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.
