|Summary, etc.:||This book concisely outlines the risks facing the United States today and describes the structures that have been put in place to deal with them. The authors delineate the bedrock principles of preparing for, mitigating, managing, and recovering from emergencies and disasters. From cyber warfare to devastating tornados to car bombs, many hazards currently fall within the purview of the Department of Homeland Security. Yet the federal response to these events must be closely aligned with the work of partners in the private sector, and the authors examine the challenges involved in these collaborative efforts.|
