Detail from book cover.

The Department of Homeland Security was created in the wake of the greatest tragedy to occur on U.S. soil. An agency that's part terrorism prevention, part intelligence agency, and part law enforcement makes for an odd combination in the protocol-driven, tradition-bound Washington, DC culture. In How Safe Are We? Janet Napolitano not only answers the titular question, but grapples with how homeland security efforts have changed our country and society.

Where are the failures that leave us vulnerable? What are the real risks the United States needs to confront?

Janet Napolitano served as secretary of Homeland Security from 2009 to 2013. Before that she was the governor of Arizona. Since 2013, she has served as the president of the University of California.
