Emergency Preparedness Guidebook for School Volunteers,
Parents and PTAs
Widely publicized accounts of tragedy striking school campuses have raised the level of concern among parents, teachers and students alike. The unsettling events of Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School, Colorado’s Columbine High School and Virginia Tech have forced schools nationwide to shed their innocence, dispel their complacency about crisis response, pause, and take stock.
The crucial lesson drawn from those headlines is that schools must maintain a high level of preparedness for man-made emergencies as well as natural disasters. Moving Beyond Duck, Cover and Hold On (Alexander Works, 2013) highlights ways that parents can work with school administrators to boost emergency response capabilities. This guidebook offers an answer to parents who want to support school resilience when tragedy strikes the campus.

High Stakes and Strategies in Cyberspace
The Domain Name Handbook: High Stakes and Strategies in Cyberspace (R&D Books, 1998) provides a practical history of domain name policies, protocols, disputes, controversies and initiatives from the inception of the domain name system. The first complete book published on the topic, The Domain Name Handbook includes detailed guidance on the Internet domain name registration process prior to 1998.
More than three dozen early domain name disputes are profiled in the book. A CD-ROM contains the domain name server files for all domain names registered in the .COM, .NET and .ORG root zones as of June 1997. The Domain Name Handbook remains the most comprehensive archive of the early development of the domain name system prior to the establishment of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in 1998. The book is no longer in print but copies are available online.
