Rather than depend heavily on lengthy federal government reports, Phil Purpura's work will provide a broad picture of the problem of terrorism from multiple perspectives and explain countermeasures from several sectors of society, including action outside of Washington, DC, on the state and local levels. Topics covered include the impact of terrorism, action by the public and private sectors, the roles of security and law enforcement practitioners, security methods in effect, emergency management strategies, and a host of developing issues. As is the case with Mr. Purpura's previously published works, the text will be designed to serve in the classroom and help to fill the need for the dozens of new courses being offered by schools and training facilities nation wide, but will appeal to security professional as well. There is a companion Web site provided for supplemental information as world events develop and Homeland Security changes. Purpura has been a security educator for more than 25 years and has published, several books on the topic including the bestselling SECURITY AND LOSS PREVENTION.
