Overview

In this innovative new book, Caroline Thomas argues that the global development and security agendas are merging. No longer is the language of security confined within the straitjacket of the state and associated national security concerns. The spotlight is shifting to the legitimate security concerns of human beings. The book examines how development is promoted by global governance institutions and how this has impacted on human security in the 1990s. Thomas focuses on the effects of trade, finance, and investment liberalisation on deepening inequality. She explores different approaches for addressing the deepening inequality which threatens the economy at all levels, from the household, to the community, to the global. The book investigates reformist and transformist visions of the future and the contrasting policies tabled for their achievements. Thomas argues that ultimately human security requires a different developmental strategy.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Thomas (global politics, University of Southampton) explores security from a human, rather than state, perspective. She offers a conceptual approach to the subject, contextualizing the notion of security within a framework of globalization. Against the backdrop of increasing inequality between and within states, she analyzes dominant ideas about development. The focus then shifts to the practices of global governance institutions. Distributed in the US by Stylus. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
