The edge of disaster : rebuilding a resilient nation by Stephen E Flynn( Book )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,056 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Americans have been shocked in the past few years to discover how vulnerable our nation is to disaster, be it terrorist attack or act of God. But what's truly shocking, argues leading security expert Stephen Flynn, is how little we have learned from the cataclysms of September 11 and Hurricane Katrina. When it comes to catastrophe, America is living on borrowed time-and squandering it. In this eye-opening, vitally important new book, Flynn issues an overdue wake-up call demanding that we shake off our denial and sense of helplessness and start preparing immediately for a safer future
America the vulnerable : how our government is failing to protect us from terrorism by Stephen E Flynn( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 917 libraries worldwide
Three years after September 11, we are still dangerously unprepared to prevent or respond to another attack on American soil. Despite increased awareness, we still offer our enemies a vast menu of soft targets, and small improvements are often oversold as giant steps forward, building an unwarranted sense of confidence. In this call to action, Flynn offers a portrait of the shortcomings in America's current plan for homeland security. He describes a frightening scenario of what the next major terrorist attack might look like, revealing the tragic loss of life and economic havoc it would leave in its wake, as well as the seismic political consequences it would have in Washington. Flynn outlines a practical plan for achieving security in a way that is safe and smart, effective and manageable.--From publisher description

Although a number of measures to respond to the risk of terrorism have been taken since September 11, 2001, America is still dangerously unprepared for a catastrophic attack on U.S. soil.

U.S. support of Plan Colombia : rethinking the ends and means by Stephen E Flynn( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
The author argues that the U.S. emphasis on drug control in its support of Plan Colombia is misguided and akin to prescribing an antibiotic regime to combat a disease not caused by bacteria or similar micro-organisms. The illegal drug industry in Colombia is not the cause of that country s fragile socio-political system, but a symptom of and a contributor to the fragility of the Colombian state. Continuing the analogy, Flynn argues that U.S. and Colombian emphasis on combating illicit drug cultivation and trafficking leads to several undesirable side effects

"When a Dubai company was given the rights to operate facilities at six American seaports, it touched off a firestorm of debate in Congress. But thismay be the least of the problems America faces on its waterfront. U.S. Customs can only inspect a very small percentage of the six million cargo containers that come into the U.S. each year. Some experts fear that the most likely way a nuclear device or dirty bomb could come into this country would be through our seaports."--Container
Navigating the uncertain waters of the 21st century : the role of new technologies in building a competitive and secure maritime infrastructure by Stephen E Flynn( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
America's waterways are a critical elelment of the national transportation infrastructure. Managing the safety, environmental protection, border control and security of our nation's waterways in an efficient and profitable manner is becoming a daunting task. Responding to this challenge must be done against a backdrop of extraordinary technological development, particularly in the area of radio navigation and information systems. There is a pressing need for a national and international dialog on how the revolution in navigation and information systems will affect the maritime backbone of an increasingly global economy. To promote this dialong, The Institute of Navigation (ION), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) Center for Advanced Studies sponsored a one day workshop on May 22, 1998 in Washington, D.C. ... This paper summarized the presentations from that conference and details the conference results. In addition, a plan of action that advances the institute's role in sustaining an ongoing conversation between policy-makers and technology users to ensure that our intermodal transportation system can adapt to the uncertainties of the next century is presented
