What People are Saying About This

Scott Kaufman

This wonderful book will provide both generalists and specialists a better understanding of the multidimensionality of issues related to human security. All government officials should give this work a careful read as they consider how their policies will enhance or inhibit the development of a more stable, secure world.

Richard Dean Burns

In a balanced, well-written synthesis, Battersby and Siracusa quite rightly point out that the quest for human security requires resolution of political, social, and economic injustices. Instructors will find this an excellent book to motivate students to think about human problems globally.
