National security concerns have arisen in surprising places, and today’s national security climate involves a unique and dangerous situation for not only the federal government, but private entities as well. Recent Trends in National Security Law provides analysis of serious national security threats clouding our nation’s future, the volatile intersection of political crime and national security, and a discussion of the Government’s role in cyber threat “vulnerability mitigation”; i.e., strengthening our cyber defenses to reduce the nation’s vulnerability to cyber attack and cyber espionage.
