Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415054435, Hardcover)

After 1992, the European community will reap enormous benefits from opening its internal frontiers. But part of the price is increased mobility for terrorists, drug-traffickers, and money launderers - mobility to operate and to evade capture. Richard Clutterbuck confronts these problems in this analysis of European security. He considers the systems deployed by the European Community countries in attempting to curb organized crime and terror, and assesses which of these worked, which did not, and why. Why, for example, did the "pentiti" succeed in breaking terrorism in Italy, while the "supergrasses" failed to do so in Northern Ireland? He describes the technology now becoming available, for example the prevention of impersonation by the digital recording of fingerprints, voice and vein patterns and DNA, the linkage of Europe's national police computers, and the detection of explosives by vapour sniffing and neutron bombardment. He makes some radical proposals for airport security, fighting drug trafficking, and overcoming the intimidation of witnesses and juries, and examines their implications for civil liberties. Finally the book foresees the prospect of the USSR, the USA and a united Europe co-operating for the first time to overcome the common enemy of terrorism.
