Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An outstanding book, written by distinguished scholars, that provides a comprehensive picture of security and strategy in our time. It stands out from other texts [by having a] better balancing theoretical insights and empirical investigations, and in bringing out so clearly the core debates and dilemmas that define security and international order in the 21st century." - Amitav Acharya, American University, Washington DC

"For university students trying to make sense of a rapidly changing international security environment, the importance of good conceptually-driven texts has never been greater. Artfully crafted, the third edition of Contemporary Security and Strategy deftly combines international relations theory with critical thinking and 'real world' substantive issues. Expanded coverage of the environment, human security, and the ever widening implications of the global arms trade are welcome additions." - Douglas A. Borer, Naval Postgraduate School, California

Reviews of the 1st edition:

"[A] good set of essays that can be used for both graduate and undergraduate courses in security studies... It will be an important resource for scholars and advanced students of military security. It provides a structured and balanced overview, together with a comprehensive bibliography. It should be a 'must buy' for security studies courses." - Malcolm Chalmers, International Affairs

"... the papers are of a uniformly high standard, written with admirable clarity, and they provide a useful introduction to the topics that are addressed." - Duncan Bell, Millennium
