Reviews

'Some books, besides being hailed for their content, deserve honour just for the achievement of being there between two covers. Prof Martin Gill's collection The Handbook of Security is one of those books... If a security manager who seeks some academic or other qualification, or wants to think about his profession, has one book on the shelf, it should be this one.' - Mark Rowe, Professional Security

'This is an excellent textbook for graduate-level security education. It is also a great read for undergraduate instructors...The Handbook of Security stands among the industry's top references. It should be the first of many editions.' - Evelyn Byrd, Security Management

'The Handbook of Security is essential reading for all those engaged with the security world, the in-depth tome collating the very best research available for the practising professional...a reference work par excellence.' - Chris Brogan, Security Management Today
