International terrorism and threats to security; managerial and organizational challenges.


International terrorism and threats to security; managerial and organizational challenges.

Ed. by Ronald J. Burke and Cary L. Cooper.

Edward Elgar Publishing


302 pages




Now we glance over our shoulders, suspect unattended packages, diligently remove our shoes, and pay more attention to those who we believe do not seem to belong. Whether this change in behavior is a positive deterrent to violence remains to be seen, but Burke (organizational behavior, York U. Canada), Cooper (organizational psychology, Lancaster U.) and their contributors make it clear that ways we live our public lives have been altered by the specter of terrorism. Writing for the general readership as well as for professionals in the field of terrorism detection and deterrence, they describe the short- and long-term impact of terrorism on organizations and individuals, shifts in methods of managing responses to terrorism through crisis management, and new concerns means of building resilience for business professionals ranging from facilities experts to human resources specialists.
