Under Construction
University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the process of finding the community suitable for this study of homeland security in the United States. It describes the difficulties of access and finding the community amid the forest of organizations, and explores the generative properties of practice within the policy community, drawing on themes from globalization theory. The chapter also argues in support of the claim that homeland security in the greater Boston area was being practiced through a policy community.
