Almost 20 years have gone by since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and almost 19 years have passed since the creation of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (2002). In that time, securing the Homeland has changed dramatically and been complicated by the emergence of new threats, such as natural disasters, cyberattacks, and transforming-terrorism. Out of The MIT Press and the Belfer Center Studies in International Security comes Beyond 9/11, Homeland Security for the Twenty-First Century, a critical analysis on the last 20 years of Homeland security and what lessons, strategies, and allies can be brought along to “secure the Homeland” into the future.
