Editorial Reviews


"Dr. Frances Edwards and Mr. Daniel Goodrich’s Introduction to Transportation Security provides comprehensive coverage of multimodal surface transportation security threats and strategies. They also present a detailed history and overview of key federal agencies, their origins, evolvement, purposes and organizational structures. This book is an excellent and much-needed addition to the transportation security student, researcher, or practitioner’s bookshelf."
—Dr. Yuko J. Nakanishi, Chair, ABE40 Committee on Critical Transportation Infrastructure Protection and Principal, Nakanishi Research and Consulting, LLC

"This is an important read for all managers in need of comprehensive reference materials on Transportation Security for all modes. The learning objectives, case studies, summaries, and discussion questions in each chapter keep you focused. This is an invaluable tool for both the student or seasoned professional."
—Herby G. Lissade, P.E., Chief, Office of Emergency Management for the California Department of Transportation – Caltrans, Founder and President of Haiti Engineering

"Individually, Dr. Frances Edwards and Dan Goodrich possess enormous knowledge about transportation security and disaster management protocols. Together, they are a formidable team. Ever since 9/11, Americans have come face-to-face with the disastrous results of an attack on transportation. However, even with ever-tightening security at airports, American transit and other "open" systems remain unacceptably vulnerable, especially to a random "lone wolf" attacker. What are some of the weapons—including chemical and biological—that can be used against transportation systems? What strategies do organized attackers often take? How have these attacks been carried out in other nations? How have they affected the local and national economies? What can be learned from them? In this, their latest book, Edwards and Goodrich deliver their expert insights to a new generation of security professionals who face very different challenges than did those who came before."
—Rod Diridon, Sr., Executive Director, Mineta Transportation Institute

"Introduction to Transportation Security is the best textbook I have read on transportation security because it is the both comprehensive and interesting. It moves from theory to practice across all modes of transportation … and addresses a full spectrum of issues associated with transportation security. Introduction to Transportation Security is highly recommended for all introductory homeland security and transportation security courses, and would be an excellent additional text for many emergency management and security management courses."
—Linda Kiltz, Journal of Homeland Security Education

"The authors of this book are clearly experts in the field of transportation security, and their well-organized work will help security professionals as well as students learn about the transportation industry, how it affects the overall economy, and how to protect it."
