This book analyses the human rights impacts of anti-terrorism laws and practices post September 11th. It evaluates whether there are objective grounds for singling out people based on their nationality, national origin, 'race', or religion and argues that discriminatory anti-terrorism measures will fundamentally reshape these legal regimes.

Francesca Galli, The Cambridge Law Journal A reliable source of insightful information for students and advanced researchers in the field of international and human rights law. Further, it will be of interdisciplinary interest to international relations and politics scholars, as it explicitly addresses the international context of the anti-terrorism measures discussed.

Legal Studies, Vol.29, No.1 This is an important book written at a time when the creation of dualism between 'us', the ruling majority of the State authorities, and 'them', the minorities and/or non-nationals, has gained momentum and cultural conflicts are continually regressing the concept of the democratic state in a globalising society.

Ben Saul, The Modern Law Review 72 (3) 2009 ...outstanding monograph, which combines rigorous empirical analysis of selected anti-terrorism laws with an excellent grasp of human rights law principles and a sophisticated theoretical framework.

Ben Saul, The Modern Law Review 72 (3) 2009 [A] magnificent piece of scholarly research, and one which stands head and shoulders above the majority of books on terrorism since 9/11.

Helen Fenwick, Human Rights Law Review, 9, 2009 Human Rights and Non-Discrimination in the 'War on Terror' represents a worthy and thought-provoking exploration of the issue of direct discrimination in this context. It is likely to provoke further debate as to the human rights implications and genuinely non-discriminatory nature of the alternative it proposes-formal rules that are applicable to everyone...This book should be read by all those working in this field; it makes a very significant contribution to the current deabte in drawing attention to the issue of direct discrimination which has been neglected in much of the writing on this subject.

Toby King, European Commission ...insightful study...invaluable study
