My friend Claire Rubin as Senior Editor and most of the original chapter authors are working to update the PERI History of EM-The American Experience. I have submitted by comments on the draft revised chapters to Claire.
My friend William C. Nicholson is also revising his book “EM LAW and POLICY” and I provided some edits to him on the FEMA chapters.
Finally, working with others to try and capture accurately the planning and preparedness activity of the George W.Bush Administration and the Obama Administration. Still almost a year off from publication by the Institute for Naval Proceedings. There is nothing like it for the post WWII domestic crisis management history.
Several histories of the National Security Council established by the National Security Act of 1947 have appeared in recent years. I find David Rothkop’s book entitled “Running the World” the quickest read. It will be interesting to see if updated through the Obama Administration.
