Aviation Insecurity: The New Challenges of Air Travel, Air Terrorism, Airport Security, Air Marshals, Bomb Detection Devices and Profiling Crews and Passengers


The events of September 11, 2001 compelled the American public to look at air travel as much more than merely another way of getting from point A to point B. An industry that was previously viewed as a routine component of modern transport is now seen as both a vital national asset and a vulnerable security risk. In this compelling critique of the security measures taken after September 11, aviation security expert Andrew Thomas considers the proposed solutions to the vulnerability of airlines in terms of practicality, cost, and effectiveness, and outlines a better strategic approach for government and the aviation industry to meet new and existing threats while continuing to serve the public in an efficient manner.
