It may not be surprising that this book is used as a textbook for a 'Human Security' class. Why? Because it nicely organizes the main issues of security, from both the modern perspective (state/national security) and post-modern perspective (human security). Apart from some spelling and grammar errors that book still needs to have fixed, you might find this book a well-organized source to learn about security debates. I cannot think of a better book that would make such a complex debate so well organized for students and those interested in security.
