Section VIII : Thinking, Education, and Training


Section VIII on “Thinking, Education, and Training” explains why coping with the dynamic complexity of the homeland security area requires systems thinking, and why no single discipline can achieve a comprehensive understanding of terrorism or homeland security. The section offers a theoretical foundation for interdisciplinary study and homeland security education. Also included in this section is a chapter on emergency exercise design and evaluation.
