This is a timely, thought-provoking collection of essays from homeland security and terrorism experts. Defense of the American homeland is the primary responsibility of the federal government; it forms the core of its national security strategy. And while many steps have been taken since 9/11 to secure our borders, much remains to be done. The latest in the "Homeland Security" series, "Homeland Security and Terrorism" is a comprehensive collection of essays and articles by government, military, and business experts examining the key challenges in readying the United States, its infrastructure, and its citizens for the eventuality of another attack.Featuring contributions by Brian Michael Jenkins, Frank Keating, Amanda J. Dory, John P. Sullivan, Major Reid L.Sawyer, and numerous others, this volume addresses: the current ability of national, state, and local agencies to respond to terrorism; tensions encountered in maintaining personal freedoms while providing adequate protection against future attacks; lessons from past emergencies, such as the Northeast blackout and the SARS crisis, that can help the public prepare for and mitigate possible terrorist events; specific areas that are vulnerable to terrorism; and changing relationships and responsibilities among government, civil society, and private business enterprise.
