Description : In this timely and important book, Andrew Lynch and George Williams provide a clear and accessible guide to the major components of Australia’s anti-terrorism laws and their effects. They show readers: what constitutes a crime of terrorism in Australia, what powers our main intelligence agency has to question and detain members of the community, what happens when the authorities seek a control order or an order of preventative detention over an individual, what speech risks making a person liable for the crime of sedition, how judicial processes have been modified for the trial of people charged with terrorism offences Lynch and Williams have contributed vigorously to the public debate since September 11. In What Price Security? they argue that Australia has gone too far in limiting civil rights in the name of anti-terrorism. “In fighting the ‘war on terror’,” they write, “it is vital that we do not allow ourselves to become the victim of our own fears.”

Description : In the wake of the September 11 attacks, American citizens within the United States constantly worry about security against future terrorist attacks. But author Gordon Greer delves further into this subject by trying to understand why the general public is so intent on the ramifications of security measures, such as the Patriot Act.The history of warfare might provide an answer. Greer examines domestic security throughout the history of the United States. During a period of war or the aftermath of war, the American government has generally found it necessary to install security measures that may limit a citizen's basic rights or freedoms.Greer discusses these security issues from the earliest history of the United States, beginning with the early American settlers and the Revolutionary War through World War II and the Cold War. Greer points out that ordinary American citizens may chafe under the constraints such wars produce simply because the United States has arguably never been a totalitarian government.What Price Security? is a thought-provoking look at a subject that affects us all, offering insight into how America can protect itself against future attacks.

Description : This collection of scholarly essays explores the role of history in terrorism studies and today’s counterterrorism initiatives. In Doomed to Repeat?, scholars, policy makers, and other practitioners explore how a better understanding of the past can help us combat terrorism in the future. The first section establishes a broader context for discussion by examining the connections between history and Terrorism Studies. The second section presents the insights of non-historians who know the importance of historical perspective in understanding current events. Section Three provides case studies that explore the history of terrorism and politically motivated violence. Section Four concludes by placing concerns about terrorism in regional and foreign policy context. “This collection helps us advance our understanding of terrorism beyond simplistic and dichotomist assertions about “them” and “us.” Taken together, these essays highlight the importance of analyzing, rather than assuming.” —Chris Dixon, Professor, School of History, Philosophy, Religion, and Classics, The University of Queensland, Australia

Description : Financial Economics, Risk and Information presents the fundamentals of finance in static and dynamic frameworks with focus on risk and information. The objective of this book is to introduce undergraduate and first-year graduate students to the methods and solutions of the main problems in finance theory relating to the economics of uncertainty and information.

The focus is on developing a core body of theory that will provide the student with a solid intellectual foundation for more advanced topics and methods.

The starting point is the traditional mean-variance approach, followed by portfolio choice from first principles. The topics are extended to alternative market structures, alternative contractual arrangements and agency, dynamic stochastic general equilibrium in discrete and continuous time, attitudes towards risk and towards inter-temporal substitution in discrete and continuous time; and option pricing. In general, the book presents a balanced introduction to the use of stochastic methods in discrete and continuous time in the field of financial economics.

Description : Stock market performance is becoming an important indicator of a nation's economy. It reflects through stock prices and has tremendous influence in shaping the global economy. When the stock market tumbles we become nervous about the weakness of the economy. When it is strong, everyone senses economic prosperity. Typically investors come from various segments of the population. The success depends on investors' knowledge and capacity in decision making. Some are efficient enough to make profits from investing in the stock market, while others lose. There are many theories and schools of thought operating in the field of stock investment. Abundance of literature, training and analytical tools are also available. Yet, investors need to understand the fundamentals of stock pricing mechanism. Often, the whole process seems very difficult as the risks of investing in stocks are of two types. One type of risk can be diversified away; while the other cannot. The risks that cannot be diversified away are called systematic risks and vary from one market to another. Besides, global stock market may be integrated. From Australian perspective this monograph shades answers to related questions.
