Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'A most rigorous and systematic introduction to the contemporary debates in the field of international security studies. It is eminently readable and accessible for undergraduate and postgraduate students alike.' Tony McGrew, Southampton University

Security Studies Today offers a rich comprehensive discussion of post-Cold War security agendas: it presents a variety of theoretical traditions form realism to feminism as well as outlining some new security issues. The book us unique in its recognition of a wide spectrum of theoretical approaches from conventional to post-positivist. Going well beyond realism’s focus on the security of the state, Security Studies Today is an important text for students seeking to understand the multiple security challenges facing individuals and their environment at the beginning of the twenty-first century.’ — Judith Ann Tickner, School of International Relations, University of Southern California

‘A most rigorous and systemic introduction to the contemporary debates in the field of international security studies. It is eminently readable and accessible for undergraduate and postgraduate students alike. It delivers a balanced and careful analysis of contemporary approaches to security but does so in a manner which conveys a real sense of the on-going renaissance in the academic study of security.’ — Anthony McGrew, Professor of International Relations, University of Southampton
