Bullock and Haddow have set the standard for homeland security textbooks, and they follow up their top-selling second edition with this substantially improved third edition. Professional practitioners value the decades of experience that the authors bring to their analysis, and their passionate argument for an all-hazards approach to enhancing America's safety is now presented still more cogently.

Links to the most current online government information help to keep the text up-to-date in this rapidly developing field.

The bedrock principles of preparing for, mitigating, managing, and recovering from a disaster remain the same through the years, and this revision emphasizes their value with new clarity and conviction.

NEW TO THIS EDITION: * New chapter on the future of homeland security * Updates include developments since 2006, such as the shift from DHS to HHS of National Disaster Medical System * Slideshow of key moments in American homeland security, including 9/11 and Katrina
