Description

While other texts on Homeland Security tend to focus on post-911 terrorism or natural disasters from Hurricane Katrina on, Threats to Homeland Security, Second Edition examines the foundations of today's security environment, from broader national security perspectives to specific homeland security interests and concerns, such as: What do we protect? How do we protect it? And what do we protect it from? In addition, threats are examined from both an international perspective (state vs non-state actors, and kinds of threat capabilities, from cyber-terrorism to weapons of mass destruction) and from a national perspective (sources of domestic terrorism and future technological challenges, due to globalization and an increasingly interconnected world).

The second edition of the text not only updates previous chapters, but provides new chapters which focus on the new threats to homeland security today, such as the growing nexus between crime and terrorism, domestic and international intelligence collection, critical infrastructure and technology, cyber security as well as the need to reassess the all-hazards dimension of homeland security from a resource and management perspective.
