9781589794856: Deadly Indifference: The Perfect (Political) Storm: Hurricane Katrina, The Bush White House, and Beyond

At last, former Under Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Brown—infamously praised by President George W. Bush for doing a "heckuva job" in the wake of Hurricane Katrina—tells his side of the response to one of the greatest natural disasters to occur in the United States. Without making excuses for anyone, least of all the President of the United States or himself, Brown describes in detail what ultimately turned out to be the largest federal response to a natural disaster in U.S. history.

About the Author:

Michael D. Brown was Under Secretary of Homeland Security in the administration of President George W. Bush. A consultant and radio talk show host, he lives in Boulder, Colorado.

Ted Schwarz is the author of over 100 books, several of them bestsellers. He lives in Cleveland, Ohio.

Review:

And if you're shaking your head that Michael “FEMA” Brown would actually have the temerity or boneheadedness to write a Katrina book called Deadly Indifference, you don't know Brownie. (BlogOfNewOrleans.com)

An excellent additional perspective on the disaster of Katrina, and a critical examination of bungled disaster management. (Midwest Book Review)
