This textbook is about the modern military justice system of the United States. It covers court-martial procedures, substantive criminal law, and non-judicial punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, in addition to the Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act, which gives the federal courts jurisdiction over certain acts committed abroad, and the Military Commissions Acts of 2006 and 2009, which created military tribunals for trying enemy beligerents. The Second Edition includes several recent cases and addresses some of the significant changes that Congress has recently made to the Uniform Code of Military Justice and that the President has made to the Manual for Courts-Martial.
