Richard Sylves provides needed context and contemporary coverage of the disaster management and homeland security field. Paying special attention to the role of key actors--decision makers at the federal, state and local levels, scientists, engineers, civil and military personnel, officials and first responders--the author explores how social science research can be usefully applied to policy development and every day practice. The book's "all-hazards" comprehensive approach introduces students to the importance of public policy analysis, organizational management, and leadership issues they will need a command of as future practitioners and leaders in the field. New to the Edition: A new chapter on 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund sheds light on contemporary recovery assistance: are the new protocols for recovery effective? What lessons can be learned from recent disaster relief assistance efforts? New coverage of public management theory, complexity and network theories, and emerging approaches to disaster recovery. A look at how policy and practice at all levels are adapting to emerging threats like cyber terrorism and the increased capacity of civil authorities to respond. Updates tie recent international and domestic events to approaches to disaster management, from the Fukushima nuclear disaster to the Boston Marathon bombings to the tornadoes that destroyed Moore, OK.
