Nearly five years after the terrorist attacks of September 11, has the government adequately protected its citizens against terrorism and catastrophic disaster? The Forgotten Homeland: A Century Foundation Task Force Report gathers leading homeland security experts to analyze the nation's most significant vulnerabilities and propose strategies to reduce them. The report addresses terrorist and other threats, assesses the government’s initiatives to date, and offers ideas for strengthening all aspects of our emergency response—including our ability to respond to natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina. Whether a policy expert or a concerned citizen, The Forgotten Homeland is required reading for those who wish to understand the security challenges facing the United States—and how we can solve them.
