Most widely held works by Philip B Heymann
Terrorism and America a commonsense strategy for a democratic society by Philip B Heymann( )
16 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and German and held by 2,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, Philip Heymann argues that the United States and other democracies can fight terrorism while preserving liberty and maintaining a healthy, unified society. Drawing on his experience in the U.S. Departments of State and Justice, he shows how domestic and foreign intelligence-gathering can thwart terrorism, how the United States must cooperate and share information with its allies, and how terrorism can be prevented in many cases. Terrorism will never disappear completely, but the policies Heymann offers can limit the harm to Americans and protect the integrity of U.S. governmental processes
Terrorism, freedom, and security : winning without war by Philip B Heymann( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Terrorism, Freedom, and Security, Philip Heymann continues the discussion of response to terrorism that he began in his widely-read Terrorism and America. He argues that diplomacy, intelligence, and international law should play a larger role than military action in our counterterrorism policy; instead of waging "war" against terrorism, the United States needs a broader range of policies. Heymann believes that many of the policies adopted since September 11 - including trials before military tribunals, secret detentions, and the subcontracting of interrogation to countries where torture is routine - are at odds with American political and legal traditions and create disturbing precedents. He argues that these policies are the logical consequences of the government's declaring its response to terrorism to be a "war", unlike conventional wars with more or less clearly defined beginnings, ends, and enemies, the fight against terrorism is open-ended and conducted on multiple fronts against a loosely confederated international network of groups and individuals."--Jacket
Drug addiction and drug policy the struggle to control dependence by Philip B Heymann( )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the culmination of five years of impassioned conversations among distinguished scholars in law, public policy, medicine, and biopsychology, about the most difficult questions in drug policy and the study of addictions. As these intensely argued chapters show, the obvious answers are always alluring but frequently wrong. Do drug addicts have an illness, or is their addiction under their control? Should they be treated as patients, or as criminals? Challenging the conventional wisdom in both the psychiatric community and the enforcement community, the authors show the falsity of these standard dichotomies. They argue that the real question is how coercion and support can be used together to steer addicts toward productive life. Written in clear and forceful language, without ideological blinkers and with close attention to empirical data, this book has something to teach both novice and expert in the fields of drug addiction and drug policy. The authors' resistance to sloganeering from right or left will raise the quality of public discussion of a complex issue, and contribute to the management of one of the most painful and enduring problems of American society
Laws, outlaws, and terrorists : lessons from the War on Terrorism by Gabriella Blum( Book )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In an age of global terrorism, can the pursuit of security be reconciled with liberal democratic values and legal principles? During its "global war on terrorism," the Bush administration argued that the United States was in a new kind of conflict, one in which peacetime domestic law was irrelevant and international law inapplicable. From 2001 to 2009, the United States thus waged war on terrorism in a "no-law zone."

Protecting liberty in an age of terror by Philip B Heymann( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since September 11, 2001, much has been said about the difficult balancing act between freedom and security, but few have made specific proposals for how to strike that balance. As the scandals over the abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib and the "torture memos" written by legal officials in the Bush administration show, without clear rules in place, things can very easily go very wrong." "With this challenge in mind, Philip Heymann and Juliette Kayyem, directors of Harvard's Long-Term Legal Strategy Project for Preserving Security and Democratic Freedoms in the War on Terrorism, take a detailed look at how to handle these competing concerns. Taking into account both the national security viewpoint and the democratic freedoms viewpoint, Heymann and Kayyem consulted experts from across the political spectrum - including Rand Beers, Robert McNamara, and Michael Chertoff (since named Secretary of Homeland Security) - about the thorniest and most profound legal challenges of this new era. Heymann and Kayyem offer specific recommendations for dealing with such questions as whether assassination is ever acceptable, when coercion can be used in interrogation, and when detention is allowable. They emphasize that drawing clear rules to guide government conduct protects the innocent from unreasonable government intrusion and prevents government agents from being made scapegoats later if things go wrong. Their recommendations will be of great interest to legal scholars, legislators, policy professionals, and concerned citizens."--BOOK JACKET
