"Protecting the Homeland 2006/2007 reviews the current state of homeland security, assesses America's remaining vulnerabilities, and suggests new policies to improve security in the United States. It presents specific recommendations for reforming intelligence; fostering international cooperation; increasing infrastructure and border protection; developing technology; and formulating countermeasures against specific types of aggression. Written with a sense of urgency, the book warns that while Americans can feel somewhat safer today than they did in 2001, much more needs to be done in improving the nation's defenses against terrorism."--Jacket.
