From the Back Cover:

This book seeks to present not just a historical analysis of the development of airport security, but also to convince the reader of the importance of commercial aviation to the world economy.

Legislation enacted since September 11, 2001 is analyzed and the reader is provided with a critical review of the ongoing efforts of the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security. Some of the procedures are praised and others are criticized, leaving the reader the opportunity to make their own decisions as to what will improve security as it relates to their practitioner goals or student development.
