Summary The author, James P. Terry, is a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State; former legal counsel to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; a retired colonel, U.S. Marine Corps; and, today, chairman of the Board of Veterans' Appeals, Department of Veterans Affairs. In The Regulation of International Coercion, Colonel Terry has undertaken a major task: an assessment -- from a U.S. policy perspective and in an international-law framework -- of representative instances where force has recently been used in international relations, the circumstances under which it was used, the instructive international policy and legal constructs that can be applied, and the relationship of these policies to the minimum world order system established in ... the United Nations Charter. Chapters are as follows: Customary Law: The Relationship between Law and the Use of Force; The Minimum World Order System; Humanitarian Intervention; Defense of U.S. Nationals: Intervention in Panama; Response to International Terrorism; Operation DESERT STORM; Operation IRAQI FREEDOM; The Development of Criteria for Peace Operations; The Role of Regional Organizations in Peace-Enforcement Operations; Defense of Critical Infrastructure: Computer Network Defense; and Attacks on Foreign Infrastructure that Pose a Threat to the United States: Computer Network Attack.
