Terrorism: Are We Ready?

Front Cover
Nova Publishers, 2002 - 224 pages
This book presents articles, analyses and Congressional testimony which has been carefully edited, excerpted and indexed with regard to actual and potential terrorist attacks. Excerpts are also presented from reports issued well before 11 September 2001 which predicted the country's vulnerability and which were promptly buried in the graveyard of unread and unacted-upon reports. Questions are raised whether the dozens of federal agencies charged with aspects of homeland security can ever be co-ordinated by anyone without seriously reshuffling various government agencies which may turn out to be more difficult than eliminating terrorism.
