Summary

"Introduction to Homeland Security was the first book to provide practitioners, educators, and students with a comprehensive account of the original and ongoing developments in the Department of Homeland Security's organization, as well as the practices, policies and programs enacted in relation to the government restructure. Focusing on legislation, government organization, communications, technology, and emergency practices, the Second Edition continues to prove the standard in providing the latest information developments on contemporary national security events as they relate to the Department of Homeland Security." "Completely revised and updated, the Second Edition contains a summary of the new departments that now fall under DHS, the continuing debate over the Patriot Act, the impact of the addition of a National Intelligence Director, the passing of the Maritime Transportation Security Act, international efforts to secure borders, and the 9/11 Commission recommendations. The book also includes a revised chapter on the future of Homeland Security which addresses the role of FEMA and the importance of emergency management to Homeland Security. Additional resources provided in the Appendices include an updated list of Web sites for additional information, as well as contact information for Homeland Security offices and officials." "Introduction to Homeland Security, Second Edition is an essential text for professionals and students alike. With clearly organized content, full color throughout, and pedagogical elements including objectives, definitions, and case studies, this book serves as both an effective teaching tool and a valuable reference guide."--BOOK JACKET.
