"Where this book is strong is on the concepts underlyinginternational security concerns, particularly as viewed through thenational security or military prism. This is Robinson's backgroundand specialism and it is here that he excels."
"Here is a great reference volume that puts authoritative andclearly written definitions for a wide array of terms in theinternational security studies field readily into the hands ofgraduate and undergraduate students. This dictionary will be aninvaluable tool for navigating the most important conceptuallandmarks in the international security studies literature."
Richard L. Russell, Georgetown University and NationalDefense University
"Writings on international security tend to be dense, not merelywith one set of specialist terms, but with many. As one reads aboutthis topic, one encounters scholarly concepts, diplomaticeuphemisms, journalistic catch-phrases and the acronym-ladenlanguage of contemporary armed forces. Robinson's comprehensive andhighly informative dictionary explains these various terminologiesin plain English, providing an invaluable guide to works on thesubject of international security and alerting even the mostexperienced readers to the full meanings of terms in thisfield."
