Chapter 2, on political contexts, includes detailed discussion of The 9/11 Commission Report, and the Bush administration's neoconservative National Security Strategy (2002) and its relationship with international law. It includes supporting discussion of a broad range of contemporary source material, including Richard Clarke's Against All Enemies, Michael Ignatieff's The Lesser Evil, Sidney Blumenthal's How Bush Rules, Seymour Hersh's Chain of Command, reports on detention and torture by Amnesty International and other human rights NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations), and documents lobbying for neoconservative policy options. The chapter also refers to a range of scholarship on the Bush Doctrine, and discusses significant contemporary debates about related issues including the “unitary executive” and “adversarial review”.
