National Security Law

release date: Oct 27, 2022
National Security Law
For the last 30 years, National Security Law has helped create and shape an entire new field of law. It has been adopted for classroom use at most American law schools, all of the military academies, and many non-law graduate programs. The Seventh Edition of this leading casebook provides an up-to-date, user-friendly survey of this extremely dynamic field. Relying heavily on original materials and provocative notes and questions, this book encourages students to play the roles of national security professionals, politicians, judges, and ordinary citizens. And by showing the development of doctrine in historical context, it urges them to see their responsibility as lawyers to help keep us safe and free. Like earlier editions, the new book deals with basic separation-of-powers principles, the interaction of U.S. and international law, the use of military force, intelligence, detention, criminal prosecution, homeland security, and national security information — more than enough to provide teachers with a rich menu of readings for classes. New to the Seventh Edition: Latest developments on U.S. military involvement in Syria and Iran President Trump’s Border Wall and appropriations power Carpenter v. U.S. and recent FISA developments and FISC decisions Trump travel ban “Defending forward” in cyberspace New chapter on nuclear war Professors and students will benefit from: Carefully curated and edited original materials Extensive notes and questions to fill in the blanks Read-ins and chapter summaries to provide perspective Frequent references to historical and political context

Although humans are its main focus, it draws onilluminating examples from a range of other species, including sex changes and aggression in fish, metamorphosis in amphibians, induction of ovulation in different species, and bonding behaviour in birds.The final section of the book looks at ways in which hormones can be used in medicine and agriculture, and can be abused to enhance sporting performance and weight loss.This primer will expand the breadth and depth of student understanding of the endocrine system, its variety, and its huge importance.

Understanding Civil Procedure

release date: Aug 14, 2013
Understanding Civil Procedure
This well-established treatise is premised on the assumption that the key to understanding the principles of civil procedure is to know why: why the principles were created and why they are invoked. The treatise is written to answer these questions as it lays out the basic principles of civil procedure. It also reflects the authors'' belief that students of civil procedure can understand and appreciate complex principles when they are clearly presented; teaching civil procedure does not require dumbing it down. The authors use the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as a model, but they also refer to different state rules and doctrines where appropriate in order to present a representative cross-section of state models. Although they discuss important civil procedure cases in the text, thus supporting the most widely used civil procedure casebooks using these same cases, they also provide useful references to secondary sources and illustrative cases for the reader who wants to explore further.

Raven, Biology, © 2008 8e, Student Edition (Reinforced Binding)
Biology focuses on evolution as a unifying theme. In revising the text, McGraw-Hill consulted with numerous users, noted experts and professors in the field. Biology is distinguished from other texts by its strong emphasis on natural selection and the evolutionary process that explains biodiversity.

That same modern perspective was brought into the completely new art program offering readers a dynamic, realistic, and accurate, visual program. Entirely NEW Visual Program! The entire art program was redone involving a variety of specialists, artists, and medical illustrators who worked very closely with the author team to provide a phenomenal visual program for readers. This new art program focuses on providing images that focus on difficult concepts and provide a clear, consistent, accurate and easy-to-follow visual explanation. Experimental Focus -- Another theme of Biology is that knowledge arises from experimental work that moves us forward. The use of historical and experimental approaches throughout allow the student to not only see where the field is now, but more importantly, how we arrived there. The authors have tried to keep as much historical context as possible and provide information within an experimental framework throughout the text. Strengthened Evolutionary Emphasis -- From the inception of Biology, evolution has been the underlying theme of the text. The Eighth edition has been written with an even greater focus on evolution, with a significant increase of coverage at the molecular level, a good example is the two new chapters dedicated to molecular evolution. This emphasis creates more depth, balancing the amount of evolutionary coverage throughout. Includes print student edition
