New book by Dr. Monique M. Chouraeshkenazi – Homeland and National Security: Understanding America’s Past to Protect the Future

San Diego, CA – April 30, 2018Homeland and National Security: Understanding America’s Past to Protect the Future by Dr. Monique M. Chouraeshkenazi examines the events that have led to the establishment of the Department of Defense and how national security has changed since then. The September 11, 2001 attacks on American soil resulted in the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, the country’s third largest Cabinet-level department, highlighting homeland security as another primary objective in protecting the na­tion.

Early chapters provide historical perspective, describing the nature and practice of national security from the American Revolutionary War through the post-Cold War era. The latter half of the book provides a detailed examination of homeland and national security concepts as we now un­derstand it, which includes consideration of traditional ter­rorism, homegrown terrorism, innovative terrorism, natural disasters, conflict, specific statutes, initiatives, and agencies, and the roles of intelligence, emergency preparedness, and communications.

Each chapter includes key terms, learning objectives, case studies, application activities, and a quiz. The book can be used in courses of political science, domestic and interna­tional terrorism, homeland security, emergency manage­ment, international relations, national security, homeland security strategy, policy, and specific aspects of criminal justice. It will also be of interest to government agencies dealing with security issues, and lay readers interested in a critical area of American policy.

A former antiterrorism instructor for the United States Air Force, Dr. Monique M. Chouraeshkenazi served over thir­teen years of active duty service specializing in cyber-se­curity, knowledge operations, and security management. She earned a Ph.D. in public policy at Walden University, where she focused on terrorism, mediation, and peace.
