Overview

Homeland Security: A Complete Guide to Understanding, Preventing and Surviving Terrorism is the authoritative textbook on one of the most important topics facing our nation. From complex policy issues to common terrorist tactics, Homeland Security provides a practical foundation for professionals, students, and concerned citizens alike. Designed for readers who need to understand both the “big picture” and their own roles in the war against terror, the book provides a clear, comprehensive and fascinating overview of an increasingly complex and misunderstood topic. This indispensable reference, filled with fascinating real-life examples and tips, covers the basics of homeland security such as: national strategies and principles; federal, state and local roles; terrorist history and tactics; cyber-terrorism; business preparedness; critical infrastructure protection; weapons of mass destruction; and key policy issues. Perfect for academic and training classrooms, each chapter includes an overview, learning objectives, source document, discussion topic, summary, and quiz.

Media Reviews:

"Homeland Security is much more than a textbook. It is an

indispensable reference resource for those seeking to understand how terrorists operate

and the structures and mechanisms that have been developed to respond to the magnitude of the terrorist threats confronting us"

Washington Times, "Securing America" By Joshua Sinai, August 2, 2005

    What a dilemma......!, (2 of 2)

    (1 of 2) is posted in Terrorism and Homeland Security: An Introduction by Jonathan White<BR/><BR/><BR/>As long as there are inequities in the pending issues facing the UN there shall never be a universal definition. <BR/><BR/>Who should take the lead to define the legend `Terrorism' , the UN or the USA. This time, the UN seems to abdicate this responsibility to the USA. Our impression is one that the UN is playing the role of the Carrot and the Stick is relegated to the USA. <BR/><BR/>Perhaps this very dilemma that has been challenging the USA presidents in the last twenty years of the twentieth century until the beginning of this one, will also determine the shape of nations in our times.
