Reviews

McIntyre's How to Think About Homeland Security is an interesting and concise effort to embody the goal described in the title. The book is intended to help refine--and redefine--the manner in which academics and practitioners view the underpinnings of homeland security. --Tobias Gibson, Westminster College Scholarly and compelling...A great resource for policy examination, review, and citations--John G. Comiskey, Monmouth University This book provides great insights while remaining imminently readable. Having heard Dr. McIntyre speak on a number of occasions, I took pleasure in noting the preservation of his same conversational tone in his writing. A security practitioner for half of his adult life, what is occasionally described as 'pracademic' attitudes enrich his teaching, and in this case, his writing. The book 'speaks' to the reader, which--from another 'pracademic'--is very deliberate praise. --Bert B. Tussing, U.S. Army War College Though I am not the historian Dr. McIntyre is, I am well-versed in national strategy both academically and in actual execution. This book is the best distillation of the history, evolution, and practice of national strategy and its transition/application to homeland security that I have read.... It should be required reading for every official in DHS, and every new recruit or hire into the organization. --W. Michael Dunaway, University of Lousiana at Lafayette You need to read this book now. Send it forward to policymakers, practitioners, and educators. This is a must-read for our profession.--Steve Recca, Naval Postgraduate School
