Overview

In States of Global Insecurity, Daniel Béland undertakes a comparative, historical, and political analysis of state protection and the politics of insecurity surrounding it.  By looking at four major economic, social, and environmental issues (mad cow disease, terrorism and aviation security, urban delinquency, and health care reform), the author expertly describes the political logics behind state making and the social construction of collective insecurity in the context of globalization. States of Global Insecurity can be used in a variety of courses, including introductory sociology, globalization, political sociology, social problems, social stratification, criminology, political science, and modern world history.
