Thema, das immer brisanter wird Die rasante Entwicklung der Informationstechnologien geht einher mit einem wachsenden Kontrollbedürfnis. Peter Schaar warnt vor der Tendenz, den Einzelnen als Risikofaktor zu betrachten, der beobachtet, registriert und bewertet werden muss. Er skizziert, wie sich demokratische Staaten aus Angst vor Angriffen von außen und vor den eigenen Bürgern zu Überwachungsgesellschaften entwickeln. Ohne unser Wissen werden immer mehr Daten von uns im Internet gesammelt, zu »Profilen« verarbeitet und zu wirtschaftlichen und Informationszwecken ausgewertet. Passdaten sollen weitergegeben werden, private PCs werden von Geheimdiensten durchsucht. Ein brisantes Gemisch, das unsere Demokratie im Kern bedroht.
