From the Back Cover:

The most authoritative, comprehensive homeland security reference ever compiled

The McGraw-Hill Homeland Security Handbook is the first all-inclusive reference to provide a fundamental understanding of critical homeland security issues now faced by the United States. More than seventy articles written by leaders in every area of U.S. life, from senators to captains of industry to key figures in intelligence, military and academia, combine expert insights with prescriptive strategies and guidance to help security professionals more effectively manage the risk of terrorism.

The handbook addresses virtually every aspect of homeland security, including:

  • the threat of terrorism motivated by radical Islamist fundamentalism
  • protection of borders, transportation, infrastructure, and cyberspace
  • the roles of business, academia, science, and the private sector in confronting terrorism

The McGraw-Hill Homeland Security Handbook explores the latest knowledge with unmatched scope and detail, and discusses what government, business, and individual citizens must do to safeguard America's borders in the face of the evolving threat.

The McGraw-Hill Homeland Security Handbook provides government officials, corporate risk and security executives, first responders, university students, and all homeland security and emergency preparedness professionals with a wide-ranging and definitive overview of our nation's critical homeland security issues. This comprehensive all-in-one reference features analyses, insights, and practical recommendations from frontline security experts. Thirteen sections cover:

  1. Al-Qaeda and Global Jihad--Studying al-Qaeda's goals, strategies, and motivational power, with a detailed look into Islamist terrorist networks
  2. Terrorism Beyond al-Qaeda--Understanding terrorist threats, psychology, and counterterrorism methodologies
  3. Governmental and Inter-Governmental Aspects of Homeland Security--Enhancing the partnership between local, state, and federal governments
  4. Counterterrorism Intelligence and Analysis--Stressing the need for accurate intelligence, with details on the information-gathering agencies
  5. Risk: Management, Perception and Communication--Developing risk management approach that maximizes impact while minimizing exposure of critical assets and citizens
  6. Securing Critical Infrastructure and Cyberspace--Safeguarding America's critical infrastructure and essential digital systems and technologies
  7. Border and Transportation Security--Reviewing immigration, maritime, and aviation security, both before and after the 2001 attacks
  8. Emergency Management, Public Health, and Medical Preparedness--Discussing roles of first responders, with strategies for developing a proactive "disaster culture"
  9. Role of the Private Sector--Presenting methods for small and large businesses to take responsibility for their own security, including public-private partnerships
  10. Academe--Recognizing roles and responsibilities of academic institutions as a target of terrorism, resource for terrorists, and well as a source of counterterrorist solutions
  11. Science, Technology, and Information Sharing--Realizing the uses of technology and innovation in combating terrorist threats
  12. Domestic Counterterrorism and Civil Liberties--Crafting strategies for combining tightened security with continued liberty
  13. Politics and Accountability--Acknowledging political questions regarding values, principles, doctrine, the distribution of power, and historic constitutional challenges

While the center of gravity of homeland security is domestic and defensive, the counterterrorism arena of battle has become global. The McGraw-Hill Homeland Security Handbook explores the challenge of securing terrorists ruthlessly devoted to destroying our country and our culture.
