These words and terms cover the gamut of concepts, places, individuals, groups, organizations, and programs involved in securing and defending the American homeland from terrorism's explosive intrusion. Author Dr. Margaret R. O'Leary brings over twenty years of experience as an educator, dictionary editor, and physician to the compilation of The Dictionary of Homeland Security and Defense.
