Homeland security : assessing the first five years by Michael Chertoff ( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 2003, the President and the U.S. Congress established the Department of Homeland Security. From the beginning, its mission was clear: prevent terrorist attacks, protect against threats to America's safety and security, and prepare the nation to respond effectively to disasters, both natural and man-made. This monumental mission demands a comprehensive strategy. It also requires a crystal-clear explanation of that strategy to Americans and their allies worldwide. In a revealing new book, Homeland Security: Assessing the First Five Years, Michael Chertoff provides that explanation. In a refreshingly candid and engaging manner, America's former homeland security secretary depicts the department's long-term approach, what it has achieved, and what it has yet to do."--BOOK JACKET

Confronting Biological Threats to the Homeland ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
One of the most important priorities for any government is to protect society from lethal threats. Part of that mission necessarily involves guarding against the havoc that biological forces are capable of wreaking on any population. Such forces can come in the form of pandemics or very serious epidemics-deadly communicable diseases that can ravage communities and potentially threaten the fabric of society. While such diseases have surfaced throughout history in discrete areas of the world, the interdependent, global nature of today's world can facilitate their rapid spread across oceans and continents. This naturally occurring peril is compounded by the fact that the modern wonders of science and technology enable dangerous individuals and groups to harness these potent biological forces, turning them into actual weapons of mass destruction. While such natural threats as pandemic influenza have yet to reach fully efficient human-to-human transmission, our post-9/11 society faces a more immediate, manmade threat from individuals seeking to unleash destruction. In the wake of 9/11, we saw anthrax attacks at home, and we have since seen ricin attacks in other parts of the world. In response to these dangers, we have taken a number of steps to help mitigate at least some of the risk. And we have begun to think seriously and in a disciplined fashion about how to plan for dealing with a major natural pandemic or biological attack. The challenge is to act decisively and effectively to minimize damage in an environment in which there will be imperfect information and potentially hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of lives lost. The key to meeting the challenge is to approach it in a systematic, comprehensive way. We must fully examine the biological threats we face, address the capabilities we must continue to build in order to mitigate them, and consider the complex legal and ethical issues that will arise during a biological calamity if ever we have one

The state of U.S. homeland security by Michael Chertoff ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"In three months we will mark the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. While a good deal has been accomplished to protect the country since, much still needs to be done. Policymakers and observers argue the nation must not lose its sense of urgency on homeland security. But what is the state of U.S. homeland security? And with the arrival of hurricane season, how well prepared is the U.S. for coping with the challenge of natural disasters that could afflict the nation? On June 1, Brookings convened a discussion to examine these questions and the overall state of American homeland security with a keynote address by Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. A panel discussion featured a group of leading experts, including three of the coauthors of the new Brookings book, Protecting the Homeland 2006/2007: Michael O'Hanlon, senior fellow, Brookings; Jeremy Shapiro, director of research, Center on the United States and Europe (CUSE), Brookings; and Michael B. d'Arcy, a nonresident technology fellow at Brookings. Richard Falkenrath, a Brookings senior fellow and former deputy homeland security advisor to President George W. Bush moderated the discussion. The panel was followed by remarks from Secretary Chertoff. Secretary Chertoff formerly served as United States circuit judge for the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and as an assistant attorney general, where he helped trace the 9/11 terrorist attacks to the al-Qaida network, and worked to increase information sharing within the FBI and with state and local officials."--Publisher's description of the meeting, in its website (viewed October 2, 2013)
