Bibliography

This bibliography will depend on your help to grow. Please send us your suggestions for essential reading on the topics covered in our conferences. These can be traditional academic journals or books, online articles, publications or forums, and so forth.

Each of our “global threats” pages now has a bibliography section of its own; our intention is that new bibliography entries will be copied from this page to the relevant target page, hopefully on a weekly basis. In addition, page moderators can add their own entries directly onto their page.
