There is a way to reduce significantly the chances of being targeted by thieves: fit an alarm. But isn't that expensive and complicated? Not if you build your own system. This book shows you how, with common sense and basic do-it-yourself skills, you can protect your home. It also gives tips and ideas which will help you to maintain and improve your home security, even if you already have an alarm.
Every reason now exists to make homes more secure: the crime rate is increasing, insurance companies are insisting on adequate protection, and more householders are improving home security, so criminals are seeking out the easier jobs - one of which could be yours! This book provides practical, independent guidance. It shows how burglars work, and how to thwart them. In a jargon-free way, the selection and installation of alarm systems are described in this practical guide for home-owners.

Redefining Peace, Security, and Kyosei from a Multidisciplinary Perspective
Author: Yōichirō Murakami
Publisher: Washington State University Press
Category: Political Science
Using concise terms, peace can be defined as freedom from hostility; security as immunity from danger; and kyosei as social responsibility. Can a new comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to peace studies be developed? Why is a new direction essential, and what kind of impact might it have? How can educational institutions reach across disciplines to educate students about these globally important concepts? In a pioneering cross-cultural, transnational, and multifaceted endeavor, Japanese and American scholars from various disciplines jointly explore these challenging questions by redefining the three key concepts of "peace, security and kyosei." Based on academic analyses in Japan and the United States, the book offers new perspectives for interdisciplinary peace studies and stimulates a public dialogue on how to shape a safer and more peaceful future for individuals, communities, and nations.
