Neues Buch: Security Games

Gerade ist das Buch Security Games. Surveillance and Control at Mega-Events erschienen – Herausgeber:  Colin Bennett, Kevin Haggerty.

Security Games: Surveillance and Control at Mega-Events addresses the impact of mega-events – such as the Olympic Games and the World Cup – on wider practices of security and surveillance. “Mega-Events” pose peculiar and extensive security challenges. The overwhelming imperative is that “nothing should go wrong.” There are, however, an almost infinite number of things that can “go wrong”; producing the perceived need for pre-emptive risk assessments, and an expanding range of security measures, including extensive forms and levels of surveillance.

Ein bestimmt lohnenswertes Buch zu einem wichtigen Thema angesichts der kommenden olympischen Spiel in London 2012 und der Fußball WM 2014 in Brasilien.

Mit dabei eine Reihe bekannter und geschätzter Kollegen.
