This timely book provides a multidisciplinary and comparative analysis of the ongoing terrorist threats against all aspects of air transportation, the effectiveness of the responses, globally, regionally and nationally, and the continuing challenges to policymakers seeking to achieve a safe and secure global aviation system. The first part provides an overview of the industry's characteristics, the economic and regulatory issues shaping the security environment, such as legal frameworks, and the role of the private sector in safeguarding passenger and air cargo flights. The second part provides comparative analyses of security policies and practices in several key countries: the United States, Canada, Brazil, Kenya, Israel, Malaysia, Japan and Australia. The book concludes with a comparative analysis of the contemporary state of aviation security policies and practices and its future challenges. Containing extensive interdisciplinary analyses of the main issues and challenges related to all aspects of aviation security, the book will be of great interest not only to scholars, students and practitioners concerned with aviation security, and to institutions that provide courses or programs in aviation management and related fields, but also to anyone dealing with such related topics as terrorism, public policy, transport, urban studies and logistics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This book is a landmark in the field, providing original reflections and a series of case studies from different countries all over the world. This will be of high value to researchers and practitioners, given the current urgent need to investigate air transport security policies and analyze their (networked) economic impacts at the global, national and regional level.' -- Aura Reggiani, University of Bologna, Italy
`Its visibility, widespread use, economic value and vulnerability has meant that air transportation has been the subject of numerous attacks over the years. These have taken a diversity of forms and been driven by a variety of motivations. The contributions to this edited book value offer a set of insightful studies not only of the nature of the broad on-going trends in attacks, but also the perspectives of the various actors in both the public and private sector, who have to formulate countermeasures. Because of the uncertainties involved, the tasks of airlines, airports and air traffic control, as well as national and international public bodies, to counter attacks on aviation have been especially challenging. The chapters here offer those new to the subject an excellent overview of the challenges being confronted and the reactions of the aviation sector and public policymakers to them.' -- Kenneth J. Button, George Mason University, US
