Homeland Security Description

The definitive guide to the homeland security enterprise―updated with critical changes in missions, tactics, and strategies

“[T]he best. . . .The book is extremely well organized for an undergraduate class in homeland security.”
―Homeland Security Affairs

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.”
The Washington Times

Homeland Security: A Complete Guide is the authoritative guide to the history, mission, and evolution of the national homeland security enterprise, including federal, state, local, and private sector efforts. Whether you’re a first responder, corporate executive, government official, or concerned citizen, this book provides a comprehensive understanding of U.S. homeland security and your own role in preparing for and responding to terrorism and disasters.

Since publication of the previous edition in 2005, the Department of Homeland Security, other government agencies, and the broader homeland security enterprise have grown to cover “all hazards” and respond to emerging threats and policies.

Documenting and analyzing these trends, this new edition of Homeland Security: A Complete Guide has been expanded and updated to include:

  • New insights from the authors’ close contacts with high-level government and business officials
  • Late-breaking academic research, government reports, and examples from the field
  • Lessons learned from foiled terror plots, natural disasters, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq
  • The use of emerging technologies by terrorists and responders alike
  • Controversies surrounding civil liberties, airport security, immigration, and government funding

An ideal resource for academic and training classrooms, Homeland Security: A Complete Guide includes an overview, learning objectives, source documents, discussion topic, summary, and quiz for each chapter.
