Emergency responders-- drastically underfunded, dangerously unprepared report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations ( file )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 438 libraries worldwide
"Two years after September 11, 2001, the United States is drastically underfunding local emergency responders and remains dangerously unprepared to handle an attack on American soil, particularly one involving chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or catastrophic conventional weapons. If the United States does not take immediate steps to better identify and address the urgent needs of emergency responders, the next terrorist incident could be even more devastating than those of September 11." "The Council-sponsored Independent Task Force on Emergency Responders met with emergency responder organizations across the country to assess what would be required to achieve a minimum effective response to a catastrophic terrorist attack. The presently unbudgeted needs total $98.4 billion over the next five years, according to the emergency responder communities and budget experts. Although the Task Force argues that additional funding for emergency responders is urgently needed, the report also stresses the importance of developing national preparedness standards to ensure the most efficient and effective use of limited resources." "The Task Force credits the Bush administration, Congress, governors, and mayors with taking important steps since September 11 to respond to the risk of catastrophic terrorism. It does not seek to apportion blame for what has not been done or not been done quickly enough. Rather, the report is aimed at closing the gap between current levels of emergency preparedness and minimum essential preparedness levels across the United States."--BOOK JACKET

Western responses to human rights abuses in Cambodia, 1975-80 by Jamie Frederic Metzl( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
This study examines Western responses to human rights abuses in Cambodia between 1975 and 1980, years which included the murderous rule of the Khmer Rouge regime, a Vietnamese invasion, a civil war, and a famine. The author looks at the responses of Western populations, concerned academics and intellectuals, international human rights agencies, Western governments, and the United Nations, and how these responses changed over time. The choice made by these states was manifest in Western policies towards the Cambodian refugee crisis and famine and in numerous United Nations fora. The implications of that choice laid the groundwork for the thirteen years of civil war which followed the invasion
Genesis code : a thriller of the near future by Jamie Frederic Metzl( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Blue Magic, the latest designer drug linked to a rash of overdoses, might explain the needle mark on the arm of a young woman found dead in her Kansas City apartment. But when Star reporter Rich Azadian digs deeper, the clues point to a far more explosive story: MaryLee Stock was a special prote;ge;e of evangelical megapastor and power broker Cobalt Becker, who is poised to deliver his followers and the presidency to a firebrand right-wing senator in the next election. When Azadian sets out to prove that MaryLee's death was no accident and she may have been carrying Becker's genetically enhanced baby, the stakes become life itself. In 2023 America-bankrupt, violently divided by the culture wars, and beholden to archrival China-the rules of the game are complicated. With the danger mounting, the dead bodies of young women piling up, Chinese agents circling, and the US Department of National Competitiveness moving in to quash his investigation, Azadian's only option is to go rogue, assemble a team of brilliant misfits like himself, and begin the fight of his life to find out who is killing these women and why, and if any others like them may still be alive.
