  • Threat Finance: Disconnecting the Lifeline of Organized Crime and Terrorism - about which Chris Donnelly said "The economic aspects of threats to our national security posed by terrorism and organised crime have received relatively little attention from those charged with ensuring our security and countering those threats. This thorough, penetrating and highly original study discusses why this has been the case, and explains the nature of the problem with admirable clarity. Dr Keene’s eminently sensible, realistic recommendations should be required reading for everyone interested in national and international security." The other reviewers on the back cover were H. R. McMaster, Kenneth Murray, Barry Rider and Karl Barclay.[5]
