The U.S. Intelligence Community Law Sourcebook: A Compendium of National Security Related Laws and Policy Documents.


The American Bar Association will publish on June 15, 2010 The U.S. Intelligence Community Law Sourcebook: A Compendium of National Security Related Laws and Policy Documents, which purports to be “your complete guide to U.S intelligence community source material, including relevant federal statutes, intelligence authorization acts, executive orders, attorney general and the director of national intelligence guidelines, and proposed significant legislation in the U.S. intelligence community.”  Although this may seem tangential to our topic, it certainly is related.  The rules followed during an investigation may determine the available fora for prosecution.  For example, the rules followed might lead to suppression of evidence in one type of court, or might involve sources and methods which a particular judical system either can not or will not protect.  Like most ABA books, however, it is quite expensive ($199.95).  Also, the nature of its contents means that the book might become out of date very quickly.  This seems to me to be subject matter better suited for a constantly updating electronic database or library.  Though still sight unseen, I do not recommend that students buy this.
