Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Reddick (Citizens and E-Government) details IT's essential role in terror preparedness and the practical hurdles to achieving effective national security and disaster response. While not a comprehensive appraisal of all homeland security technologies, the book contains's three sections and ten chapters, which carefully assess homeland security's major information systems and their influence at all governmental levels, from federal to local. An expansion of 2008's Terrorism Informatics, edited by Hsinchun Chen and others, this book is replete with statistics, illustrative charts, field-specific vocabulary, and in-text citations; it is therefore best suited to government IT, government watchdog, and disaster-management collections.
