Introduction, 69 CORNELL L. REV. 685 (1984)
There are few more crucial constitutional questions before the
country today than the reconciliation of national security interests with
our system of individual liberties. The issues go to the heart of the democratic
process. They involve no less than the application of the rule of
law to the various measures being proposed and adopted in the name of
national security. Yet the difficulties confronted in seeking a successful
accommodation between the demands of national security and the
maintenance of individual rights can hardly be overestimated.
