About the Author

H. L. Pohlman is Professor of Political Science; A. Lee Fritschler Professor of Public Policy at Dickinson College. He previously served as Judicial Fellow at the Supreme Court of the United States, Washington, DC.


Pohlman highlights the importance of U.S. national security in today(1)s turbulent world, but he does so without losing sight of the fundamental fact that civil liberties and human rights are legal principles at the core of what America stands for. -- Nadine Strossen, John Marshall Harlan II Professor of Law, New York Law School and Former President, American Civil Liberties Union, 1991-2008
For those trying to understand the complicated development of national security law, this book may represent the perfect means. Each chapter combines the substantive heft of primary documents with narrative explanation whose easy exposition disguises impressive erudition. In short, Pohlman has gracefully translated the courtroom to the classroom. -- Andrew Rudalevige, Bowdoin College
H. L. Pohlman's U.S. National Security Law is a comprehensive, clear, and engaging approach to an important aspect of foreign policy. The volume deftly integrates legal analysis with political realities, and nicely situates the United States's legal and political issues within the broader international legal and political environments. -- Matthew Zierler, James Madison College
