A new edition of Clive Walker's book, "Blackstone's Guide to the Anti-Terrorism Legislation" has been published recently by Oxford University Press.

The book provides expert explanation of the key anti-terrorism legislation. It offers comprehensive guidance on the effects, extent, and scope of the legislation, along with key extracts from the legislation, including the Terrorism Act 2000, Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, Terrorism Act 2006, the Justice and Security (Northern Ireland) Act 2007, the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008, the Terrorist Asset-Freezing etc. Act 2010, and the Terrorism Prevention and Investigations Measures Act 2011 .

The book is clearly organised with separate chapters on counter-terrorist powers, terrorist investigation, terrorist offences and special criminal processes. It highlights important case-law relating to the jurisprudence of human rights. It further explores public perceptions of counter-terrorism measures, desistance from terrorism, and the developing issue of terrorism and the internet. Statistical data is given in all chapters, and there is also analysis and critique of official documents and the reviews from Parliament and the Independent Reviewers of Terrorism Legislation.
