Abstract

Fully revised to incorporate recent developments, this third edition of Understanding Global Security analyzes the variety of ways in which peoples lives are threatened and / or secured in contemporary global politics. The traditional focus of Security Studies texts: war, deterrence and terrorism are analyzed alongside non-military security issues such as famine, crime, disease, disasters, environmental degradation and human rights abuses to provide a comprehensive survey of how and why people are killed in the contemporary world. Key concepts of International Relations and Globalization are defined and explained, prominent political thinkers and activists are profiled in short biographies and the human impact of the various security threats considered graphically illustrated in ‘Top Ten’ tables. Hence this textbook introduces students to the full range of security issues in a clear and concise format that is easy to follow.
