From the Publisher
"In free societies and global market economies, terrorism has its choice of carriers. Although the public tends to focus on air transport, seagoing craft are especially vulnerable in terms of security. Allen, who is also a master mariner and academic maritime journalist, examines the risks of terrorism associated with the sea, including transport of personnel and materiel such as weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). He describes how deadly cargoes are developed by undeterrable or irrational enemies, security policies and practices now in place such as the WMD nonproliferation regime, multilateral counter-proliferation initiatives, the role of information and intelligence, the conduct of maritime counter-terrorism security operations, applicable international laws, preserving the rule of law in interceptions and boarding, and the compensation of the innocent in terms of state responsibility and liability."
Reference & Research Book News
"Some of the strengths of this book are the concise and readable introduction to the non-proliferation multilateral treaty regime (chapter 3); the brief notes on the evolution and responses to the PSI (chapter four); and the operational reality regarding intelligence in maritime counterproliferation operations (chapter five). […] For ocean lawyers or those interested in maritime security matters, Allen's contribution to the literature is both accessible and important."
