Violence at Work by Martin Gill

Book Description

Workplace violence has emerged as a growing concern in today's interdependent political economy, and increasing attention is being paid to the phenomenon both by business and in the academic world to identifying its causes and to devise strategies to prevent it. In this book a distinguished international team, composed of both academics and practitioners, identify and address the key issues. It reviews the earlier literature on workplace violence, identifying and assessing key trends and patterns of violence at work, and reapplying traditional theories of victimisation and approaches to prevention, security and safety. Particular attention is paid to case studies which reflect innovative practice in prevention strategies, and in assessing informal frameworks which have been developed in response to this. Overall this book provides a foundation on which to base ways of better explaining, predicting, understanding and preventing workplace violence.

Handbook of Security by Martin Gill Handbook of Security, Hardback (July 2006)

This text is essential reading for all those engaged with the security world. Split into five parts, it begins with the study of security as a discipline. It then looks at crime in organizations and analyzes the various sub-sectors of security. A section on management issues precedes the final section looking at issues that impact security.

Crime at Work by Martin Gill Crime at Work, Paperback (September 1994)

There has been little consideration of the extent, impact and patterns of crimes in the workplace. This important text suggests that such an omission is no longer justified, and reflects the realization that effective responses to crime are based on the need to collect and share information.
