Dr. Jeffrey Dailey of the ASU security studies faculty, along with former faculty members Dr. Monica Koenigsberg and Dr. James Phelps, have published the third edition of their collegiate textbook, “Border Security,” through Carolina Academic Press.

First published in 2015, “Border Security” is designed to offer students in border security, homeland security and criminal justice a balanced and up-to-date overview of border security, as well as the constant evolution it has experienced over the past 120 years.

The book has drawn rave reviews from such experts as retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Robert Scales, former commander of the Army War College; El Paso Times journalist Diana Washington Valdez, author of “The Killing Fields: Harvest of Women” about violence on the El Paso/Juarez border; and Dr. Robert Bunker, former professor and Minerva Chair in the Army War College Strategic Studies Institute.

Primary topics described and discussed in “Border Security” include:

Dailey is a professor of intelligence and analysis who joined the ASU faculty in 2010. Koenigsberg was on ASU criminal justice faculty from 2007 until her retirement in 2022. Phelps was on the ASU border security faculty from 2010-16 and is currently an adjunct professor for Aurora University and Nova Southeastern University.

“Border Security” is available through Carolina Academic Press and on Amazon, and it comes with a full instructor’s manual and supporting lecture materials available through the publisher.
