I am doing a project on the physical aspects of security in a comparative
analysis between the United States and Scandinavia.
I am in need of approximately 20 books for a research project on designing with
security in mind.
I am comparing United States Architecture with Scandinavian Architecture with
regards to security.
The following books I have in my possession.
Security - Planning & Design - A Guide for Architects and Building Design
Professionals, AIA (2004)
Effective Physical Security - Third Edition, Lawrence J. Fennelly (2004)
Building Security (Red Book) - Handbook for Architectural Planning and Design.
Creating Defensible Space - U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
History of the United States Capital - A chronicle of design, construction and
politics, William C. Allen (2001)
Computer Security Handbook (Chapter 14 only) - 4th Edition (2002)
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design - Timothy D. Crowe (2000)
Security and Site Design - American Society of Landscape Architects (2005)
Design Out Crime - Creating Safe and Sustainable Communities - Ian Colquhoun
The Hidden Dimension - Edward Hall
Personal Space: The Behavioral Basis of Design - Robert Sommers
Behavior in Public Spaces - Irving Goffman
If someone could help me with about 9 more books, including any emphasizing
security techniques in Scandinavia as well, I would appreciate it.
I would like to break down these 20 books into 5 segments of 4 books to span a
study period of approximately 6 months.
Concepts that I'd like more information on are
* Security by Obscurity
* Minimalist Architecture being analogous to the Physical Security Requirements
Temperature and its affect on crime
I eagerly look forward to any suggestions for materials you could provide.
