The book is an excellent portrayal of one perspective (Mr Giduck) and it documents the terror at Beslan. He lays out the background, reports on the tragedy and attempts to be proactive in his approach to the extent that an event like this can happen in USA. Contrary to some, the book is not about tactics nor military power. The book is a wake up call, especially when there are those who believe that an event like than can never happen is US,A and we said the same thing about 9/11. The same with Newtown, USA. A reminder that Public Policy will either mitigate or aggravate the end result of domestic citizens terrorizing their places of learning and it is the children who usually suffer!
KEY WORDS: Lessons for America's schools
Terrorism (foreign or domestic) should be nipped in the bud through vigilance. If you believe that America is Utopia then no need to buy the book!
It's a dam shame that we as a modern country can not bring ourselves to learn from others. With the ongoing shootings in our schools, all we continue to talk about is changing the firearms laws.
When you look at the profile of these individuals who are involved in these school shootings it is so clear to me. Learn from others. Russia on this issue has addressed the violence in their schools. Placing armed officers in our schools will deter these individuals and if not will increase the response time if an incident does occur. Why are we not talking about this option? Shame on us if we continue to do nothing but talk!
