Editorial Reviews

"In this new, incisive, informative book, Dr. Chouraeshkenazi helps undergraduate and graduate students understand how the nation's homeland security and defense are intertwined, and she provides readers with the framework to identify not just the challenges the nation faces, but also to develop the innovative solutions required to continue to protect this country from threats of all kinds. She appreciates that defense of the United States is so vital that we, to whom it is entrusted, must ensure defense across the domains of armed conflict not just air and land and sea, but space, and cyberspace, across military services and government agencies, from presidential administration to presidential administration and from strategic era to strategic era. This book was written with that world and mission in mind." - Dr. Ash Carter, 25th United States Secretary of Defense and Director, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School

“This book covers a lot of complex subjects in a digestible, understandable way. Dr. Chouraeshkenazi methodically reviews how the uniquely American concepts of national security and homeland security have evolved both before and after the birth of our Republic. She then develops and explains how the two concepts intersect and overlap, especially since the terrible tragedy of September 11, 2001. By so doing, she suggests ways by which we might better confront emerging 21st century threats to American security.”
Robert O. Work, 32nd United States Deputy Secretary of Defense and Distinguished Senior Fellow for Defense and National Security at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS)

"A solid overview with practical, concrete examples, which will stimulate students to think about policy and bureaucratic structures in historical context. Also, examines both military and civilian roles in national security." - Dr. Robert Cadigan, Associate Professor, Department of Applied Social Sciences, Metropolitan College, Boston University

"Homeland & National Security: Understanding America's Past to Protect the Future addresses these concepts appropriately as interrelated considerations. The subject matter addressed is conducive for use in a variety of homeland security courses, be they undergraduate or graduate." Bruce Liebe, Assistant Professor, Criminal Justice & Homeland Security, MacMurray College

"A unique and insightful way of combining national and homeland security under one text." - Dr. Michael Herbert, Professor of Criminal Justice, Bemidiji State University

"Homeland & National Security: Understanding America's Past to Protect the Future examines innovative concepts for combating terrorism not only at home, but on a global perspective." - Dr. George Froggé, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, Austin Peay State University

Qualitative case study on F-35 production delays affecting national security guidance

Approaching $400 billion for its establishment and production, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is the Department of Defense's (DoD) largest acquisition program in U.S. history. Unfortunately, significant delays have immobilized the program's production rate, and little research has examined whether and how such delays directly affect national security. The purpose of this study was to determine whether and how production delays in the JSF program directly affect national security.  For free download, click HERE
