Introduction to Homeland Security has set the standard for security textbooks, expertly delineating the bedrock principles of preparing for, mitigating, managing, and recovering from emergencies and disasters. Though endowed with similar foundational marrow as its parent volume, this concise version emphasizes its value with improved clarity and focus. A more engaging and  visual presentation and incisive structure are combined with richer narrative content to dramatize the issues being addressed. What's more, the text still retains its ample full-color illustrations, but in a streamlined and more affordable paperback format.

This compact version also contains more case studies to enliven research-based data points. Additionally, links to the most current online government information help to keep material up-to-date in this rapidly evolving field. New content includes: structural alterations to the Department of Homeland Security; strategic changes that that have occurred as a result of the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review; updated budgetary information on federal and private homeland security programs; and changes in the way the public perceives and receives information about security risk.
