Center scholars engage in a broad range of advanced research on topics of national security law and frequently publish books, monographs, and articles in law reviews and other professional periodicals. Proceedings and papers from Center-sponsored conferences are often published as books or in special issues of law reviews.
The Center's most ambitious early program was the preparation in 1990 of a law school casebook National Security Law. It was fully revised and updated in 2015 with a third edition titled National Security Law & Policy since many of the topics are addressed from both a policy and legal standpoint. In 1995, the Center published National Security Law Documents, both as a supplement to the casebook and as a free-standing desk reference for scholars and practitioners. The second edition was published in 2006. In addition, Center scholars have published numerous books and articles and have contributed to the op-ed pages of such newspapers as USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Washington Times, and the International Herald Tribune.
Solving the War Puzzle, Civil Litigation Against Terrorism, To Oppose Any Foe, Legal Issues in the Struggle Against Terror, the new third edition of National Security Law & Policy, and the second edition of National Security Law Documents are now available at Carolina Academic Press.
Another addition to the Center's publications program is a series of "Occasional Papers," which began in 1999 with William T. Lee's monograph, The Korean War Was Stalin's Show, and includes as well Professor Turner's The ABM Treaty and the Senate: Issues of International and Constitutional Law. The "Capitol Hill Forum Series" was also recently inaugurated with the publication of The ABM Treaty in a Changed World, a collection of papers presented at the February 1999 forum in Washington, D.C., co-sponsored by the Center for National Security Law and the Nixon Center.
