As the Paris bureau chief and Middle East editor for Newsweek magazine, Christopher Dickey has reported on international terrorism for more than two decades. His "Shadowland" column about counter terrorism, espionage, and the Middle East is popular worldwide. Dickey will introduce his book, Securing the City: Inside America's Best Counterterror Force -- The NYPD, which takes us into the secret command center of NYPD's counter terrorism division and onto the streets of America's major cities. He will give us insights to the potential war in America's cities, and the shadow battles being fought around the globe to stop that war before it begins.
FYI - Houston ranks number 6 on the list of U.S. cities with the highest security threats.
Added interest - Dickey's father, James Dickey, is the famed author of Deliverance and other well-regarded works. He taught at Rice University and still has a strong local following.
Brazos Bookstore will attend and make Christopher Dickey's book available for sale. (booksense)
