Lustgarten and Leigh have produced a definitive text on the issues that surround National Security issues for a Parliamentary Democracy. Published in 1994 this should be considered one of the primary texts on internal security issues in relation to Parliamentary Democracy and Civil and Societal Liberties. I highly recommend it to both graduate and undergraduate students in the field.

In from the Cold: National Security and Parliamentary Democracy by Laurence Lustgarten and Ian Leigh Oxford, 554 pp, £2. 0, July 1994, ISBN 0 19 825234 X. On 24 September 1940, shortly after 9 . those British radio listeners who had tuned their sets to 213 metres on the medium wave (a little higher than the frequency of the BBC Home Service) were in for a shock. Have you ever seen Beaverbrook?’ asked one of the announcers, referring to the current Minister for Aircraft Production. Andrew Weale’s book prompts some very interesting questions about patriotism and loyalty, but they do not relate to the few ‘renegades’ who stand at the centre of his drama.

How, in a democratic state, can the competing interests of the need for national security and the demand for open government be reconciled? Should Security Services have a legal obligation to report their activities and should their members be held liable for exceeding the powers bestowed upon them by Parliament? These questions have taxed governments and academic commentators for generations until now. The early 1990s have witnessed an unprecedented change in public opinion and governmental attitude away from the extreme levels of secrecy and mystery which have traditionally enshrouded the Security Services. In this searching analysis, two leading constitutional lawyers shed light on the legal powers and basis of this murky area of government, comparing the accountability of Britain's Security Services with the very different situations in Canada and Australia. The authors question whether we still need, or should tolerate, the level of secrecy together with all the possibilities for misuse and abuse of power which accompany it in this authoritative study of the constitutional and legal position of the Security Services in Britain.
