How to Think about Homeland Security: Risk, Threats, and the New Normal


Add your own review!

Overview

Risk, Threats and the New Normal explains the new political and technological developments that created new domestic national security threats against the nation and the people of the United States.The book traces the development of and competition between national preparedness (focused on people and property), and civil defense / security (focused on the defense of systems and infrastructure) since the latter days of World War I. While Homeland Security was created to meet national security threats in the domestic arena, most of the duties have devolved to public safety personnel and organizations. The result is a clash of cultures, jurisdictions, and perspectives that produces less than optimal results from the many bureaucracies involved. The second of four volumes in McIntyre's How to Think About Homeland Security series offers suggestions for how these issues might be addressed by Homeland Security.

Reviews

A retired colonel in the US Army, McIntyre (now, Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M Univ.) wrote How to Think about Homeland Security to educate future homeland security professionals on how terrorists wielding new and lethal technologies could decimate the US. His intent is not to break new ground; rather, it is to introduce those willing to indulge this grisly mindset to the concepts and vocabulary of risk and threat assessment. The first of the set's two volumes is subtitled The Imperfect Intersection of National Security and Public Safety. The chapters in volume 2 introduce basic concepts (part 1); provide a clear but terse summary of the strategy of successive presidents to guard against doomsday (part 2); and present new threats that terrorists can use to disrupt or destroy the basic infrastructure of US society (part 3). Summing Up: Recommended. . . Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, students in technical programs, professionals.--CHOICE
