Because of 9/11, there is universal recognition that aviation security is a deadly serious business. Still, around the world today, the practice of aviation security is rooted in a hodgepodge of governmental rules, industry traditions, and local idiosyncrasies. In fact, nearly seven years after the largest single attack involving the air transport industry, there remains no viable framework in place to lift aviation security practice out of the mishmash that currently exists. It is the ambitious intent of Aviation Security Management to change that. The goals of this set are nothing less than to make flying safer, to make transporting goods by air safer, and to lay the foundation for the professionalization of this most important field. This dynamic set showcases the most current trends, issues, ideas, and practices in aviation security management, especially as the field evolves in the context of globalization and advances in technology. Written by leading academic thinkers, practitioners, and former and current regulators in the field, the three volumes highlight emerging and innovative practices, illustrated with examples from around the world. Volume 1 takes a penetrating look at the overall framework in which aviation security management has taken place in the past and will likely do so in the foreseeable future. It covers the major areas of focus for anyone in the aviation security business, and it provides a basis for educational programs. Volume 2 delves into the emerging issues affecting aviation security managers right now. Volume 3: Perspectives on Aviation Security Management covers the full spectrum of international aviation security-related issues. It will serve as part of the foundation for the next generation of research in the area in both a business and cultural context. Collectively, these volumes represent the state of the art in the field today and constitute an essential resource for anyone practicing, studying, teaching, or researching aviation security management.

In the last decade, a great deal of excitement has been generated around the architecture of contemporary airports. It is, however, the inside rather than the outside of airport terminals that have undergone the most substantial design revolution. With increased security, passengers spend an increasing amount of time in airports airside awaiting flights. Airport operators have capitalised on this captive audience, becoming increasingly sophisticated in their provision of facilities, as suppliers of much more than essential amenities and mini shopping malls. Airlines also seek to express their competitive advantage through their lounges and adjacent spaces; and retailers and food and beverage providers are producing attractive, often localised spaces for visitors. The operators are keen to differentiate the quality of their terminals whether it is through pitching at a luxury goods market, with top name brands, or endowing their interior spaces with a unique sense of place. This book is not only one of the first titles to focus on airports’ interior design, but also to realise for both a design and business readership the financial and strategic importance of airport interior design. Airport Interiors features exemplary case studies from all over the world, including: the Malaysian luxury-goods retailer Valiram; duty-free retail in Bangkok’s Suvarnbhumi Airport; the UK restaurant chain Giraffe; leading lounge concepts from Virgin Atlantic; and the innovative airport retail outlets of Chinese brand Shanghai Tang. While providing designers with a unique understanding of business needs, the book also highlights to operators and retailers how high the design bar is set in this competitive field.

Take One Deranged Killer. Add One Determined Cop. You Get One Deadly Obsession. . . From the moment he sees the young woman's body in her hotel bathtub, homicide detective Jack Murphy knows he's looking at a truly demented but brilliantly designed puzzle. She's been drained of blood. Missing her left hand—and the killer left a special message just for him. Hours later, he sees her severed hand arranged on a second victim's body. The newspaper has the gruesome details. The FBI has a theory. But only Murphy knows how hard he'll have to push—and how much he'll have to risk—to thwart the killer's twisted game. Praise for The Cruelest Cut "As authentic and scary as crime thrillers get."—Nelson DeMille "Put this on your must-read list."—John Lutz "A jaw-dropping thriller."—Gregg Olsen "A tornado of drama."—Shane Gericke

Since their emergence at the start of the 20th century, airports have become one of the most distinctive and important of architectural building types. Often used to symbolize progress, freedom and trade, they offer architects the chance to design on a grand scale. At the beginning of the 21st century, airports are experiencing a new and exciting renaissance as they adapt and evolve into a new type of building; one that is complete, adaptable and catering to a new range of demands. As passengers are held in airports far longer than they used to be, they have also now become destinations in their own right. Airports celebrates the most important airport designs in the world. Beginning with an exploration of the first structures of aviation, and early designs such as the Berlin Tempelhof, the book explores the key airports of the century up to the present day, including Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal in New York, Renzo Piano's Kansai Airport and Norman Foster's Chek Lap Kok in Hong Kong.
