Aviation Law after September 11th introduces the topic of aviation law with a particular emphasis on the subject post-September 11, 2001. Formatted as a traditional law school course book, the book presents the major tensions in the commercial and general aviation marketplace: consumer protection versus the corporate bottom-line; regulation versus deregulation; private enterprise and positive government; price versus convenience; liberty and privacy interests versus national security; internationalism versus nationalism; democracy versus terror; and fundamentally, life and death. With new content about “drones,” Aviation Law after September 11th is segmented into six chapters—aviation travel rights, deregulation and federal preemption, aviation economics, labor and management, aviation security, and accidents—and provides detailed end-of-chapter notes and problems for further study.
