Reviews

"To illuminate Homeland Security is an ambitious undertaking in a world where the topic often generates more heat than light. Through integration of governmental, business and academic perspectives, the authors succeed in providing the reader with a vital framework for understanding. I know of no other single source that provides students and policy makers with such a thorough, yet eminently readable volume."

- Gregory Saathoff MD, Executive Director, Critical Incident Analysis Group (CIAG), University of Virginia School of Medicine"Finally, a comprehensive and coherent textbook for the homeland security arena. The authors have undertaken a complex subject matter and distilled it into a presentable format that will have great utility from the classroom to the boardroom. The balancing and integration of subjects that impact public and private sector organizations as well as academia provide the instructor and student with a unique text that will also serve as a ready reference long after the class has concluded."
