Synopsis

The response of the U.S. federal government to the events of September 11, 2001 has reflected the challenge of striking a balance between implementing security measures to deter terrorist attacks while at the same time limiting disruption to air commerce. Airport and Aviation Security: U.S. Policy and Strategy in the Age of Global Terrorism is a comprehensive reference that examines the persistent threats to aviation security that led up to the terrorist attacks of September 11th, describes subsequent terror plots against aviation assets, and explores U.S. efforts to counter and mitigate these threats.











Addressing the homeland security challenges facing the U.S. in the age of terrorism, this text explores:























Security protocol prior to 9/11

Precursors to 9/11

The rising threat of Al Qaeda

Tactical and congressional response to 9/11, including new legislation

The broader context of risk assessment

Intelligence gathering

Airport security, including passenger, baggage, and employee screening

Airline in-flight security measures

Airport perimeter security

The threat of shoulder-fired missiles

Security for GA (general aviation) operations and airports

















Beginning with a historical backdrop describing the dawn of the age of global terrorism in the 1960s and continuing up until the present time, the book demonstrates the broad social and political context underlying recent changes in the aviation security system as a direct result of the 9/11 attacks. Coverage examines ongoing threats and vulnerabilities to the aviation infrastructure, including an exploration of how past terrorist incidents have come to shape U.S. policy and strategy.
