The Vietnam Debate: A Fresh Look at the Arguments, edited by John Norton Moore

Published by University Press of America, 1990. ISBN 0-81917-416-5

This 1990 volume includes papers delivered at a major national conference cosponsored by Center for National Security Law and the ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security. The purpose of the conference was to reconsider the most significant arguments of the Vietnam debates of the late 1960s and early 1970s in the light of the latest evidence on the topic. Contributors include academic specialists, retired military officers, prominent journalists, and even a couple of former student radical leaders. The volume refutes such common "myths" as the widely-held view that the National Liberation Front for South Vietnam was independent of North Vietnam, and that North Vietnam and the Viet Cong "won" the 1968 Tet Offensive in a military sense.

Repealing the War Powers Resolution: Restoring the Rule of Law in U.S. Foreign Policy, written by Robert F. Turner, foreword by Gerald R. Ford

Published by Brassey's (US), Inc., 1991. ISBN 0-08-037435-2

This 1991 volume is largely based upon testimony Professor Turner had given at the request of four different congressional committees on various aspects of the War Powers Resolution. It concludes that the 1973 statute was unnecessary, that important provisions of it are unconstitutional, and that it has undermined peace and endangered the lives of U.S. troops by promoting partisan and divisive debate during periods of national crisis.

Nicaragua v. United States: A Look at the Facts, written by Robert F. Turner

Published by the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis, Inc., Cambridge, MA, 1987. ISBN 0-08-034499-2 (Pergamon-Brassey's).

In 1984, Nicaragua brought suit before the International Court of Justice against the United States alleging various violations of international law in connection with U.S. support for armed insurgents known as the Contras. Against the recommendations of Professor Turner, the United States decided not to take part in the consideration of the case on the merits. This study - which was cited in draft form in one of the opinions to the World Court case - presents some of the evidence that led Professor Turner to conclude that the United States could have won the case on the merits.
