Show synopsis SECURING THE NATION explores the changes in the mandates and organization of U.S. national security since the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001. Paying special attention to the developing Department of Homeland Security, this new series aims to make modern problems of national security accessible to young readers. Each book focuses on the "ins and outs" of the agencies and subdisciplines of national security--history, technology, procedures, and changes since September 11, 2001--and discusses the training necessary to enter each field. The connections between terrorism and drug trade have been scrutinized since September 11, 2001. In this volume, the former chief counsel to the U.S. House Subcommittee on National Security, also former chief staffer to the U.S. House Speaker's Task Force on Counter-Narcotics, discusses what federal agencies are doing to track and impede this relationship.
