We live in an insecure world. The Islamic State, Ebola, hackers, and climate change threaten both national security and human security. This revised edition of Seeking Security in an Insecure World addresses these and other challenges and provides a thorough, accessible introduction to contemporary security studies.
From nuclear proliferation to human trafficking, the threats examined span both the traditional and new paradigms in security studies. All chapters are updated and a wide range of new topics are discussed, including the Syrian civil war, Russia??s annexation of Crimea and its intervention in East Ukraine, the global refugee crisis, China??s military buildup, the impact of fracking on oil and gas markets, and rapidly evolving cyberwar capabilities. The book??s focus, however, is not solely on threats to security. Each chapter also addresses what has been and what can be done to enhance security. Overall, Seeking Security in an Insecure World offers a clear and compelling framework for understanding what security means today and how it can best be achieved.
