The founders' Second Amendment : origins of the right to bear arms by Stephen P Halbrook( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2019 in English and held by 1,292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Founders' Second Amendment is the first book-length account of the origins of this element of the Bill of Rights, based on the Founders' own statements as revealed in newspapers, correspondence, debates, and resolutions. Dr. Halbrook investigates the period from 1768 to 1826, from the last years of British rule and the American Revolution through to the adoption of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and the passing of the Founders' generation. His book offers the most comprehensive analysis of the arguments behind the drafting and adoption of the Second Amendment, and the intentions of the men who created it. With the question of the right to bear arms scheduled to come before the Supreme Court in the spring of 2008, The Founders' Second Amendment could scarcely be more timely"--Inside cover

American surveillance : intelligence, privacy, and the Fourth Amendment by Anthony Gregory( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some see domestic intelligence gathering as a crucial task of national security, regardless of personal privacy. Others warn against a surveillance state that tramples constitutional rights. The idea of a total information state has both inspired and frightened Americans. In confronting these controversies, people appeal to law, liberty, or foreign policy to argue for or against surveilling the citizenry. The polarizing topics of surveillance, intelligence, privacy, and Fourth Amendment protections often produce more heat than light. Anthony Gregory offers a nuanced history and analysis of these vexing questions. He highlights the complex relationships between foreign and domestic intelligence, and between national security surveillance and countervailing efforts to safeguard individual privacy. The Fourth Amendment prohibiting unreasonable searches and seizures offers no panacea, he finds, in combating assaults on privacy--whether by the NSA, the FBI, local police, or more mundane administrative agencies. And, he notes, some of the high-stakes issues provoked by intelligence methods have little to do with privacy. Given the advancement of technology, together with the ambiguities and practical problems of Fourth Amendment enforcement, Gregory emphasizes that privacy advocates need to consider multiple policy fronts. -- Provided by publisher

Resurgence of the warfare state : the crisis since 9/11 by Robert Higgs( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the politics and morality that pulled the United States into wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, this collection of essays, stories, and satirical pieces lambasts the highest officials in the executive branch for incompetence and moral blindness. Analyses of both wars and the crisis following 9/11 portray the conflicts as opportunities for special interests to entrench themselves in the U.S. government at the expense of U.S. citizens' civil liberties and tax dollars, and the lives of numerous Afghan and Iraqi non-combatants. Pulling no punches, this work holds George W. Bush and members of his cabinet accountable for acts that would have been prosecutable were the defendants in question not government entities
The power of habeas corpus in America : from the King's Prerogative to the War on Terror by Anthony Gregory( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite its mystique as the greatest Anglo-American legal protection, habeas corpus provides a history featuring opportunistic power plays, political hypocrisy, ad hoc jurisprudence, and many failures in effectively securing individual liberty. The Power of Habeas Corpus in America tells the story of the writ from medieval England to modern America, crediting the rocky history to the writ's very nature as a government power. The book weighs in on habeas's historical controversies - addressing its origins, the relationship between king and parliament, the U.S. Constitution's Suspension Clause, the writ's role in the power struggle between the federal government and the states, and the proper scope of federal habeas for state prisoners and for wartime detainees from the Civil War and World War II to the War on Terror. The concluding chapters stress the importance of liberty and detention policy in making the writ more than a tool of power. Taken as a whole, the book presents a more nuanced and critical view of the writ's history, showing the dark side of this most revered judicial power"--Page [i]
