Description:
This analysis presents a highly innovative, qualitative study of networks in the field of national security. Developing our understanding of 'organisational networks' in organisational theory, management and public administration, and 'security net-works' in criminology and international relations, he presents a multi-disciplinary analysis of network forms of organisation. The author puts forward a methodological framework involving five levels of analysis -- structural, cultural, policy, technological and relational -- with which we can better analyse and understand the dynamics and effectiveness of networks.
Introduction : networks and national security -- Understanding networks : network analysis, network organisations and security networks -- Understanding network dynamics and network effectiveness : methodological framework and issues -- Networks and structure -- Networks and culture -- Networks and policy -- Networks and technology -- Networks and relationships.
