I gratefully acknowledge the generous support of the British Academy, whose award of a Research Readership made this book possible.
Thanks are due to members of the Security reading group at Oxford — Andrew Ashworth, Benjamin Goold, Liora Lazarus, and Ian Loader — for the stimulating debates we have had over many years.
The book is better for their criticisms and I am hugely grateful to them. All the usual disclaimers apply. My thanks are also due to my graduate students for challenging my assumptions and introducing me to security in more guises than I could otherwise have imagined. I thank my hosts and all those who participated for their input and criticisms.
Security was the province of international relations, international law, and war studies. Security referred to national or military security, matters well beyond parochial criminological concerns.
Today it is a central theme in criminology. The new obsession with security is a complex story that will be the task of this book to tell from the perspective of criminology.
New techniques of crime prevention and community safety initiatives combine to render security a concern not only of the police but also of local authorities, interagency partnerships, voluntary groups, and private citizens.
The burgeoning private security industry has generated a growing population of security agents ranging from individual operators, through medium-sized firms, to vast multinational security conglomerates employing tens, even hundreds, of thousands.
In many jurisdictions private security personnel now outnumber those employed in public policing, such that the presumption of safety as a public good is being challenged by the notion of security as a private commodity.
In both public and private spheres the pursuit of security is an enterprise in its own right with a dynamic and momentum distinct from crime rates. Together these factors explain why security now attracts so much criminological attention.
Beyond the domestic scene, transnational policing organizations and international associations have established a security terrain that traverses national boundaries, while commercial enterprise has created a global market for security.
Yet the exceptional powers justified by this purported state of emergency have grave implications for civil liberties and this has provoked intense political and academic debate about how and in what measure security should be pursued.
These developments have also made urgently necessary a dispassionate analysis of what security is and what may justly be done in its name. In short, a range of disciplinary paradigm shifts, policy changes, economic factors, and world political events have combined to shift security to the forefront of the criminological agenda.
Security remains, however, too big an idea to be constrained by the disciplinary strictures of criminology, or indeed any other single discipline. The scholar of security must range not only over the disciplines of international relations, public international law, and war studies that have dominated the security field historically but also over political theory, legal philosophy, and economics.
In these latter disciplines lies the possibility of thinking critically about security as a public good, as a means to other goods, and, most disturbingly, as a tradable commodity subject to the vagaries of the growing security market.
This book seeks to introduce, analyse, and criticize the concept of security in all its sundry forms and reflect upon its significance, implications, and dangers.
BitChute aims to put creators first and provide them with a service that they can use to flourish and express their ideas freely. The idea of security as intimately related with liberty came to be widely accepted in the liberal tradition. As Burchell observes, by ‘the end of the eighteenth century the terms liberty and security have become almost synonymous’ (Burchell ).

It synthesizes the emergent criminological literature on security and situates this within debates about security occurring in other disciplines. Scholars have tended to think about security within their immediate discipline and in detachment from one another.
One aim of this book, therefore, is to break down these boundaries in order better to understand security in all its variety and complexity.
To this end, Chapter 1 explores the multiple meanings condensed within the term security; meanings that lend it both appeal and ambiguous power Zedner a.- computer intrusion that involves figuring out a password needed to access a computer or information system, sometimes for criminal purposes - randomly sequenced letters, numbers and symbols always make for the best passwords because of software tools used to crack passwords that are often based on interests, hobbies, etc.
