Despite the growing interest in security amongst governments, organizations and the general public, the provision of much security is substandard. This book explores the problems facing security, and sets out innovative proposals to enhance the effectiveness of security in society, at national and organizational levels.

Review:

'...It's welcome to have this book, brimming with ideas by someone with academic rigour...I have to stress what a wide-ranging, assured and thought-provoking read this is for the UK (and indeed Irish and other English-speaking) security person...this is a first stop for picking up ideas and quotes. There aren't many published books out there that the security manager ought to have on his shelf...One of them is Prof Martin Gill's Handbook of Security...Doing Security is another...That's the stature of this.' Professional Security
