Review:


"I would highly recommend this book to students and working security professionals alike. In fact the book should be required reading for TSA personnel and others who work in aviation and airport security." — Scott Watson Senior Risk Management Analyst, Liberty Regional Agency Markets




"I would certainly use this book in a college level course dealing with terrorism. While the author stresses aviation security, the text also examines terrorism from a historical perspective. This text has the potential to be used as a training manual for TSA, FAA airport policing, and security agencies. The text is extremely well written, contemporary, interesting, and thorough." — James Albrecht, Sam Houston State University
