Spotlight on Security for Real Estate Managers, Second Edition.

- Aiming to help real estate managers reduce crime, deal with the consequences of crime, and reduce liability, the book hits its goal spot on.

Examples, tables, lists, outlines, sidebars, and other elements add depth to the narrative.

- Aid workers, who render assistance to the most vulnerable populations in the least hospitable regions of the world, have long operated with protected status under international humanitarian law.

This trend was highlighted in a 2006 joint report by the Humanitarian Policy Group (HPG) and the Center on International Cooperation—“Providing Aid in Insecure Environments: Trends in Policy and Operations”—that studied major violent acts against aid workers from 1997-2005.
