Maritime Security, 2e, provides practical, experience-based, and proven knowledge - and a "how-to-guide" - on maritime security. McNicholas explains in clear language how commercial seaports and vessels function; what threats currently exist; what security policies, procedures, systems, and measures must be implemented to mitigate these threats; and how to conduct ship and port security assessments and plans. Whether the problem is weapons of mass destruction or cargo theft, Maritime Security provides invaluable guidance for the professionals who protect our shipping and ports. New chapters focus on whole government maritime security, UN legal conventions and frameworks, transnational crime, and migration. Updates throughout will provide the latest information in increasingly important field.

Shipping Operations Management

This book focuses on the management of ship operations, an activity that requires integrative knowledge and technical expertise that spans various disciplines. As such, ship operations personnel are expected to be well-versed with aspects of management, economics, engineering, technology and law. Further, ship operations management requires the ability to identify and neutralize threats and to manage risks and make decisions that will optimize costs and contribute to performance improvements. Despite the fundamental nature of ship operations management, no book has ever attempted to reconcile and compile a comprehensive body of knowledge, while pursuing a coherent, structured and systematic approach. This edited volume addresses that fundamental gap in the extant literature, and brings together a wealth of knowledge from experts in their respective fields. Concretely, it explores issues of organization, technical management, crewing and behavioral issues, chartering and post fixture, risk management, finance, legal aspects of international conventions and regulations, attainment of safety, security and marine insurance, as well as ocean governance and sustainability. As such, the book offers a vital reference guide for maritime companies and organizations, while also serving as a teaching supplement in academic and professional maritime programmes.

Ship management has constantly had to evolve to take into account the advancements in technology as well as the demands of the shipping industry. Having internet access and email on board ship has meant that the ship manager has to possess certain sets of skills to function effectively in the post, including computer literacy. The emergence of large multi-national ship management companies has also changed how business is conducted and this is turn means that the ship manager and tiers of management within the organization have had to evolve to cope with the demands of working with a multi-national workforce. Furthermore, since the mid-1980s there has been an ever expanding raft of legislation that is more restrictive for companies to meet, and a shrinking of profit margins has seen a shift in how companies are required to operate to survive. This book addresses the demands of 21st century ship management with the focus of the book as much about the people who manage ships as about the theory and practice of ship management.

Die Analysen des vorliegenden Bandes bieten zahlreiche Perspektiven auf das relativ neue Politikfeld "Maritime Sicherheit" und schließen eine bestehende Forschungslücke in Deutschland. Im ersten Kapitel werden theoretische Analysemodelle zur maritimen Sicherheit diskutiert. Anschließend nähern sich die Autorinnen und Autoren dem maritimen Raum wobei sie der wirtschaftlichen, rechtlichen und geostrategischen Dimension nachgehen. Der dritte Abschnitt legt den Schwerpunkt auf transnationale Herausforderungen, die maritime Unsicherheit bedingen: organisierte Kriminalität, Piraterie, Terrorismus, Wettlauf um Ressourcen, Umwelt- und Klimaveränderungen. Im vierten Teil des Buches werden schließlich ausgewählte Akteure, ihre Strategien, Kapazitäten und Probleme im Umgang mit maritimer (Un-) Sicherheit betrachtet. Neben den „Permanent 5“ des UN-Sicherheitsrats - den USA, Großbritannien, Russland, China und Frankreich - stehen dabei auch die Bundesrepublik Deutschland sowie die EU und die NATO im Fokus.

Jack Ryan riskiert alles – noch nie war der Einsatz so hoch Wieder einmal legt Bestsellerautor Tom Clancy eine mitreißende Story vor, die schon morgen Wirklichkeit werden könnte: Interne politische und wirtschaftliche Kämpfe sorgen in China dafür, dass die Führung des Landes immer mehr an Einfluss verliert. Um die eigene Macht zu untermauern, soll ein lang gehegter Wunsch in die Tat umgesetzt werden: sich Taiwan mittels eines Militärschlags einzuverleiben. Doch die Insel steht unter dem Schutz der Vereinigten Staaten. Für Präsident Jack Ryan ist die Stunde der großen Entscheidung gekommen. Wie kann er den Krieg der Supermächte verhindern? Für die verdeckt agierenden Kämpfer der Geheimorganisation »Campus« ist der Krieg gegen die Feinde Amerikas nie ausgefochten. Diesmal sind Jack Ryan junior und seine Kameraden in unmittelbarer Gefahr: Die Existenz des »Campus« wurde aufgedeckt, und da ist der Weg zu seiner Zerstörung nicht weit. Gleichzeitig hat Jack Ryan senior als amtierender US-Präsident alle Hände voll zu tun. Die politische Balance in China ist nach desaströsen Wirtschaftsentwicklungen gehörig ins Wanken geraten. Aus Gründen der Machterhaltung verlagern die Regierenden die Aufmerksamkeit nach außen und überfallen Taiwan, ein Land, auf das China Anspruch erhebt, das aber den Schutz der USA genießt. Jetzt stehen sich zwei Supermächte gegenüber, und Jack Ryan sieht sich gezwungen, seinen einzigen Joker auszuspielen. Aber so wie es aussieht, wird bereits ein weltumspannender Krieg toben, bevor er den »Campus« effektiv einsetzen kann. Denn im Cyberspace hat der Krieg längst begonnen...
