'Terror and Consent' by Philip Bobbitt

Terror and Consent: The Wars for the Twenty-First Century by Philip Bobbitt.

War Plans, review by Niall Ferguson, The New York Times, April 13, 2008
To summarize: Bobbitt believes that there is a real war against terror; that civil liberties as previously understood may need to be curtailed to win it; that we must nevertheless fight it without violating our commitment to the rule of law; and that the United States cannot win it alone.
