This book examines security cooperation between Western states. Security cooperation occurs between Western (i.e. European and North American) states as a coping mechanism, as an imperfect substitute for integration. The book investigates the reasons for cooperation, what Aristotle called the ‘final cause’, as well as the material, formal, and efficient causes of cooperation. Such a causal explanation is based on a Critical Realist philosophy of social science. The book is also based on an embedded multiple-case study; the states studied are the United States, France, and Luxembourg. Within each state, the embedded subcases are three types of state security organizations: the armed forces, law enforcement, and intelligence agencies, which have rarely been compared in this way. Comparing different types of states and different types of state security organizations has allowed temporal, spatial, national, and functional variation in cooperation to be identified and theorized. The empirical evidence studied includes participant observations at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and documents such as state policy documents, annual reports by organizations, reports by parliaments and non-governmental organizations, autobiographies, books by investigative journalists, and articles by newspapers and magazines. The book is also based on a score of elite interviews with ambassadors, diplomatic liaisons, ministerial advisors, foreign ministry officials, and military commanders. This book will be of much interest to students of security studies, intelligence studies, military studies and International Relations in general.

This book examines the problem of police discipline from the collective perspective of professional law enforcement leaders. It offers the reader practical, not theoretical, solutions in dealing with problem employees and misconduct incidents. It reflects the collective experience and dedication of a highly experienced group of Illinois police chiefs and sheriffs, both in large and small departments, in urban and rural communities. Law enforcement executives developed the ideas, solutions, and practical suggestions throughout the book. The case study approach used in the book promotes deliberative exchange and contributes to further understanding of the complex issues. Seventeen cases of personnel problems confronted by law enforcement administrators are included. Some of these include: minority rights, mental health, sick time abuse, domestic violence, insubordination, blue flue, prisoner abuse, improper political involvement, alcoholism, and others. The details of each case are given followed by a summary of major issues and dilemmas that each case presents. Legal considerations in each case are summarized to provide the reader with a complete foundation for further analysis. It is intended to be used by police educators, trainers, students and practitioners to facilitate learning in an interactive group discussion model.
