Introduction to Homeland Security (3rd ed.)

Principles of All-Hazards Risk Management

by Jane A. Bullock, George D. Haddow, Damon P. Coppola

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.
