About Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Second Edition

This book provides practical insight and guidance to help governments and their counsel protect lives, property, public safety, and the public welfare in accordance with law and the Constitution.

The book is divided into three parts:
  • Part 1: Federalism, Open Government, and the Role of the Military - deals with generic issues of governance that are of particular importance to homeland security and emergency management.
  • Part II: Prevention and Mitigation - addresses issues critical to preventing, mitigating, and preparing for terrorist attacks and natural disasters.
  • Part III: Preparedness and Response - addresses issues encountered when preparing for and coping with a catastrophic event. An attorney's success in representing a jurisdiction as it responds to and recovers from a terrorist attack or natural catastrophe will largely depend on actions taken in advance of the event.
The book ends with a substantially updated and expanded checklist of legal issues that local government attorneys must deal with in times of disaster.

BONUS: A CD-ROM includes important federal statutes, select chapters from the first edition, and a detailed report on substantive issues raised in a 2009 Legal Table Top Exercise.
