Editorial Reviews

Review

" . . . Hunter does a superior job of restricting an extraordinarily complex issue to the more essential components, juxtaposed with specific historic examples rather than a series of 'suppose that X happened' scenarios."--Dr. Christian M. Salmon, Research Scientist, George Washington University, School of Engineering and Applied Science. Journal of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Volume 7, Issue 1, 2010, Article 18.

"Hunter engages with and debates some of the most important constitutional issues of our time, such as the tension between civil liberties and national security. This book satisfies the need of professionals in a wide array of fields related to emergency management to understand both what the law requires and how to analyze issues for which there is no legal answer."--The Journal of Law Enforcement

"Hunter more than answers the needs of her intended audience: undergraduate, graduate, and law students, as well as professionals whose work involves preparation for or mitigation of emergencies. More broadly, however, this book is worthwhile for anyone responsible for public safety and security."--Security Management

She has taught law school courses in Public Health and Bioterrorism Law and Public Health and Emergency Preparedness.

The book is a horrible read, and seems to be nothing but case law...written in their entirety. But heck, it's required for the class, so why am I even writing a review?

I can say this, the book was "as described," when it comes to quality... so I'll give it three stars. All three for being described as it came, and minus two for being a boring book... yes, even more boring than most other school books.
