About the Author

David Bonner is Professor of Law at the University of Leicester, UK. He has published widely on terrorism and human rights, and in the area of social security law.


'By placing the state responses to 9/11 in a historical perspective Professor Bonner has convincingly refuted the claim that the 'the rules have changed'. This scholarly account shows that we have faced the danger of oppressive over-reaction to threats to national security many times before. Will we learn from history or are we doomed merely to repeat it?' Ian Leigh, University of Durham, UK 'Professor Bonner's timely and though-provoking study of British legal approaches to terrorism and insurgency draws on a wealth of comparative and historical material. The result is a cogent challenge to official discourse that claims that the 'rules of the game' have radically changed post 9/11. No democratic society can afford to ignore the lessons he so eloquently points to.' Colm Campbell, University of Ulster, UK 'Executive Measures, Terrorism and National Security. Have the Rules of the Game Changed? deserves more attention than all the interventions of the post 11 September experts put together.' Oxford Journal of Legal Studies ' illuminating exploration of western liberal responses to terrorism.' Prison Service Journal
