On March 11, The Institute of World Politics hosted Professor James Carafano for a lecture event regarding his new book Surviving the End: A Practical Guide for Everyday Americans in the Age of Terror.
Dr. Carafano’s experience in the development of the Department of Homeland Security prompted him to educate people on how to survive disaster situations. Surviving the End does just that. In his lecture, Dr. Carafano outlined the five characteristics one needs to survive a disaster: education, family, health, faith, and firearms. Detailed reasoning for these points was provided, as well as analysis on how they can positively impact decision making in a survival scenario.
Dr. Carafano teaches the course “Foundations of Homeland Security” at the Institute, and also serves as Vice President of Foreign and Defense Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation.
