Praise for Introduction to Homeland Security edited by Keith Gregory Logan and James D. Ramsay "Introduction to Homeland Security provides a unique and practical insight into the strategies, resources, organization and administration of homeland security. Homeland security, public administration, and security students and professionals will find this an essential resource that they will refer to again and again. The book outlines the creation and development of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) following the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, covering its history, organization, programs and policies. This book provides the latest information on a broad array of topics in homeland security including strategic communication, law and policy, emergency management, technology, intelligence, terrorism and counter terrorism, and education." -Linda Kiltz, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Public Administration, Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi "Introduction to Homeland Security comes at a critical time in the maturation of the broader academic discipline. Logan and Ramsay have collected the most significant thinkers in homeland security education to provide an updated framework-perhaps, 'Homeland Security 3.0'-for understanding the multidisciplinary nature of the enterprise for practitioners, faculty, and serious students. Introduction to Homeland Security is the text that I will use for graduate courses, and will strongly recommend to faculty at our partner institutions." -Steve Recca, Naval Postgraduate School "The editors of this text, Logan and Ramsay, have assembled an outstanding compilation of chapters ranging from the organization and administration of homeland security to examining both homeland security resources, as well as strategies, the latter of which is discussed in some detail. The information contained in this text is timely and comprehensive; it is an outstanding textbook for instructors teaching in this new, evolving discipline." -Michelle E. Majewski, Marian University
