Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Michael E. Smith's new textbook promises to reinvigorate the teaching of international security. Emphasizing the fundamental role of politics and avoiding the twin perils of excessively abstract grand theorizing and ungeneralizable explanations of unique events, it offers an original and insightful framework that facilitates analysis and comparison across the full range of traditional and non-traditional international security issues." —John S. Duffield, Georgia State University

"This welcome new text strikes just the right balance. It is innovative, fresh, and breaks new ground, but is comprehensive, careful, and covers the basics. It gives due regard to different schools of thought, but is admirably synthetic. And it is sophisticated and thoughtful, but eminently readable and accessible." —Charles A. Kupchan, Georgetown University and Council on Foreign Relations

“A highly readable new introduction to the study of international security which provides students with a clear and comprehensive account of the main dynamics behind the key fault lines of the twenty-first century. Its great merits are that theory is deployed to illustrate empirical reality rather than as an end in itself, its skilful navigation between explanatory narrative and normative prescription, and that it sets international security firmly within the context of complex political processes being played out around the globe." —Jolyon Howorth, Yale University and University of Bath
