Zusatztext "Studies into private (or commercial) security have become a well established field of academic and practitioner interest over the past three centuries. However! this body of knowledge mostly focuses on manned guarding services and! to a lesser extent! detective work. Kevin Walby and Randy Lippert take a leap forward by broadening the scope of research to corporate security! i.e. different forms of regulatory and investigatory units within organizations like airports! harbors! banks and insurance companies. A must read for everybody interested in security work straddling the public-private divide." - Ronald van Steden! VU University Amsterdam! The Netherlands "This welcome volume revitalizes the domain of security studies by recognizing that corporations across the globe! acting as hugely influential auspices of governance! have been systematically redefining the boundaries of security provision." - Professor Clifford Shearing! University of Cape Town! South Africa! and Griffith University! Australia 'The public policy debate about cybercrime in developed economies shows little sign of abating and the intermingling of national and corporate security agendas is increasingly prominent. For this reason Corporate Security in the 21st Century is a most timely and important collection dealing with the history! practices and issues of the field. Walby and Lippert have assembled a rich and diverse set of essays to provide the perfect overview of the many faces of corporate security. The contributions deal with the expertise pressures! knowledge transfer dynamics! blurred organisational boundaries and governance ambiguities which characterise the transition of security practices from their murky past to a mainstream corporate position! with critical implications for the corporate management and government interface. This is essential reading for anyone wishing to get a sense of where corporate security is going in the near term'. - Michael Power! London School of Economics and Political Science! UK "Corporations prefer to conceal the details of their security practices. Corporate Security in the 21st Century sheds light on this traditionally secretive world. With contributions that analyze contexts as different as Iraq's conflict zones and the residences of your local university! both experts and newcomers to this field are bound to learn a tremendous amount from this timely volume." - Kevin Haggerty! University of Alberta! Canada "Here is another fine addition to the 'Crime Prevention and Security Management' series of books edited by Prof Martin Gill [...] Corporate Security in the 21st Century covers new territory! because as security work goes coporate security is largely invisible." - Professional Security Magazine Zusammenfassung This interdisciplinary collection places corporate security in a theoretical and international context. Arguing that corporate security is becoming the primary form of security in the twenty-first century! it explores a range of issues including regulation! accountability! militarization! strategies of securitization and practitioner techniques.
