Readers need to be aware more than ever before of the increased number of threats this country faces. Introduction to Homeland Security: Understanding Terrorism with an Emergency Management Perspective provides important and up-to-date information about terrorism, terrorist behavior, homeland security policies and dilemmas, and how to deal effectively with threats and the consequences of attacks. This book provides a foundation that spans the readily apparent chasm between the disaster and homeland security communities. Its focus on terrorism may help to educate those who do not yet understand the need to prepare for this significant threat. Its concentration on emergency management will remind homeland security officials that reinventing of the wheel is not only unnecessary, but problematic. Introduction to Homeland Security will be useful to scholars, students, and practitioners interested or involved in homeland security and emergency management.

This book includes the proceedings of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) 2008 Advanced Research Workshop (ARW). The goal of the meeting was to explore methods to involve the community in the fight against terrorism in an effort to enhance its protection from terrorist attacks and to establish a network between the participants for future collaborations. The two main topics of this book are: (1) Defining the problem of terrorism and collective community protection; why does terrorism exists and why do people join and/or support extremist groups? (2) Counter-terrorism practices and their relation to the community; focused on developing non-orthodox methods to combat terrorism. In other words, why communities should be included in the fight against terrorism. This book should be seen as a guide for policy makers and practitioners to gain a better understanding of how counter terrorism, as well as many other applications, requires community support and involvement to the fullest extent possible. Because the existing threat of terrorism is proof of the failed classical militaristic approaches, the time has come to integrate our communities into the practice of fighting the threat together.

While the job of a clinician in a disaster scenario is to save lives without regard for the cause or rationale for the injury, medical and emergency professionals who understand the diverse aspects of a disaster are better equipped to respond effectively. Giving emergency personnel the tools they need to perform in catastrophic situations, Medical Disaster Response: A Survival Guide for Hospitals in Mass Casualty Events addresses the critical planning and response issues surrounding a mass casualty disaster before, during, and after the event. The book presents the fundamental components of a comprehensive medical disaster management plan that provides readers with a framework for developing individual policies to suit their particular institution. It examines natural, man-made, and terrorist disasters, and offers insight into the different strategies required for distinct scenarios, as well as the need to be prepared for the cascade effect of secondary events resulting from the original disaster. Real case studies examining medical disaster response This volume provides a powerful and unique case example through a chronology of the events of September 11th, offering a firsthand account and insight into the quintessential test case for disaster response effectiveness. It also profiles other notorious events—including Hurricane Katrina, the Madrid bombings, the SARS outbreak in 2004, and the sarin gas attack in Tokyo in 2005—as seen through the eyes of the expert contributors who witnessed and responded to these tragedies. The book presents the lessons learned from these events by the contributing authors who acted on the front lines of the medical disaster response. It is a valuable reference manual for emergency planning, response, and healthcare professionals to confront future disasters and help prevent and mitigate destruction and unnecessary casualties.

Although violent extremism is not a new phenomenon, it is increasingly recognized as a major challenge of our times. The recruitment of foreign fighters by extremist organizations, and its potential impact on public safety in the countries from which they come, is also emerging as a complex issue at the forefront of international preoccupations. This book presents the proceedings of the three day NATO Advanced Research Workshop, "Countering Violent Extremism Among Youth to Prevent Terrorism", held in Milan, Italy, in June 2014. The best way to respond to violent extremism in general, and the radicalization of disaffected youth in particular, is far from clear, but the stakes are so high and the potential threat to countries worldwide so great that inaction is not an option. The goal of the workshop was to enhance the capacity of policymakers and practitioners to design strategies that will achieve verifiable human-rights based outcomes to counter violent extremism. Subjects covered in the 19 papers which go to make up this book include: the causes or drivers of violent extremism; the factors which facilitate the recruitment of youth by violent extremist groups; the risk of growing Islamophobia in some Western and Central European countries; and proactive measures to counter the radicalization of youth. The book will be of interest to all those involved in policy development, prevention programs, de-radicalization programs or research aimed at countering violent extremism and the radicalization of young people.

This volume provides an overview of intervention and management strategies for dealing with terrorist and extremist offenders in prisons. The management of terrorist and extremist prisoners has long been recognised as a difficult problem in prisons. In most countries, such offenders are relatively rare, but when their numbers increase these prisoners can undermine the effectiveness and safety of the prison system. At a global level there is an increasing recognition of the problem of militant jihadi extremists in prison and their ability to recruit new members among other prisoners. The numbers of such prisoners are low but growing and, as a result, prisons are becoming centres of radicalisation; indeed, in some cases, terrorist plots appear to have been based entirely on networks that were radicalised in prison. This volume presents an expertly informed assessment of what we know about terrorists, extremists and prison, exploring the experience of a wide range of countries and of different political movements. Drawing critical lessons from historical case studies, the book examines critical issues around management strategies, radicalisation and deradicalisation, reform, risk assessment, as well as post-release experiences. The role that prisoners play in the conflicts beyond the jail walls is also examined, with case studies illustrating how prisoners can play a critical role in bringing about a peace process or alternatively in sustaining or even escalating campaigns of violence. Written by leading experts in the field, this volume will be of much interest to students of terrorism/counter-terrorism, criminology, security studies and IR in general.

<B>Diese Arbeit wurde mit dem <I>Wissenschaftspreis der ITB ausgezeichnet.<BR> Fur den Tourismusbereich hat das Krisenmanagement inzwischen fundamentale Bedeutung. Kaum eine Organisation kann es sich noch leisten, sich einer intensiven und fruhzeitigen Auseinandersetzung mit Krisen zu entziehen. <BR> Mit dieser Arbeit werden zum ersten Mal die zugrunde liegenden Zusammenhange in ihrer Breite dargestellt und die Wirkungsprozesse negativer Ereignisse unter Anwendung der Systemtheorie umfassend analysiert. Konsequenzen, die sich daraus fur die verschiedenen Wettbewerbsstrategien ergeben, werden genauso untersucht, wie den Notwendigkeiten und Moglichkeiten des praventiven Krisenmanagements nachgegangen wird. Weitere Schwerpunkte der Arbeit liegen bei der Darstellung von Gestaltungsmoglichkeiten der Fruhaufklarung, den Strategien zur Krisenhandhabung und der umfassenden Beurteilung der Einsatzmoglichkeiten des Marketinginstrumentariums. Das Ergebnis ist ein umfassender marketingorientierter Ansatz des Krisenmanagements fur den Tourismusbereich, welcher nicht nur helfen soll, die Vorgange besser zu begreifen, sondern zukunftig auch die richtigen Vorsorgemassnahmen zu treffen."

Nach jahrelangen Recherchen über die internationalen Drogenkartelle und ihren Einfluß auf die Weltpolitik hat der Enthüllungsjournalist und Sachbuchautor David A. Yallop (»Im Namen Gottes?«) sich nicht ohne Grund entschieden, zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben einen Roman zu schreiben ...Einen Roman über einen Präsidentschaftswahlkampf in den USA, etwa im Jahr 2000 oder 2004, bei dem der voraussichtliche Sieger nicht der Kandidat der Parteien, sondern der Kandidat des Kartells ist. Der Roman besitzt eine atemberaubende Spannung, aber nicht nur, weil David A. Yallop sich als ein meisterhafter Thriller-Autor entpuppt – das höchst beunruhigende Szenario der Machtergreifung, das der Autor hier entwirft, enthält einfach zu viel Plausibilität, um als reine Erfindung abgetan werden zu können ...
