It seeks to inform the current discussion of the proposed Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through a better understanding of past efforts at executive reorganization and by identifying patterns that recur over time. This historical approach also identifies distinctions between the Homeland Security plan and past instances of reorganization. In short, it is the objective of this report to place what President George W. Bush has called "the most extensive reorganization of the Federal government since the 1940s" in historical context. We believe that a better grasp of history will allow participants in the debate to formulate a set of questions that engage past experience and expand the nation's ability to plan for a future that nobody can predict with any degree of certainty.
