Transnational Security free pdf Globalization and the easy movement of people, weapons, and toxins across borders has transformed security into a transnational phenomenon. Preventing transnational security threats has proven to be a very difficult challenge for governments and institutions around the world. Transnational Security addresses these issues, which are at the forefront of every global security professional's agenda. This book analyzes the most pressing current transnational security threats, including weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, organized crime, cybercrime, natural disasters, human-made disasters, infectious diseases, food insecurity, water insecurity, and energy insecurity. It considers the applicable international laws and examines how key international organizations are dealing with these issues. The author uses a combination of theory and real-world examples to illustrate the transnational nature of security risks. By providing a detailed account of the different threats, countermeasures, and their implications for a number of different fields-law, public policy and administration, security, and criminology-this book will be an extremely useful resource for academicians, practitioners, and graduate and upper-level undergraduate students in these areas.
