Overview

After penning more specialist-oriented works on security in Southeast Asia, Collins (politics and international relations, U. of Wales Swansea, UK) here writes to be accessible to undergraduates. Although he is not comprehensive of all the nontraditional issues of security, such as AIDS or people smuggling, he does attempt to give an overview of the range of issues and the complexity of defining security. After a case study of the South China Sea dispute, a planned case study of East Timor's nation building has been replaced by a discussion of the "War on Terrorism."
