This study examines the management of major incidents in Germany. Over the last decade Germany has developed a successful approach to incident response. The study argues that the transformation of war' (van Creveld) from traditional war to modern low intensity conflicts/ terrorism led to a transformation of civil defence'. A total quality approach to incident response leads to the development of audit tools for structural, procedural, and outcome quality. The outcomes compare favourably to that of paramedic systems. The study describes the components of the German model (incident command system, resources, structures, ...) in detail. Two case studies (air show disaster, Ramstein 1988; ICE train crash, Eschede 1998) show how these concepts evolved. The book will interest emergency planners and responders alike. It also is a useful guide for armed forces medical staff deploying to Germany.

“LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!” “I couldn’t put it down!” Where do you run when even the good guys want you dead? Special Agent Sam Jameson is having a bad week. People are trying to kill her. That would be business as usual in the counterespionage world, except that it’s the good guys who have her in the crosshairs. Why are the DC Metro police trying to kidnap her? Do her bosses at Homeland want her in a body bag, too? And why does everyone she talks to seem to end up in the morgue? Will a ruthless mercenary, a hapless American traitor, and a dead man’s cryptic clue hold the key to Sam’s survival? As the noose tightens around her neck, Sam must uncover a brutal and deadly conspiracy before she becomes its next victim. THE INCIDENT: Reckoning is the second installment in the runaway international sensation INCIDENT trilogy from conspiracy master Lars Emmerich. ———— Interview with #1 Bestselling Author Lars Emmerich Q: Who are your influences? A: Too many to list! I started out years ago as a Tom Clancy addict, and I thoroughly enjoy many of Nelson DeMille’s novels. I regularly read David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Barry Eisler, Michael Connelly, and John Grisham. James Patterson has redefined what it means to be a working author, and I read his stuff as well. My top picks are usually espionage and private detective novels, any of the thousands of thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and, of course, books featuring classic pulp heroes. And I’m greatly influenced by all sorts of nonfiction, as well. I read all the time, and I’m a bit of a magpie about the topics — science, economics, finance, politics, history, mathematics, engineering, biomechanics, medicine… It’s a big world out there, and I love learning more about it. Many of those topics find their way into my fiction, so I can justify it all as “research.” Q: The Sam Jameson series has become quite a phenomenon. What do you think has been the driving force behind the books’ success? A: I think Sam has something of a unique voice. She says the things we all wish we could say, and she gets away with it about half of the time. The other half of the time, not so much. I think she’s also a very human heroine. She has plenty of flaws and weaknesses, yet she accomplishes some amazing things. She’s kind of like every one of us in that regard, which resonates. Q: You have developed personal relationships with your readers over the years, which is unusual in the publishing business. Was that a conscious choice? A: Absolutely. Books are intimate things. They occupy a person’s mind and thoughts for hours at a time. Good books leave a lasting impression, and great books might even change the way we think about things, but all books are a relationship. I felt that Big Publishing did a great job of distributing novels, but at a very high cost — there was almost no way for a personal connection to form between writers and readers. But I always wanted a conversation. I wanted to learn from my readers, to hear what was on their minds, to listen to their criticism and hopefully improve the books I write. It’s been extremely rewarding, and I’m hopeful it can continue for years to come.

Strikingly original in its structure, composed of highly distilled, lyric reports in which you discover if Rigoletto, the hunchbacked jester from Verdi’s opera is alive and living in Toronto. In a Toronto library, notes appear, written by someone who believes he is Rigoletto, the hunchbacked jester from Verdi’s opera. Convinced that the young librarian, Miriam, is his daughter, he promises to protect her. Little does he know how much loss she has already experienced; or does he? Strikingly original in its structure, composed of 140 highly distilled, lyric “reports,” the novel depicts the tensions between private and public storytelling and the subtle dynamics of a socially exposed workplace. Reports on bizarre public behavior intertwine with reports on the private life of the novel’s narrator. Both mystery and love story, The Incident Report daringly explores the fragility of our individual identities.
