National Security Investigations and Prosecutions presents the law governing, and related to, national security investigations (NSIs). An NSI is an investigation conducted by the United States government to acquire information about foreign threats to the national security, e.g., international terrorism.

National security law is often inaccessible, and can be particularly hard to follow when divorced from the context of historical tradition, governmental structures, and the operational reality in which it functions. This treatise explores the full background of NSIs, both from a pre-911 and a post-911 perspective, providing a powerful tool for any attorney handling a case involving a national security investigation or prosecution. The text:

    • Explains the federal government's power, and limits on that power, in the area of NSIs

    • Describes the investigative tools available to the government, explaining how they work and how they can be challenged

    • Provides step-by-step guidance for companies regarding civil and criminal liability for actions involving electronic surveillance

    • Covers laws that apply, and issues that arise, when an NSI leads to prosecution or other litigation

Features

  • National Security Investigations and Prosecutions is a deep and thorough explanation of the law that governs the FBI and other government agencies in their most important activities. It offers incisive and clearly expressed legal argument informed by a pragmatic and balanced approach to some of the most significant and difficult issues of our time.

    Eric Holder, former Attorney General of the United States

  • "Both scholarly and grounded in the practice of national security law, this long-awaited book brings clarity and light to questions once shrouded in secrecy and myth."

    Jamie Gorelick, former Deputy Attorney General of the United States

  • "This treatise is a very helpful contribution for anyone involved in the legal aspects of the war on terrorism and intelligence. It provides expert and thoughtful analysis of this incredibly complex and secretive topic, and helps make the topic accessible…a valuable addition."

    Dianne Feinstein, United States Senator, and Member of the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Committee on the Judiciary

  • I have read extensively in this area, and National Security Investigations and Prosecutions is the single best treatment of the topic that I have ever seen…I believe this book will help all Americans by substantially advancing our ongoing national conversation about these grave and important issues, commensurate with the times in which we live.
