Amanda L. Tyler (University of California, Berkeley - School of Law) has posted Habeas Corpus in Wartime and Larger Lessons for Constitutional Law (Harvard Law Review Blog 2019) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Since publishing Habeas Corpus in Wartime: From the Tower of London to Guantanamo Bay (Oxford University Press), I have been asked two questions more than any others: first, why I wrote the book, and second, what, if anything, modern jurists and scholars should do with the historical evidence unearthed and presented therein. It turns out that one particular chapter of the book has much to say on both of these otherwise seemingly unrelated questions, and I devote my discussion here to that chapter.
