Author(s): LeMay, Michael;
Contributors: LeMay, Michael;
Abstract:

This book provides a comprehensive summary of the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and efforts to protect the United States from international terrorism.


• Provides readers with an objective, nonpartisan perspective on the complexity of enacting and implementing homeland security policy so that readers may better understand how difficult it is to combat terrorism

• Illuminates how "lone-wolf" terrorists become radicalized and why they are so difficult for the government to protect against

• Suggests more than a dozen proposed solutions to the vexing problems associated with protecting the United States from international terrorism

• Details how immigration and homeland security are inherently related, and why Arab- and Muslim-American minorities suffer the brunt of the negative effects of the nation's border security crackdown

• Explains why unauthorized immigration from Mexico and Central America has risen exponentially since 1970 and why policy to deal with illegal immigration poses such a conundrum
