Students and practitioners of Homeland Security have generally not looked beyond U.S. borders in terms of searching for solutions to existing H.S. policy problems. Comparative International Homeland Security: Lessons for the United States examines overseas homeland security practices, allowing readers to integrate security practices from around the world into our own policies. The book covers strategies and tactics to combat terrorism from a number of the worlds democracies. Organized topically, the book allows scientists, engineers, policymakers, law enforcement professionals, and government workers to easily compare and integrate the concepts presented into practice.
