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.

Accurate, comprehensive, thought-provoking beyond belief. A long overdue inside look at a layered aviation security system plagued with misconception and vulnerabilities...the reference 'bible' for anyone looking to identify the flaws in the aviation security system.--Captain Stephen A. Luckey, Chairman, National Security Committee, Air Line Pilots Assoc. Int'lThe terrorist' devastating attacks of September 11, 2001, did not succeed because they were so good, but because the state of the U.S. aviation security system was so bad. Thomas lays out the cost of complacency and shows how remaining holes in aviation security can be plugged.--David Evans, Editor, Air Safety Week...packed with facts about the state of security or insecurity in aviation...I would strongly encourage everyone involved with the aviation industry to read this book.--Fred Ragsdale, Program Director, Training, National Terrorism Preparedness Institute, St. Petersburg CollegeThe events of September 11 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 probing critique of aviation security since 9/11, Andrew R. Thomas, a globally recognized aviation security expert, examines the recent overhaul of the national aviation security system.Despite the complete federal takeover of aviation security in November 2001, Thomas notes many continuing problems, including: millions of passenger bags that are still not screened or matched; the unresolved problem of air rage and unruly passenger behavior; the forgotten chasm of air cargo, which remains largely unchecked due to inadequate resources; and lax standards, the hiring of high-risk employees, and the failure to secure critical areas in many of our nation's airports.Thomas also considers many of the proposed solutions to these vulnerabilities: biometrics, profiling, air marshals, bomb-detection devices, and smart technology that links reservations systems to private and government databases. How practical are these proposals? Will they work? What will they cost? How much time will be needed to implement any or all of them? In light of the restructuring of airline security, what new roles will be played by the airline industry, government, airports, and the Transportation Security Administration? Thomas's thorough analysis and command of all the facts create an enlightening overview of the airline security dilemma and its numerous formidable challenges.Finally, he considers the future, outlining a strategic approach for government and industry to meet new and existing threats while continuing to serve the public in an efficient manner.Andrew R. Thomas (Brecksville, OH), coauthor of Air Rage: Crisis in the Skies, is a global business expert, aviation security analyst, Founding Editor of the Journal of Transportation Security, Editor of the 3 Volume Set Aviation Security Management in the 21st Century, and author. He is a frequent contributor to the Fox News Channel and has appeared on more than 150 television and radio programs across the country, including The O'Reilly Factor, On the Record with Greta van Susteren, and Court TV. He currently serves on the graduate faculties of Cleveland State University and Myers University. For more information, see www.AviationInsecurity.com.

America is a target; the homeland is under threat. While Americans have been targets of terrorist attacks for quite some time, September 11, 2001, awoke the nation to the reality that we are vulnerable in our homes, our places of work and worship, and our means of public transportation. And yet, we must continue to function as best we can as the world's most vibrant economic and political community. The current threat environment requires greater engagement with the public, as the necessary eyes and ears of the nation's homeland security infrastructure. However, to be effective, the public must be equipped with the knowledge of where and why specific locations and activities may be a terrorist target, what is being done to protect those targets, and how they can help. This three-volume set answers that need. The chapters of each volume of Homeland Security revolve around a core of central questions. Are we safer today than we were pre-9/11? What steps have been taken in all these areas to protect ourselves? What are the threats we face, and what new threats have developed since 9/11? Are we staying one step ahead of those who wish to do us harm? In 2002, more than 400 million people, 122 million cars, 11 million trucks, 2.4 million freight cars, and 8 million containers entered the United States. Nearly 60,000 vessels entered the United States at its 301 ports of entry. Clearly the amount of activity this represents will require a long-term commitment to innovation, organizational learning, and public vigilance to complement an already overstretched network of government agencies and security professionals.

In 2004, an estimated 23 billion pounds of air cargo (AC) was transported within the U.S., about a quarter of which was transported on passenger aircraft. Within the Dept. of Homeland Security, the Transportation Security Admin. (TSA) is responsible for ensuring the security of commercial aviation, incl. AC. To evaluate the status of TSA's efforts to secure domestic AC, this report examined: (1) the extent to which TSA used a risk management approach to guide decisions on securing AC; (2) the actions TSA has taken to ensure the security of AC & the factors that may limit their effectiveness; & (3) TSA's plans for enhancing AC security & the challenges that TSA & industry stakeholders face in implementing these plans.
