Promotional Information

After 9/11, U.S. border security priorities for land, sea, and air ports of entry were transformed, bringing a tidal wave of policy change. Yet, almost a decade after the pivotal terrorist attacks, is there solid proof that these measures have been effective, and are the purported benefits to our national security worth the financial and human costs?

"... this handbook on border security was a timely release in the 2010 election year, and will continue to be valuable. ... This useful compendium fills a gap on the reference shelf. The glossary and index are both helpful, but each would benefit from cross-references. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates; general readers." - Choice
