520    Long recognised as a site where criminal elements have 
       flourished, for centuries the waterfront has been 
       exploited by opportunistic individuals for a whole raft of
       illicit purposes. History has shown that the policing of 
       this area poses a formidable challenge, one that continues
       to this day, as law enforcement seeks to alleviate 
       concerns over organised crime, smuggling, trafficking, 
       pillage, and terrorism. This text fully explore the 
       intricacies of how crime is controlled on the waterfront, 
       as well as our understanding of the policing 
       'partnerships' that exist between state and non-state 
       actors. Charting the complex configuration of waterfront 
       'security networks' using a range of analytical techniques,
       this book presents new empirical data, which exposes and 
       explains the social structures that enable policing 
       partnerships to function when faced with the unique 
       challenges of the waterfront. Particularly striking is the
       use of enhanced or adjusted theoretical discussions, which
       may not yet have been applied in a policing or security 
       setting, to both shape and develop previous waterfront 
       security debates, resulting in a work that is both 
       innovative and, yet, still routed in the traditions of 
       empirical research. Overall analysis is achieved through a
       comparative research design, evaluating the narratives of 
       both state and non-state security providers at the 
       American Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and the 
       Australian Port of Melbourne; the busiest ports in each
