Overview

Images of famine, debt, economic stagnation and decay in the South, coupled with an uneasy acknowledgement of the interdependence of military and economic security, demand an urgent re-evaluation of the security relations between the South and North. In this 1989 volume, thirteen distinguished contributors address the central problem of competing conceptions of security. Security debates invariably give priority and prominence to the position of the West within an East/West equation. This work redresses this imbalance by highlighting the concerns and priorities of the developing states in the South/North dimensions at this time. Each of the six thematic parts comprises two contrasting treatments; one from the Third World perspective and the other from the viewpoint of the industrialised North. This book will be of use to students and policy makers as well as specialists of specific issues such as debt and political violence.
