Critical Issues in Homeland Security: A Casebook encourages analytical and careful examination of practical homeland security problems through the presentation of contemporary cases involving major state or national events. Case studies demonstrate the complexity of challenges within the domain of homeland security policy and administration. Editors James D. Ramsay and Linda Kiltz carefully curated fourteen cases, all from top scholars and practitioners, to cover a broad range of legal, policy, and operational challenges within the field of homeland security. Timely and interesting cases on such issues as arctic security, the use of drones in targeted killings, cyber security, and the emergency management lessons of the 2010 Haiti earthquake give students a deeper understanding of the relationship between the theories and the practices of homeland security. Discussion questions at the end of each case and an online instructor's manual make Critical Issues in Homeland Security an even more effective learning tool for any homeland security program.

Cooler, cleverer und radikaler, als der Staat erlaubt! Marcus, alias «w1n5t0n», ist 17, smart und ein begeisterter Gamer. Als Terroristen die Oakland Bay Bridge in San Francisco in die Luft sprengen, befinden er und seine Freunde sich zur falschen Zeit am falschen Ort. Agenten der Sicherheitsbehörde halten sie für verdächtig und verschleppen sie auf eine geheime Insel, wo sie tagelang verhört, schikaniert und gedemütigt werden. Als Marcus freikommt, hat sich San Francisco in einen Überwachungsstaat verwandelt. Jeder Bürger – ein potentieller Terrorist; Menschenrechte – zweitrangig; Freiheit – ein «Sicherheitsrisiko». Marcus und seine Freunde können nicht akzeptieren, was geschehen ist – und beschließen, sich zu wehren. Mit Hilfe subversiver neuer Medien organisieren sie sich zu einer «Gamer-Guerilla». Ihr Plan: Sabotage der staatlichen Überwachung. Ihre Waffen: die Zukunftstechnologien. Ihr Ziel: der Sturz der Regierung.
