Under Construction

This chapter, which discusses the issues covered by homeland security work in the United States, suggests that there are two rough categories of homeland security work: daily task oriented work and context building. It provides examples of some of the questions facing practitioners, and introduces two important themes of coordination and information sharing/secrecy. The chapter also contends that understanding local homeland security is a fundamentally interpretive task.
