  1. Featured Title: Crime-Terror Alliances and the State

    This new book by Lyubov Mincheva and Ted Gurr examines the political economy of transborder violence on the European Periphery that poses grave threats to domestic and international security in Europe and elsewhere. The units of analysis are unholy alliances, i.e. hybrid transborder militant and criminal networks, which have been active in the 1990s and the first decade of the 2000s. The concept of Unholy Alliances is extended to also include the trans-state criminal syndicates that arise in failed and dysfunctional states, or operate within the global illicit economy. It also addresses the question of what reigns supreme in securing the militants’ long term success: money; or social endowment, including strong identity networks?

  10. Fundamental Building Technology 2nd Edition ( January 2013)

    'The second edition of this excellent text builds on the detail of the original – each chapter contains clear and concise information on all parts of the construction process from site investigations to finishes using high quality diagrams to support the text. Each chapter also contains self-assessment questions which help the student gauge their understanding of the main concepts – I would recommend this book not only to academics but to new vocational practitioners as an essential read. Brilliant.'
