Professor co-edits new book on Toronto 18 Terrorism Trials

Professor Michael Nesbitt also contributed three chapters to the book.

Canadian Terror: Multi-Disciplinary Perspectives on the Toronto 18 Terrorism Trials aims to fill the evidentiary lacunae that still exists around the Toronto 18 and the (still missing) lessons learned from this series of events; in so doing, this book strives to provide fresh, thorough, and heretofore unheard narratives surrounding the investigation, trial, punishment, and eventual release of arguably the most infamous set of terrorist offenders in Canada.

Michael co-edited the volume with Kent Roach and David Hofmann, co-wrote the introduction and conclusion chapters, and wrote chapter 14, "Sentencing the Toronto 18: Lessons from Then, Lessons for Now."

All chapters are freely available online via The Manitoba Law Journal, and a hardcopy edition will be available on Amazon.
