How to Think about Homeland Security: The Imperfect Intersection of National Security and Public Safety


Add your own review!

Overview

Volume 1: The Imperfect Intersection of National Security and Public Safety explains homeland security as a struggle to meet new national security threats with traditional public safety practitioners. It offers a new solution that reaches beyond training and equipment to change practitioner culture through education. This first volume represents a major new contribution to the literature by recognizing that homeland security is not based on theories of nuclear response or countering terrorism, but on making bureaucracy work. The next evolution in improving homeland security is to analyze and evaluate various theories of bureaucratic change against the national-level catastrophic threats we are most likely to face. This synthesis provides the bridge between volume 1 (understanding homeland security) and the next in the series (understanding the risk and threats to domestic security). All four volumes could be used in an introductory course at the graduate or undergraduate level. Volumes 2 and 3 are most likely to be adopted in a risk management (RM) course which generally focus on threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences, while volume 4 will get picked up in courses on emergency management (EM).

Reviews

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 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 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 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
