Homeland Security : What Is It and Where Are We Going? Hardback



With the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 now behind us, one critical question persists.

Have policies enacted to protect us from terrorist attacks actually made us safer, or have they merely mollified the concerned public with a false sense of security?

Homeland Security: What Is It and Where We Are Going combines professional experiences, personal reflections, and academic scholarship to provide a realistic assessment of current policy effectiveness. Amos Guiora’s background makes him uniquely qualified to address this issue.

He was the Judge Advocate for the Israel Defense Forces Home Front Command and the legal advisor to a congressionally mandated task force charged with creating America’s homeland security strategy under the auspices of the Committee on Homeland Security.

This volume: Provides perspectives from a broad array of individuals involved in homeland securitySuggests ways to prioritize limited resourcesDemonstrates the lack of universal consensus regarding the definitions of homeland security and offers insight into what should be the predominant considerationsSuggests solutions to a wide variety of dilemmas, including terror financing, cost-benefit analysis of homeland security, international cooperation/intelligence sharing, business continuity, and immigration/narco terrorismWritten in an engaging manner suitable for policy makers, academics, and the general public alike, the book presents examples from the United States and Israel, offering concrete recommendations for the articulation, development, and implementation of effective homeland security strategy.
