CBRN terrorism threat assessment

Littlewood, Jez and Simpson, John (1970) CBRN terrorism threat assessment In, Wilkinson, Paul (eds.) Homeland Security in the UK: Future Preparedness for Terrorist Attack since 9/11. Routledge (Cass Series on Political Violence).

Record type: Book Section


This new book examines whether homeland security is striking an appropriate balance, with a special focus on the UK.
In the wake of the July 7th 2005 attacks in London, this is a much-needed assessment of how key public and private sector bodies in the UK can prevent, pre-empt, counter and manage any future terrorist assault. Leading scholars in the field examine the quality of these responses against a matrix of other factors (types of terrorist networks, tactics and targets of groups, etc), comparing and contrasting the UK's response with cognate states elsewhere, such as the USA and the EU. The book investigates how increased security has affected civil liberties and clearly demonstrates how both society and freedom can be protected in the twenty-first century. It shows how responses that are now evolving are getting this balance right and how such a balance can continue to be struck or enhanced in the future.
Containing an analysis of the British government’s report on the July 7th bombings, Homeland Security in the UK will appeal to students of terrorism, defence and security studies, international relations and political science, as well as professionals in the fields of law-enforcement, media and the military, and informed general readers.
