Introduction to Homeland Security

 
9780124158023: Introduction to Homeland Security

Bullock, Haddow, and Coppola have set the standard for homeland security textbooks, and they follow up their #1-selling third edition with this substantially improved version. Students will value the decades of experience that the authors bring to their analysis, and the new edition offers still more research-based data to balance the field-tested practical information included in each chapter. Additionally, links to the most current online government information help to keep the text up-to-date in this rapidly developing field. As with its predecessors, the book clearly delineates the bedrock principles of preparing for, mitigating, managing, and recovering from emergencies and disasters. However, this new edition emphasizes their value with improved clarity and focus. NEW TO THIS EDITION: This edition has been thoroughly revised to include changes that are based both on changes relevant to the political, budgetary, and legal aspects of homeland security that have changed since the 2008 Presidential election (and subsequent change in the administration), but also in recognition of an expanding academic demand that is both larger in size and changing in scope (most notably with regard to an increase in the number of government employees and officials who are taking courses that have adopted the text). These include: an expansion of material on the organization of the Department of Homeland Security; strategic and philosophical changes that are recommended and/or that have occurred as a result of the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review completed in 2010; updated budgetary information on both homeland security programs and on the homeland security grants that have supported safety and security actions at the state and local levels, as well as in the private sector; and changes in the way the public perceives and receives information about security risk, including the possible elimination of the Homeland Security Advisory System. ANCILLARIES: A companion website includes a full online Instructor's Guide (complete with chapter summaries and a test bank that contains approximately 20 multiple-choice question, 20 true-or-false questions, and 5 essay questions per chapter) as well as PowerPoint slides. * New chapters that focuses specifically on border and transportation security missions* An increased focus on cyber security and infrastructure security, both of which are rapidly growing in importance in the homeland security field among officials at all levels* A companion website that includes a full online Instructor's Guide and PowerPoint lecture slides

Product Description:

Bullock, Haddow, and Coppola have set the standard for homeland security textbooks, and they follow up best-selling third edition with this substantially improved version. As with its predecessor, the book clearly delineates the bedrock principles of preparing for, mitigating, managing, and recovering from emergencies and disasters. However, this new edition emphasizes their value with improved clarity and focus. What's more, it has been thoroughly revised to include changes that are based on transformations relevant to the political, budgetary, and legal aspects of homeland security that have changed since the 2008 Presidential election (and subsequent change in the administration). These include: new chapters on intelligence and counterterrorism, border security, transportation security, and cybersecurity; an expansion of material on the organization of the Department of Homeland Security; strategic and philosophical changes that are recommended and/or that have occurred as a result of the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review completed in 2010; updated budgetary information on both homeland security programs, and on the homeland security grants that have supported safety and security actions at the state and local levels, as well as in the private sector; and changes in the way the public perceives and receives information about security risk, including the possible elimination of the Homeland Security Advisory System. * New chapter that focuses specifically on the border and transportation security missions * An increased focus on cyber security and infrastructure security, both of which are rapidly growing in importance in the homeland security field among officials at all levels * A companion website that includes a full online Instructor's Guide, Student Test Bank, PowerPoint Lecture Slides, Blackboard Modules, and streaming video

Review:

"The book doesn't shy away from the controversial choices that have been made in the creation of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, nor from the tensions that arise from the DHS emphasis on dealing with terrorism against its responsibilities for handling hazards and disasters. It also has some handy data references."--Natural Hazards Observer, November 2013
