the greatest fear. Discussed at length by experts, there was also popular interest, Mysyrowicz citing a spate of interwar novels set in the aftermath of a chemical apocalypse.16 Poison gas represented the ultimate weapon, ‘capable in a few minutes of destroying all life in a large city like Paris’.17 The French population was thus exposed, via official and unofficial channels, to future war as potential catastrophe. Yet it appears little in the personal narratives I  recorded; or at least, people remembered little of any discussions. For the younger interviewees

’s return to power in April 1942, the collaborationists moved further onto the stage, seeking closer alliance with Germany, and with an increasing ideological commitment to fascism. In early 1944, French fascists Philippe Henriot, Marcel Déat and Joseph Darnand entered the government. The technocrats  – experts who obtained powerful administrative positions when elected politicians lost their posts in 1940  – were a constant presence at Vichy. As resources dwindled in France, the administrative apparatus of the state grew, as did its presence in people’s lives. The

internment. The call for improvements in Special Branch’s interrogation capability led to the JSIW, the UK’s experts on interrogation, being called in. As the custodians of expertise in the ‘five techniques’, the training that took place at the Intelligence Centre saw the JSIW pass that expertise to Special Branch. Fourteen men in total were interrogated using the ‘five techniques

States. Korea’s economy was depressed, education levels were low, and the brain drain caused by colonial occupation had severely weakened its leadership basis. 8 Hence, Western experts from the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Agency (UNRRA) and the Allied forces agreed that external help was needed. 9 After the hasty overnight agreement between the Americans and the Soviets in late August 1945 that established the 38th

their visibility as private players in food aid, relief, and development assistance, despite growing competition from USAID experts and agencies such as the Peace Corps. Lyndon B.

This edited collection surveys how non-Western states have responded to the threats of domestic and international terrorism in ways consistent with and reflective of their broad historical, political, cultural and religious traditions. It presents a series of eighteen case studies of counterterrorism theory and practice in the non-Western world, including countries such as China, Japan, India, Pakistan, Egypt and Brazil. These case studies, written by country experts and drawing on original-language sources, demonstrate the diversity of counterterrorism theory and practice and illustrate that how the world ‘sees’ and responds to terrorism is different from the way that the United States, the United Kingdom and many European governments do. This volume – the first ever comprehensive account of counterterrorism in the non-Western world – will be of interest to students, scholars and policymakers responsible for developing counterterrorism policy.

measures should be taken are PSCs themselves, who have become ‘security experts’ who not only provide security tools but also security knowledge (Leander 2005 : 612). Thus, as Neocleous ( 2007 ) convincingly argues, the need for security does not come from an objective outside force, but is produced by the same security industry that sells it. While security has often been analysed through the lens of

However, to a significant extent what public finance experts aim to transfer to developing countries is a set of objectives and principles rather than any particular system for achieving them. These principles include, for example, transparency and credibility in budget preparation, central control of government funds in a single account

Among the bilateral agencies, the US government was a significant donor, and USAID was particularly important in PFM development. Through its ability to deploy significant funding and large numbers of technical experts quickly it
