Terrorism and America : a commonsense strategy for a democratic society by Philip B Heymann( )

24 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and German and held by 3,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Philip Heymann argues that the United States and other democracies can fight terrorism while preserving liberty and maintaining a healthy, unified society. Drawing on his experience in the U.S. Departments of State and Justice, he shows how domestic and foreign intelligence-gathering can thwart terrorism, how the United States must cooperate and share information with its allies, and how terrorism can be prevented in many cases. Terrorism will never disappear completely, but the policies Heymann offers can limit the harm to Americans and protect the integrity of U.S. governmental processes
Drug addiction and drug policy : the struggle to control dependence by William N Brownsberger( )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 1,727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the culmination of five years of impassioned conversations among distinguished scholars in law, public policy, medicine, and biopsychology, about the most difficult questions in drug policy and the study of addictions. As these intensely argued chapters show, the obvious answers are always alluring but frequently wrong. Do drug addicts have an illness, or is their addiction under their control? Should they be treated as patients, or as criminals? Challenging the conventional wisdom in both the psychiatric community and the enforcement community, the authors show the falsity of these standard dichotomies. They argue that the real question is how coercion and support can be used together to steer addicts toward productive life. Written in clear and forceful language, without ideological blinkers and with close attention to empirical data, this book has something to teach both novice and expert in the fields of drug addiction and drug policy. The authors' resistance to sloganeering from right or left will raise the quality of public discussion of a complex issue, and contribute to the management of one of the most painful and enduring problems of American society
Terrorism, freedom, and security : winning without war by Philip B Heymann( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Terrorism, Freedom, and Security, Philip Heymann continues the discussion of response to terrorism that he began in his widely-read Terrorism and America. He argues that diplomacy, intelligence, and international law should play a larger role than military action in our counterterrorism policy; instead of waging "war" against terrorism, the United States needs a broader range of policies. Heymann believes that many of the policies adopted since September 11 - including trials before military tribunals, secret detentions, and the subcontracting of interrogation to countries where torture is routine - are at odds with American political and legal traditions and create disturbing precedents. He argues that these policies are the logical consequences of the government's declaring its response to terrorism to be a "war", unlike conventional wars with more or less clearly defined beginnings, ends, and enemies, the fight against terrorism is open-ended and conducted on multiple fronts against a loosely confederated international network of groups and individuals."--Jacket
Laws, outlaws, and terrorists : lessons from the War on Terrorism by Gabriella Blum( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 1,546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an age of global terrorism, can the pursuit of security be reconciled with liberal democratic values and legal principles? During its 'global war on terrorism, ' the Bush administration argued that the United States was in a new kind of conflict, one in which peacetime domestic law was irrelevant and international law inapplicable. From 2001 to 2009, the United States thus waged war on terrorism in a 'no-law zone.' Gabriella Blum and Philip Heymann reject the argument that traditional American values embodied in domestic and international law can be ignored in any sustainable effort to keep the United States safe from terrorism. In Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists, they demonstrate that the costs are great and the benefits slight from separating security and the rule of law. Blum and Heymann argue that the harsh measures employed by the Bush administration were authorized too broadly, resulted in too much harm, and often proved to be counterproductive for security. Blum and Heymann recognize that a severe terrorist attack might justify changing the balance between law and security, but they call for reasoned judgment instead of a wholesale abandonment of American values. They also argue that being open to negotiations and seeking to win the moral support of the communities from which the terrorists emerge are noncoercive strategies that must be included in any future efforts to reduce terrorism."--Publisher's description

16 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The politics of public management by Philip B Heymann( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do political appointees chosen to head government agencies deal with the powerful political forces that surround them? In a fascinating and instructive book Philip B. Heymann, a professor of law who has held numerous government management positions, draws on his own experience and on the successes and failures of such prominent officials as Caspar Weinberger, Anne Burford Gorsuch, Les Aspin, Edward Meese, and Joseph Califano in order to explore the political context of high-level government management
Protecting liberty in an age of terror by Philip B Heymann( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since September 11, 2001, much has been said about the difficult balancing act between freedom and security, but few have made specific proposals for how to strike that balance. As the scandals over the abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib and the "torture memos" written by legal officials in the Bush administration show, without clear rules in place, things can very easily go very wrong." "With this challenge in mind, Philip Heymann and Juliette Kayyem, directors of Harvard's Long-Term Legal Strategy Project for Preserving Security and Democratic Freedoms in the War on Terrorism, take a detailed look at how to handle these competing concerns. Taking into account both the national security viewpoint and the democratic freedoms viewpoint, Heymann and Kayyem consulted experts from across the political spectrum - including Rand Beers, Robert McNamara, and Michael Chertoff (since named Secretary of Homeland Security) - about the thorniest and most profound legal challenges of this new era. Heymann and Kayyem offer specific recommendations for dealing with such questions as whether assassination is ever acceptable, when coercion can be used in interrogation, and when detention is allowable. They emphasize that drawing clear rules to guide government conduct protects the innocent from unreasonable government intrusion and prevents government agents from being made scapegoats later if things go wrong. Their recommendations will be of great interest to legal scholars, legislators, policy professionals, and concerned citizens."--Jacket

Long-Term Legal Strategy Project for Preserving Security and Democratic Freedoms in the War on Terrorism by Philip B Heymann( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major debates about balancing democratic freedoms with security - from the Patriot Act to recent Supreme Court decisions on detention powers to what constitutes torture - have provided very little guidance on long-term legal strategies necessary to confront ongoing national security threats. To address this deficiency, the National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism and Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and Law School convened a bi-partisan group of experts to consider the challenges ahead and how to design our laws to preserve both our security and our democratic way of life. The final report of the Long-Term Legal Strategy Project for Preserving Security and Democratic Freedoms in the War on Terrorism includes analysis and specific legislative recommendations to deal with the thorniest - and most profound - legal challenges of this new era
