British War on Terror: Terrorism and Counter-terrorism on the Home Front Since 9-11 (Paperback), by Steve Hewitt. Continuum International Publishing Group (February 6, 2008). Information

Counter-Terrorism Policing: Community, Cohesion and Security (Hardcover), by Sharon Pickering, Jude McCulloch and David Wright-Neville. Springer; 1 edition (December 28, 2007).
Counter-Terrorism Policing examines the impact of terrorism on the policing organisation and culturally diverse communities. This book is the first of its kind to contextualise counter-terrorism policing in a conceptual framework and takes account of the unique challenge of the increasing cosmopolitan character of major cities. Based on detailed documentary and ethnographic research it holds significant lessons for cosmopolitan cities around the world. Information

Europe's Foreign and Security Policy: The Institutionalization of Cooperation (Themes in European Governance) (Paperback), by Michael E. Smith. Cambridge University Press (December 15, 2003).
Emergence of a common security and foreign policy has been one of the most contentious issues accompanying the integration of the European Union. With extensive empirical evidence drawn from interviews, case studies, official documents and secondary sources, Michael Smith examines the specific ways foreign policy cooperation has been institutionalized in the EU. This analysis will appeal to scholars and researchers in international relations, law, foreign policy and European studies. Information

Security and Co-operation in Europe: The Human Dimension 1972-1992 (Hardcover), by Alex Heraclides. Routledge; 1 edition (September 1, 1993).
For almost 70 years Soviet and Russian military theorists have been fascinated with the concept of airborne operations. Now Russian theorists tackle the problems posed to such operations by high-precision weaponry. This work, using newly released and formerly classified Soviet and East German archives, provides a detailed record of the performance of Soviet airborne forces during peace and war.  Information

The Counterterror Coalitions: Cooperation with Europe, NATO, and the European Union (Paperback), by Nora Bensahel. RAND Corporation (November 25, 2003).
The long-term success of the counterterror campaign will depend on concerted cooperation from European states, but a key question is the extent to which that cooperation should be pursued through European multilateral institutions. This study argues that the United States should pursue military and intelligence cooperation on a bilateral basis, and it should increasingly pursue financial and law enforcement cooperation on a multilateral basis. The United States should adopt a nuanced strategy in its counterterror relations with Europe.  Information

The Evolution of Special Forces in Counter-Terrorism: The British and American Experiences (Praeger Studies in Diplomacy and Strategic Thought) (Hardcover), by J. Paul de B. Taillon. Praeger Publishers (December 30, 2000).
The threat of terrorism knows no borders, and, given the complexities of today's global system, no nation can afford to stand alone. This study considers the role that international cooperation plays in assisting elite military forces engaged in low-intensity and counter-terrorist operations, particularly hostage rescue efforts. Using historical examples from the experiences of Great Britain and the United States, the author concludes that cooperation (ranging from shared intelligence, to forward base access, to the provision of observers) can provide significant advantages in dealing with low-intensity operations. However, the most fruitful joint efforts involve shared activities by countries that possess a similar threat perception, usually in part a result of a common "sociology" in their view of historical developments. Before turning to modern counter-terrorism, Taillon addresses the respective military experiences of Britain and America within the wider realm of conventional and low-intensity operations. The main Anglo-American focus of the book gives primary importance to the developments and doctrine for the employment of special forces, as well as an analysis of more recent low-intensity and counter-terrorism operations, such as the 1980 Iranian embassy siege in London and the failure, that same year, of the American hostage rescue attempt in Teheran. Taillon hopes to identify and highlight those key aspects of cooperation at an international level which have, at least in part, been absolutely essential to successful counter-terrorist operations in the past and which seem destined to remain so in the future.  Information

The New Security Environment: The Impact On Russia, Central And Eastern Europe (Global Interdisciplinary Studies Series) (Hardcover), by Roger E. Kanet (Editor). Ashgate Publishing (January 30, 2005).  Information

Transatlantic Homeland Security?: Protecting Society in the Age of Catastrophic Terrorism (Hardcover), by Daalgard Nielsn. Routledge; 1 edition (December 15, 2005).
Creating an effective and integrated national homeland security effort represents a significant challenge. Europe and the United States have reacted differently to the emergence of mass casualty terrorism, but must work together to cope with the diverse issue areas, sectors, professions, and relevant actors involved in such a broad-based concept. This study provides both conceptual and practical guidance at a crucial time when intellectual and practical efforts to protect against the new terrorism should move beyond a purely domestic focus. Europe and the US have a lot to gain by coordinating more closely, and exchange of experience is crucial as we attempt to stay ahead of a learning enemy.   Information
