Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Conflict, Security and Development is the most accessible introductory textbook available on the relationship between security and development, before, during and after conflict. Drawing on key academic debates, field research and policy-relevant developments since the 1990s, Beswick and Jackson provide a detailed — and student-friendly — overview of the significant ideas and events shaping today's debate.' — Alice Hills, Durham University, UK

'Jackson and Beswick provide an essential primer on the complex issues that lie at the intersection of security and development. Wide-ranging and clearly-written, the authors deftly weave both theory and practice, and challenge us all to think more critically – and more carefully – about the consequences of international intervention.'Timothy Donais, Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada

'This updated and developed edition of Beswick and Jackson’s book provides an excellent textbook to guide students, and other concerned readers, through the complex nexus of conflict, security and development issues and policies. Lively, accessible and organised, it combines clear academic analysis with insights from experience.' — Owen Greene, University of Bradford, UK
