"In the last decade, the United States has poured over a billion dollars into a network of interagency intelligence centers called "fusion centers." Fusion centers were ostensibly set up to prevent terrorism, but politicians, the press, and policy advocates have repeatedly criticized these centers for failures. Why have these security systems persisted? Pacifying the Homeland travels inside the world of intelligence fusion and sees past the apparent failure of fusion centers to reveal a broader shift away from mass incarceration and toward a more surveillance- and police-intensive system of social regulation"--Provided by publisher
