A Troubling View Of Society
am 17. Februar 2000
The author heads a private security agency that supports Government agencies, public figures, and private citizens. He discusses why people perform violent acts, and how his agency works with the authorities to prevent violent acts.
This book is troubling because it immerses the reader in fear. Mr. de Becker discusses the types of potentially violent cases that his agency receives. The author does list advance signals indicating when individuals *might* fear for their safety, an extremely useful discussion. But many of his examples concern public figures who purposefully maintain high media visibility (e.g., celebrities and government officials). Often these examples do not reflect threats faced by private citizens.
