Because of the evolving nature of homeland security, this course will make optimal use of the most recent and most relevant literature available. There is a textbook as well as a series of journal articles and other research that will come from the bibliography in this syllabus. Many of the citations will refer you to a web site for easy reference. You will need Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat Reader (http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html).
Like homeland security, the Internet also has an evolving nature. Some of the referenced online literature may be deleted, moved, or renamed during the course. Please be flexible. Alternative readings will be provided for any that are no longer available. If you notice that a link in the syllabus is no longer active, please advise the instructor.
The text for this course is: Fearn-Banks, Kathleen (2011), Crisis Communications: A Casebook Approach, 4th Edition, Mauwa, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.
