The third edition of the Handbook of Security, edited by Perpetuity Research director Martin Gill, has been published.

The book contains 45 contributions from the leading scholars in the world, with topics covering a vast range of issues from security and the margin footprint; the ways security is portrayed in films; the economic case for security; evaluations of different security approaches; and the role of security in tackling a range of offences, from burglary to terrorism to money laundering to corruption; to name but a few.

There are two new sections with chapters looking at ‘Better Security’ and the ‘Impact of Security’.

The book has already received positive reviews:

• “Dr Gill continues to leverage his extensive knowledge and expert contacts to provide practitioners and academics alike a strong resource as they learn and plan.” – Read Hayes, research scientist, University of Florida, USA, and director, Loss Prevention Research Council.

• “Martin Gill, in this, the third and very welcome edition of the Handbook of Security, has skilfully curated a masterful review of developments in a rapidly evolving field of enquiry that has been, and is being, constantly reshaped by the novel risks that have emerged as a defining feature of 21st century existence.” – Clifford Shearing, University of Cape Town, South Africa, and Griffith University, Australia
